you dont "need" a special die for decapping...

however a universal decapping die is great for just punching primers out before tumbling - especially for those of us who wet tumble. that way the pins and cleaning solution can scrub that carbon out of the primer pocket for you.


and since its just an open body die with a decap pin in there.... you can run dirty brass through it without worrying about scratching up your sizing die body with a piece of grit.
