I prefer RCBS brand....Everyone has their preference.
For the .300 WSM, if it is a bolt-action rifle, I would go with a Neck-Sizer die set.
And for the .223, RCBS makes a nice small-base (or SB) die set designed to shrink the base for flawless cycling in AR-style rifles. They come in a black box.
If you have a bolt-action .223 then a neck-sizer die set will also be recommended.
Also, be sure to get you a reloading manual for every brand of bullet you plan on shooting. It tends to make life ALOT easier. I started out with 2 manuals, and now have 3. And I'm sure if I stray from these 3 brands, I'll be buying a 4th manual for whatever brand of bullets I try next.
