I didn't realize how old it was until I hit send
I bought the die set from Defensive Edge. The seater die is a Redding Competition Series Micrometer seater. I couldn't adjust it high enough to seat the bullet, to the COL that DE recommends for the .338 Edge, in the Co-Ax press. The top of the die hits the handle. I tried positioning the handle down slightly so it would clear the die but then I couldn't get a bullet in the case. The Ultra-Mag press solved that problem. Not being familiar with Redding presses I chose the Ultra-Mag but I'm not sure a "lesser" press of similar design wouldn't work just as well. I was able to neck up my .300 RUM brass with very little effort in the Co-Ax press and that makes me wonder if I "needed" the Ultra-Mag press or not.
