Redding or RCBS dies

I have been reloading for several years and would like to get a good set of dies to improve my reloads. I am looking to cut down on the chance that the reloads have runout and uneven neck tension. I know neck wall thickness plays a part and I plan on culling the brass that has that problem. So what set of dies would you get? RCBS Gold Medal or Redding competition? Thanks for any help you can give me.

    I'll also vote for Forster - you got a problem... you got no problem.

    Many die companies (whose name begins with RCBS) say that if your chamber is out of spec (and you'd be suprised how often that happens), it's not their problem.

    But you have a problem with Foster, cuz YOUR chamber is out of spec, you got no problem... they will do what is necessary to make it work.

    I'll never buy RCBS again.

    I needed a small pin to replace a lost part. They charged my several dollars plus $5 shipping for a .10 part. "Get me once shame on me!"

    Thanks for the link Catshooter. It helped alot. I haven't had any problems with my current Hornady or RCBS dies but they are all older issue. I think the Redding dies will be on my bench before long. I have a 300WSM in Rem 700XCR and two 270WSM,(one a Kimber and the other a Sako 75) that will take up some of my spare time loading for.
