Re: .338 edge die ???

Whenever I have a rifle built I always have the dies made from the reamers that way they are perfect---just food for thought... I also have all of my reamers except for a few and Speedy has those.

I can see that that would work perfectly for a seater die, but what about the sizing die?

A sizing die needs to size a piece of brass to be smaller than the chamber. How can your chamber reamer cut smaller dimensions than the chamber?

Re: .338 edge die ???

I keep the 338 set in stock. They are a match die set, a FL bushing die with a .364" bushing, 30 to 338 tapered expander and micrometer seating die. This set is expensive at $265.00 but they are the best ones I have used.

The roughing reamer is used for the sizing die.
