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.

Re: Die choice

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.

Re: Die choice

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.

Re: Die choice

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