338 Edge Dies

Looking for some place to get some 338 Edge dies. Have asked local sporting goods stores
and they are unable to help.
Just a stock set would be great.

    For the best go to the source:

    Defensive Edge Products

    For less expensive try:

    In Stock 338 Edge Dies Redding Custom 2-Die Set 338/300 Ultra

    For even cheaper and just as good, get a set of Lee 338 RUM dies and a 375RUM FL sizer of any brand (I got a cheap RCBS one on Ebay).

    You'll use the Lee's for neck sizing/expanding, shoulder bumping, and seating. Take the expander ball out of the 375 and use it as a FL body die.

    I have about $65 or less in my Edge dies and they work very well.

    Same hear but with hornady dies. Works great, much cheeper and easier to find.

    Got mine from shoot long.com. Redding dies have been great, I have never seen more than .002 of runout.

    I chose the Lee because of the tapered expander. It's much easier on the necks than any of the ones that use a button.
