Those small base dies are used with semi-autos that have to have the case full length resized in order for the action to operate and feed properly. You can use them but if you full length resize your brass all the time you will just overwork and wear it out faster is all and have to trim it more often..After you initially load and fire your brass you should be able to get by with just a neck sizer or just size your brass so the neck get sized down 1/4 to 1/2 way to the shoulder to be able to hold your bullet. You will then have brass that is fireformed to that particular rifle and may or may not work in any other rifle depending on chamber differances.Dies have standerdized threads and any of them will work in your press,,Walt
