7mm Rem Mag Dies, which Ones???

I have the below components and wanted your professional opinions on reloading dies. I have researched several types of dies and the pro's and cons of each. But am not sure what is best. I plan on shooting out to 1,000 yds for animals, maybe more on paper/steel. Thanks again for all your knowledge and assistance. I would prefer a matched die set for body, micro bullet seating, and neck sizing.

What should I use:
Full Length or Collet
Lee Collet die
Larry Willis Dies
Forester dies
Competition dies
Redding Body Die
Bullet Seater???

Components:
Caliber: 7mm Rem Mag
Action: Stiller Tac 300
Barrel: 26" Obermeyer 1 : 8.75
Bullet: Berger 168 gr. Hunting VLD’s
Powder: H-1000
Starting load of 69 grs. and will work up till I see pressure signs or around 3,000 fps, which ever comes first.

    Nothing wrong with starting out using Lee dies..including the collet die and should or if the need arises that you need something "better".....you can oil up the Lee's and pack them away for another day.

    Why have you not listed RCBS?

    get a competition die and a full length size die.

    don't mess with neck sizing. I did in my 308 and had a lot of problems
