Here’s a lowdown the dies for 7.5x55. The k31 has a different chamber than all the previous Schmidt Rubin models. Redding dies are for the k31, Hornady makes dies for both, so make sure they don’t say k31 anywhere on them. RCBS dies are for the older 1911 chamber, and lee dies are for the older 1911 also. Neck sizing works well if you are shooting mild loads, but if you are trying to get the performance the round was designed for, FL sizing is key because the weak extraction system.
