PLEASE HELP

I got myself in a bind and am looking for a set of 243 ackley imp dies (Redding, Forster or RCBS). Anyone have a set they would part with?
Thanks, Jerry

    If your in a bind, pick up a 243 neck sizer and play with it a little. You fire form any way. Thats what I do with my 257 AI and 243 AI. I do have the improved dies for both but I get better groups without full length sizing. The standard seating die for the 243 will work fine for you. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    257speed, If you haven't thought of it as yet... try the bushing dies, but not the 243 AI, try the 308 AI sizer die, and then you can load any smaller caliber by using the correct bushing!

    308sako, Thanks, I actually wound up running the reamer into my Forster BR seater to open it up and then found a redding bushing neck die. Thanks
