WTB-338 Lapua Redding Match Type S 3 Die set**Found**

I'm looking to purchase a Redding Match Type S- 3 die set in 338 Lapua with a Competition bullet seater, and the Type S bushing neck and the body die.

Let me know what you have of either.

Thanks

Not sure if you are looking for a used set or just a set in-stock somewhere (sad times, for sure).

Sinclair shows them as in-stock. I have these sets in 5 different cartridges now (including 338LM) and couldn't be happier.

Good luck.

Would you believe I just saw that minutes before you sent that, so I ordered them, but thanks very much!

Nice! Funny how happy we are to send money away, just because we can actually get what we want!!

I've had 50gr SBK's on backorder for three months. These mythical relics grow in value in my mind every day. . . When (if) I ever get them I may not be able to bring myself to shoot them!

Enjoy!

So I need a measurement of a loaded round for the actual bushing to order.

What measurement are you getting with Lapua brass on a loaded round?

Thanks

Using Lapua brass, the .366 bushing works for me. It sizes the neck just enough to have some friction on the expander on the upstroke. I also have a .367 (too big) and a .365 (good insurance). My experience with my other sets (crappier brass) is that there is nothing more annoying than a thin neck case that I can't squeeze enough, getting no bullet tension.

How much spring back are you accounting for using the .366 bushing? I like at least .002-.003 neck tension so during recoil in the magazine box the bullets will stay put.

Thanks
