We have found that some military surplus rifles can have barrel groove diameters ranging from .308 inch to .311 inch. The 7.62 x 39 Pacesetter die set includes an expander suitable for both .308 inch and .311 inch bullets. 

Rifles chambered for the 7.62 x54R can also be found with either bore diameter. We include only the .308 inch decapper/expander with this die set because it can be used with both diameter bullets. If you have a rifle with the larger bore diameter you can order the decapper/expander from the .303 British Pacesetter die set, part #SE2358.

32 H&R Magnum commonly uses .311 but the sizing die will size the case enough to hold .308 bullets. It would be necessary to purchase an additional expander plug and reduce it's size to .308. This can be done using a drill press and emery cloth, or for $10.00 plus the cost of the new expander, we would do it for you.
