Better Quality Dies?

O.K. I've been reloading for 30+ years, and I have always bought and used RCBS dies and press, But now, the guy who got me interested in this Long Range shootin tells me that there are better dies[ read finish and tolerances]. So, if you would, could you folks direct me to what you believe are the best dies to purchase today? I'm lookin to load for a 300WSM.

Thanks in advance
Mark

    Standard RCBS dies works the neck more than I like on the set I bought. I like the redding S neck sizing dies for what I'm doing. Just got the 001 and 002 under bushings (my loaded cart). You might look at the mic head dies also for seatind depth, I think someone else may elaborate more on that. Probably depends on what effect you what to get in your particular situation. .
