Default Lyman die

Everyone was sold out of the Lee die set for .32-20, so I reluctantly ordered a Lyman.
It has the "M" die, the flaring expander in it, tuliped the cases I tried get ready to load so much they would not go in the seating die, or there was no flare at all.
I took the expander out and put it under my little digital microscope.
I estimate the angle was 80' or more, I chucked it up and cut it to 20' about the same as the Lee universal flaring die, works ok now.
Just another case of Lee tools being engineered rather than just developed.
Next die set I need , I shall wait for a Lee.
