Thought someone might want to see this.

Lee Precision has issued a recall notice for their full length resizing dies for the .223 Remington. These dies, if adjusted to firmly contact the shell-holder, will create excessive headspace and potentially dangerous conditions. Excessive headspace can cause brass to stretch prematurely at best, or cause head-separation with resultant gas release, at worst. These dies should be replaced immediately.

This applies only to Lee .223 Remington dies marked as Lee-223-C4 on the die body. This does not affect the Lee Collet dies or other .223 dies not marked with the C4 designation. Owners of Lee dies marked as described should call Lee Precision, Inc. at 262-673-3075 or info@leeprecision.com for replacement information.

Sorry guys, I didn't verify this It was a last minute post. The Lee site doesn't reflect any recall. I'm checking for other sources. This was a post on another board. No replies.

i have a set of the recalled dies, I did figure out though if you back the die off a 1/4 turn then they will form brass to spec

well I tried this for another rifle and didnt work.. took me nearly an hour adjusting it then when I thought I had it I accidently sized an un lubed case needless to say it got stuck... out of anger I launched the die out of my water balloon sling shot out towards the other side of my property. And Today I got my new non-recalled die...
