    Redding Type S Bushing 3-Die Neck Sizer Set 30-378 Weatherby Mag

    Seems the micrometer is the only thing missing, lot cheaper than I paid for the micrometer dies for the 7mag.

    I'm pretty partial to the RCBS Gold Medal march Dies, especially the bullet seater die with the front drop in window and micromenter head.

    Do they make these dies in .338-378Wby though? I checked Forster and RCBS and neither make competition style dies. And Forster makes none at all.

    I bet if you contacted RCBS directly in California they would make a set up if they don't have them commercially available.

    with the Redding S type set I doubt you'd ever look for a different die at all
