    I can't imagine a standard die with a decap stem, size ball and pin not having problems when it hits that step.

    Not counting reduced case capacity and concerns about separation and bullet length.

    Just does not seem worth it to me save 3 cents on brass cost, and have additional issues that you don't have in standard brass.

    I use a universal decapping die, it wouldn't even notice. And I don't think the expander on my sizing die goes down that far into the brass.
    When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.
