Which Dies for a 243AI?

I am going to be purchasing a 243AI in the very near future and would like to know which dies I should be looking to get.

Thanks

I like Redding dies personaly , the type S bushing dies are nice.
I've also had good luck with the Lee collet dies , its nice not having to lube cases and they don't cause any neck streching.

If at all possible I use Forster compseaters , the adjustments are very crisp and accurate and they load strait ammo as well

The Lee collet dies are working for me in many calibers and as James said , not having to lube ( or clean off the lube ) is a great deal . Minimal working of the brass is a plus as well . Have gotten 7 or 8 good reloads without needing to bump the shoulder back . At that point I use a Reddinng body die and shove it back 1 to 1.5 thou .


The Redding competition seater with the micrometer is what I use for all the calibers that I load . Along with James Jones advice on the Forsters I have heard of many tout them ads their seater of choice

I was looking at forster also but they must custom make the seater die and I must provide the reamer. Also it takes 20-25 weeks to complete the custom die. Has anyone used Wilson seater die?

Thanks for the replies.

Redding and Wilson hand dies are great.

You'd be happy with both !
