    I purchased some used dies and I'm thinking, the seating plug may be the SWC type if so, will it work for 44 JSP and JFP bullets? I think it must be a vintage type that has the 1/4" x 28 thread stem which has to be threaded in and, removed out the bottom of the die. I plan to load 44 magnum only Any info will sure be helpful Thanks! :)

    Unless you are seating a fragile or tipped rifle bullet. . . I just can't see the seating stem damaging the bullet enough to matter. Provided the stem is conical enough to center the bullet, just use it. If it leaves a mark, it's a smaller mark than will be left by obturation.

    It's a Ruger Super Redhawk with 7.5" barrel. Mostly range practice to get used to it.

    You always have the option of calling RCBS. However, after posts here that call would be unnecessary. If I get a ring around the nose of the bullet it would be time to reach out. Try um' and see what happens.
