Ever use a custom FL die?

I've seen a couple places where you can buy a custom FL die made from a fired case.

Has anyone done this? Does is give you perfect shoulder bump?


Do you just set it up to size to the base of the case?


Thanks to all who reply!

I have several sets of the Harrels dies (6BR and 30BR). They are OK, but I'm not really fully satisfied with the shoulder bump with the 30BR. I measure with a Redding Instant Indicator, and find the shoulders to vary .001-.003". Sometimes in a match, The shoulder is too far out to put the bolt down with much effort. I sent the first one back a while ago, and have not yet decided whether the new one is OK. My Harrels 6BR F/L die does not have this problem.

I am thinking about Whidden Gunworks or Neil Jones F/L dies. Both are reputed to be very good.

Will you be running any Redding group buys again?
