Forster Bench rest Ultra or Redding Competition seating die
Has anyone had problems with the tips of VLD bullets hitting the top of the die before the ogive with the Forster Bench rest Ultra dies? I was trying to compare the Redding Competition seating die to the Forster Bench rest Ultra. The Forster instructions do mention that it may require a "custom" seating stem for some bullets. The redding die picture appears to show a deeper hole in the stem. The only other major difference I noticed was price.
I'm trying to decide which to get as I just started measuring runout and I'm good up to the point I seat with my current die. I know that one problem with the current die is the VLD type bullet tips are bottoming in the stem before there is ogive contact. I have read of people modifying their dies with drill presses, etc. but that's not a good option for me.
