Our reamer is throated for the 180's-190's, most guys opt for the longer box. I should have clarified that.

    Yes, all I have ran through the ones I built are 180 Berger VLD's and 180 Hybrids. With my reamer the rear bearing surface is at the neck / shoulder junction when the
    O-give is touching the lands.

    Anyone thinking about adding the 35 degree shoulder to the 7mm 300wm. Not sure what your wanting out of the dies, kinda nice that you can get em for like 75.00 new.

    I really like just using the Redding bushing dies for a 300 win and changing the neck bushing. Gives me lots of easy options. That's why I didn't mess with the shoulder.

    Jeff, do you step it down with a single bushing or with multiple?

    I take about .010" or so steps to keep the necks straight. It is over kill but I have been using 3 bushings.

    thanks for the info. i'm having one built right now. its already at the smith along with the new barrel just waiting my turn. i was about to buy dies brass and bullets and i planned to use the redding bushing die so i just wanted to see. the smith i'm using said his reamer was spec'd off of norma brass. have you used any norma in yours?
