    I'm using a set of Lee Pacesetter 338RUM and a gutted RCBS 375RUM FL die.

    I'd recommend finding something similar.

    Look for something with a tapered expander like the Lee. It makes sizing 300RUM brass very easy.

    I anneal and FL size every couple firings. My chamber is set so that a FL size isn't working the brass very much.

    I also FL size after expanding the neck of fresh brass. Sometimes while expanding, the shoulder bulges over the body. The Lee tapered expander helps but doesn't eliminate it. A quick trip through the FL die cures everything.

    +1 I have used RCBS for a long time and I decided to try a Forester Competition seater die and boy is it nice. I purchased shawns reloading video and he recomended Redding type s sizer die with bushings and it feels like driving a brand new car compared to my RCBS dies . I would go ahead and save for the redding and you will be glad that you did if you want to save a little money and still have quality then see what Forester .338 Edge dies will cost . just my op.
