    I have RCBS full length resizing dies that I am wondering if I should clean. I dont see any indication that they need cleaned but i was wondering. I have loaded probably only about 400 rounds through most of mine. can you just soak them in something or do you have to take them apart and if you take them apart is there much to getting them back together. Just have never done it. Any ideas or recommendations would be helpful.

    All I ever do is take the decapping rod out and run a small nylon bottle-brush or bore brush through mine very occasionally. Also clean the expander button while you have it out.

    They do get primer, powder & case lube residue build-up in them eventually. The expander button more so then the die body itself.
