Lucky for us that none of the components we have are made with tolerances like that, so we don't have to worry about them.

People do it all the time with the bushing/tool head/turret style presses. A lock ring with a setscrew dogged into the die will work too as will the split set collar type lock nuts.

Is it for the long range folks? Maybe not but there is a guy named David Tubb that uses a 550 with a removable tool head. I don't think there are any riflemen that have won more than he has.
I'm with you 110% on this one. I don't know of any reloading equipment that can make ammo "exact" even leaving the equipment alone after the original mounting, tweaking and torquing to "perfection". As you say David Tubbs has proven over and over that such anal procedures aren't necessary. If they were, the real serious competitors would be paying $10,000 each, for a single die mounted into its own press, manufactured with the necessary perfectly machined tolerances, another $10,000 for a clean room to use them in. Don't know where you'd find "perfect" cases, bullets and powder able make such an undertaking worth while. Using a $200-$1000 press, and $40-$100 dies.....don't bother looking.

Update- I actually got a call from RCBS about my rebate.
Contrary to what they had been doing, sending $50 instead of the requested bullets- they said the bullets I requested, .45 Gold Dots were unavailable, and would I be willing to take 500 9mm Gold Dots.
I said YES! Still worth way more than $50!

Problem is-
My form was sent in early December 2013.
Call I received was about early February 2014
Website still shows my rebate as "processing"
Now mid APRIL and no bullets yet

BTW they said they had "run out" of .45 bullets. We all know that can't be true as they (as a corporation) MAKE them

What a way to run a company.....
