Which custom dies? CH4D isnt getting it done

What other options are out there? I know hornady and redding do custom dies. Any reviews on either? I currently use all RCBS stuff with a rock chucker press. I'll go as far as buying a different press if I have to!

I sent 4 fired cases to CH4D in January to have customs made for my 338/408ct improved. I STILL have not received my dies and I haven't been able to contact them either. I've called multiple times and left a few messages and still nothing.

I guess I'll eat those cases that are there which isn't a big deal but the principal is they are $2 or $3 a pop(408CT parent case) and I don't have but a couple more fired cases. I can use a similar set of dies to get it close enough to fire form but I'de rather not. I've got plenty cheytac brass just no dies. I bought the rifle and it came with loaded rounds and some fired cases. There were no dies in the beginning I take it they were fire formed and just neck sized by the builder. But I got the rifle for a less than you can buy the action and trigger for so I can't complain about not having dies. I also received 100peices of CT brass, and 100 265gr hensons too so I got a deal.

I have heard these guys to a great job at a reasonable time frame Whidden Gunworks

when I had some custom dies mad by ch4d they took 8-10 months and i don't like how light my neck tension is with them so i had to modify a bushing die so i can get a bit more neck tension. needless to say i won't use them again.

If you call CH between 1-3pm, you will talk to Beth. CH is a VERY small operation due to the threat of Obamacare, and they are backlogged with work.
