though I forget the price. The Body Die will allow you to size the body of the case and the shoulder
When the die became available reloaders thought the die sized the body of the case without touching the shoulder of the case. I have no ideal how the die became a 'body' die, I was sizing cases without sizing the neck of the case for many years before the bushing die, and? there was no extra cost beyond using a die I had already paid for.

Bushing dies: A neighbor/disciplined reloader asked me to alter a few dies for him. He has the only dies I know of that are a true bushing dies, and they are old; the dies have to be 55+ years old. The only way to get a set of the dies was to have a rifle built by the smith. My neighbor was his apprentice.
