Which Dies for Reloading a 300 RUM

Hi all,

I am not new here just a long time lurker.

I just picked up a 300 RUM and need to start reloading for it. I have been reloading my .270 Win, .220 Swift and .223/5.56 for quite a few years and always used RCBS dies.

If you were to buy new dies for a .300 RUM which ones would you get? Brand, Full length sizing die, or Neck sizing die?

I have the RCBS Competition Seating Die with caliper and really like that feature, so what’s your favorite brand and model?

Thanks,
FF

I use the forster ultra, for 300 rum. I like the forster better than the standard rcbs dies I'm using on other calibers...

I'm ordering redding type S dies for my next rifle (260rem), we'll see how they are.

The Redding Type S FL Bushing die and Comp Seater. I have the Type S Neck Bushing die and body die, but if I ahd to do it again I would go with the FL because I boddy size after each firing, for consistancy, and they need it.

Using bushing dies means turning necks.

+1 on the Redding Type S FL and Comp Seater. I just ordered a set a few days ago for this caliber after reading some great reviews on them. I have been using one of their Competition Seaters for a few years and it's an awesome seating die. This will be my first Type S FL die so looking forward to trying that out as well. I haven't heard that you have to turn necks though. Is that really the case???

The reddings are the best and I own them but they are very proud of them. Lately I have been going with Forester with the ultra comp seating die which is just like the redding and half the price.

Yeah, I use the Forster for my 308 and they're good dies. I did notice that their competition seater doesn't have the same precision of adjustment. If you need to seat a bullet .007 deeper, with the Redding you turn the mic .007 and it's spot on. With the Forster, it usually takes two or three adjustments to get it right. It's definately not as precise. Just my opinion.
