I don't want to be a wise guy but if you get on the Br site they solve that problem with a Hood Press ($300) it's set up for threaded and arbor dies also Sinclair makes a press stand fits Reddding,RCBS,Hornady etc press that allows for use at range. Harrell make a clamp on press that works for range use.
Alot of BR shooter are using a threaded SB 6ppc die for sizing then arbor for seating. Only reason I started using arbor die was got into BR shooting other wise more than likely be using a threaded die.
Wilson use to make FL sizing die and took a pretty good arbor press for sizing B-Square use to sell one some use a press that seats bearing.
Problem with the Wilson is you have to FL at some point so threaded press is needed so takes a extra investment in reloading and I'm sure if you check with some of the gunsmith that post here their rifle accuracy may not be with Wilson dies.
I just got a Redding Comp seater for the 243AI so far groups are the same but the die was almost $100 better be good I'm still in ther learning stage.
