I have the Hornady dies in .223 for my LNL press. The sizer seems to be bolt gun only diameter, I had a lot of trouble with FTE's on both my mini-14, my friend's mini and his AR. I went to a small-base RCBS die set and the problem was solved. I have had great luck with other Hornady die sets but I can't recommend this one for autoloading rifles. I like to crimp for my autoloaders so I added a Lee Factory Crimp Die in station five.
