6.5x284 dies

I'm new to this whole forum process so forgive me if I go about it wrong or if this topic has been beat to death and I didn't see it but I'm looking for a set of 6.5x284 Norma dies any can't find any. Anywhere. I was wondering if I should adjust my aim and go a different road or if anyone knew where to get any. Thanks in advance

    Check out Forster. I bought the micro seater, neck, and full length dies awhile back. I haven't used them yet. Waiting for Forster single stage press to come and rifle to be done.

    The seating die is a Wilson made with your reamer.

    You will want bushing dies. I use .293 to .296 bushings. Again I use the Wilson Bushing size dies the most. The Forsters are great. I also have Redding Full Length bushing dies. Lapua Brass is great and its annealed when you get it.

    Check the seating stem of your die to see where on the bullet it is touching. Most threaded dies are not set up for VLD bullets and push from the nose. This is not the best for concentricity.

    Throw away the size die stem button. I use a Sinclair expander die and mandrel for cases I drop and dent the neck.

    Yeah I'm sure they're great but I'm not a competition guy I'm just a hunter and a recreational shooter so the super high end stuff is way better than I need it to be. And I've checked everywhere I know of an they seem to be out of stock. Thank ya though

    There is a group buy for Redding equipment over at the snipers hide. You will get a considerable discount. Check it out.

    I take that back. The Forster dies I bought were returned as they were stamped 6.5x284 win. I replaced them with Redding as they have Norma stamped on them. I apologize for my impulse post.
