Re: Hornady Dies

I have used dies from about every major maker currently out there and I think the Hornady Dies are certainly the best of "The Rest" they don't carry the price tag that the Redding and Forster dies do but to me they are head and shoulders above the RCBS and Lee offerings.

I have become pretty partial to Forster's dies because I like their seater die slightly better than the Redding and their bushing bump die is outstanding. The two of them fill 90% or more of my typical reloading needs.

Re: Hornady Dies

I've got quite a few sets and have found they make really straight ammo. They make it as straight as my forester BR dies. Like one of the above posters mentioned.....if you are going to load alot of pointed tip bullets like bt's or accubonds it might be a real good investment (about $12 to get the amax seater cup).
My only complaint is that the last few sets seem to really work the brass alot. If loading for a pump or semi auto I guess this is ok but I would like it if they didn't work the neck and body quite so much.
Other than that the sizing stem and eliptical expander are really wonderful and I consider them my first choice in dies if not spending the bigger bucks for compettition type dies.
