I have RCBS dies for 9mm. I bought the Hornady lock rings.

I set the seating/sizer die to my own appropriate specs and locked the die with the lock ring.

Can I muscle the locked die off the press to hold the settings without damaging it?

I would then just crew the die back in when I want to use it and it will be set up for what I want to do.

I know I could buy the LNL collet that fits onto the press mouth but right now I am thinking about just unscrewing the die out of the press.

Other ideas?
Just pop the die loose with a wrench on the locked lockring and spin it out.

After setting, I rarely tighten mine in again more than by hand.

No, if tight, they do not shift.
