Re: 338 EDGE Dies?

I use a set of Redding dies from Kirby Allen and concentricity is held to .0015 or less, can't get much better than that, also that off Redding T-7 press.
So I would go with Defensive Edge set up.

Re: 338 EDGE Dies?

Use a set of Lee 338RUM for expanding, neck sizing, shoulder bumping, and seating.

Use a gutted 375RUM for full length sizing.

You can get both sets for less than $60.

Lee has a great tapered expander that is real easy on the neck.

I bought the Redding die set from Defensive Edge. I love 'em. Makes very accurate handloads. They even come with the proper neck bushing already installed.
