RCBS 9mm TC seater FAR ?

RCBS carries two 9mm taper crimp / seater dies. One has the letters FAR at the end & lists for $14 more. Anyone know the difference between them?

9 mm F.A.R. (Fast, Accurate, Reliable) is a different cartridge from 9mm Luger. It has a longer case and COL that is slightly longer than the .38 Super. The 9 mm F.A.R. case is almost two tenths of an inch longer than the 9 mm Luger case, which is why the crimp die has to be about that much longer inside.
