Lee Deluxe Die set.

You get FL sizer, Collet neck sizer, and seater. Best dies around for the money.

If you want to spend more get the Lee Deluxe Die set and a Redding Competition Micrometer seater.

If I were to do it all again...

Lee Collett sizer
Forster Seater
Redding Body Die

That's pretty much where I ended up.

" are the competition dies worth the 100 bucks or can i just use the lee?"

No. Certainly not at your level of experience. They would be a total waste because "common" dies are, in fact, quite good. And Lee's are as good as any CONVENTIONAL dies.

MAYBE, in 5-10 years, you will want to check out what Mr. LRHWAL suggests or, maybe, you will simply choose to stick with your originals! Very few shooters ever obtain enough accuracy or skill to use those excellant sophisticaled dies to any noticeable advantage in a .300 mag.

isu600rr,
I certainly would not put that much in to them. I use Hornady Custom Grade New Dimension Dies and I get .3's out of my stock Savage 112BVSS with 180gn NBT's and 180gn SMK's. JohnnyK.

For the seater, you can substitute a Redding Competition or even the RCBS Competition seater (I like 'em but not many do).

If you want to crimp, add the Lee Factory Crimp Die which is cheap and foolproof.

Yes, that's what I use and it is awesome. I have Forsters in other calibers. The Forster can be had without the micrometer top, but it is still an "in-line" type design and that version it is lest spendy. As I recall around $38-40.
