Thanks for referring to your thread. I used to set fl die by slowly turning the die down until the case will chamber. Your method is an eye opener.

Does the WSM offer anything that the Rem mag does not?

I guess I am wondering why the bench guys are using the WSM more than the other..

Re: Why does this have to be so difficult??

Personally I cannot answer as to why the benchrest guys are using the WSM but I would say with a long action and a custom chamber it would offer the ability to seat the bullet out further. Also I believe that the short fat case makes more efficient use of the powder because with a shorter case you should be able to achieve a more uniform burn. It could be something different but this is what I understand to be the advantage of the "short and fat is where it's at" crowd. in a single shot setup fired from a short action they could also be a little more rigid.

Get the Forster precision Bump dies and CoAxe press. The only co. that makes a bump die that I know of. Makes set up a lot less complicated. I have them for my 7mm mag. Works great.
