Re: Best seating die?
I have all three (Redding, Forster, and Hornady)... the Redding and Forster are equal in quality... both are outstanding.
My Redding 300WM Competition won't go back in the green box once it has been adjusted (applies to all the long Redding Comp seater dies). I called Redding, and they said that they are "... aware of it". [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
Also... Redding will NOT make a competition seater in special calibers, even if they do make other dies in that caliber.
Forster WILL make special "Ultra" seaters for any caliber that is in their catalogue! I have one for .218 BEE [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
The Hornady is good, but not excellent... but at about $20 a SET (seater and FL sizer) that's a hell of a deal.
Also, because of the way the Hornady is designed, if you have a weird wildcat that Redding or Forster doesn't make, the Hornady seater will seat the bullets.
