Ruger M77 hawkeye, just getting into reloading and long range hunting. I have several rifles and have always hunted and shoot as much as I can,and have made some long shots hunting. Some over 450 yds but i want to take the guess work out and stop holding over what I'm shooting

For a straight factory rig, I'd go with a lee collet neck sizing set.

I don't think they make a Lee Collet in 264 win mag. Since they don't then the best dies would be the Redding competition bushing neck sizer, Redding body die and Redding competition seater

MidwayUSA - Redding Competition Bushing 3-Die Neck Sizer Set 264 Winchester Magnum

kinda expensive though!!!

A cheaper solution would be to get the regular Redding full length sizer with the expander ball

MidwayUSA - Redding Full Length Sizer Die 264 Winchester Magnum

and the regular seater

MidwayUSA - Redding Seater Die 264 Winchester Magnum

much much cheaper but you have to deal with the expander ball, more runout and lube in the neck.

Not a whole lot of choices for the 264 win mag.

You can contact Lee Custom services. They can make you a collet neck die. I am having them make me one for my .300 ultra mag

I recomend the Collet neck size die, Redding body die for when you need to full length size, and the Redding Comp. seater.
