Then I bought a set from Defensive Edge and it is perfect... Guess I learned that lesson the hard way, buy good, quality dies
Redding dies are good dies. .007 run-out means something is seriously wrong you may have got a bad set.
That said Defense edge are a known quantity (excellent) and for 100/die it is nice to have a turn key setup. I use a Co-AX and want the micrometer adjustment and the redding simply wont fit (more on this later) So I went with a .300 RUM bushing die my smith opened up to accept the proper bushing and just called Forster the tech guy is going to have the machinist look into opening up a 300 rum die to work with .338.
Also there is a new version of the CO-AX out that will take the taller seating dies and for 80 bucks + return shipping Forster will "upgrade" your old press.
