Re: best bullet seating die?

I did an experiment with seaters a few years ago ,I replaced most of my standard seaters with competition type seaters from Redding ,Forster and wilson. to make a long story short if your run-out coming off your sizing die is .001 a competition type seater will keep it at .001,if your brass run-out is .005 it will seat it at .005 and so on . a competition seater will not make up for a bad sizing job but wont make it worse. On the other hand if you are truely getting .001 run-out from your brass and .012 on loaded ammo you are using a standard seater that is no more than a trash can liner and standard sizing dies that are giving you way too much neck tension, buy some good dies and sleep much better.
