The outside on many dies is chrome Moly for strength. The carbide is the
stretching and sizing part that takes a lot of pressure. It might, haven't
torn down mine, be the pressing die inside the bullet press die.

According to Clark Magnuson :

I don't know, since I have never dealt with them.

But how much of *any* carbide die set is carbide? It is
normally a fairly short ring at the bottom end of the dies. The rest is
plain steel. (I would not want to pay for the ground threads needed in
an *all* carbide die. :-)

And from the description following your link, these also have
carbide expander balls as part of the sizing die.

Enjoy,
DoN.

I seem to recall seeing a cross-section of the dies showing the carbide
ring where the case goes in (where the force is applied, for the most
part) and maybe the button. Check the Blue Press, perhaps, or call 'em.
Every time I've called, the person answering the phone has every answer
I can throw at them.

Straight wall cartridges simply have a carbide ring inserted in the
die mouth.

Good question indeed on bottle neck dies
