Cleaning cartridge dies

I detail strip & clean my dies about every 2-3 years depending on the load volume. I drop them in my ultrasonic cleaner, pour in some "simple green", put the lid back on, & hum them for about 30 minutes.

Blow dry with compressed air, spray lube, & reassemble. The majority of my dies are rcbs & purchased in the mid 1970's.

Yes, keep those dies clean inside & outside to help you create the best hand-rolled ammo that you are capable of making.
