I was wondering what the opinion was on the Forster dies are? I've heard some good things on them and order some, but they are on back order in the 308 set.

    Forster makes excellent production dies, although not in the class of custom matched rifles and dies.

    If a smith cannot make custom dies then they are not building anything for me unless I already have the die made up. The easiest way to make the seating dies for example is to modify an existing Wilson die eg 338 Lapua to the improved version.

    Boss-

    I was curious about this. I have come up with a wildcat, it is basically a shortened and AI 7mm SAUM. My thoughts / question is could I get a Redding competition seating die and just run my chamber reamer in there to cut the shoulder bcak to 40'? Then I suppose that I would have to cut the body down to length as well. Do you think that this would work or do you have any other suggestions?
