The only step you are adding is belling the case. Almost all seating dies can be set to remove the bell and if you are dropping powder on a press instead of by hand you can bell it case then.
It would also probably help with the stability issue you are having.
Giving them "all" up would be fairly easy since these sre the sum total of all I've ever bought.
Not everyone has progressive reloading presses. Adding yet ANOTHER die into the mix just for one single projectile that hasnt even shown a willingness to work properly isn't something I'm keen on.
Then having to buy a new set of dies just so i can get a specific expander ball...and do I then size normally, trim, chamfer/deburr, then run it through the sizing die again this time with the x39 expander ball? The projectile won't drop straight through the neck if it's that far oversized?
