If you order a Re-De- Capper for a cartridge longer than 2.6 inches, it will be assembled with a longer primer seating stem and a longer de-capping rod.  If you then wish to convert your tool to cartridge for which the long rods are not available, say 32-40, you will need to order a "short seating stem" You can use a tool set-up for 45 x 3 1/4 to prime and de-prime 45-70's but we do sell the long, short and large or small primer seating stems separately

​Specify Long/large or short/large

The short/ small seating stem is sold in the Primer Size Conversion Kit above
