I think I am getting a good handle on this. I would like to hear what all of you are using for dies. Also, what reamer specs did you go with?

I appreciate all the imput and information all you gents have posted.

Re: more on 260 AI

I have several sets of dies. The first set I got was from Pacific Tool & Die back in 1979. I've bought probably 10 sets from RCBS over the years for rifles I built. I am using a custom Lee collet die for neck sizing now and a Redding competition seating die. Redding announced they were going to start carrying the .260 AI as a regular stock item (I think category II) at the SHOT show this year. Probably won't see them for a month or two. You'll need a full length .260 AI size die and a regular .260 Remington full length size die if you want to size .308 brass down to .260 AI.

I use the redding S type bushing dies with a SAAMI spec chamber. Seems to be working out OK so far. Here are some of my initial loads and corresponding target from last weekend.
