Redding Match Dies - Which ones?
I've been sittin' here, switching between the Forum and the Redding website. The debate I'm having with myself is; I'm wanting to get a set of "good" dies (not that my trusty RCBS ones are "bad") for the custom 6mmAI I'm planning to have built this coming year. This rifle will be based on a Rem. 700 action w/all the goodies, a Hvy. sporter top-brand barrel, etc., for 1,000-yd groundhog hunting.
Anyways, back to the dies. In Redding's website, I noticed they build their Type-S Match dies in both neck-size only AND full-length, as well. While one would normally not even consider full-length dies for such a gun or type of shooting, I got to thinking, "why not?". The FL match dies are bushing-type dies, they handle re-sizing the necks in exactly the same manner as the neck-sizer dies do, and the set costs about $25 less at Midway. I personnally can't see where the neck-size only die set would be any better and you could bump the shoulders & do a full-length resize anytime you needed to... What do you guys think about this? While I am quite accustomed to "standard" reloading, this will be my first crack at the long-range, serious stuff so I would appreciate any help you could offer. Thanks in advance
