The trimmer will not stay adjusted and the scale will not measure 46.0 gr. it will show 45.9 or 46.1 no matter how may times I try ( I'm using a trickler not a powder measure ). The Hornady die steel rusts as soon as you clean them up , Poor polishing = rough sizing and easy rusting. Hornady just sucks!
* if the dies are rusting that fast, try washing your hands with hot soapy water, and then use a good skin loation. They make some stuff to counter act the acids in your skin, but who does I'm not sure. I have a generic can of it, and it does work well.

* if you think Forster's dies are high priced then price Redding dies. Now that's a seriously over priced die.

* look for a Wilson case trimmer. Simply the best

* Can't help you with the scale. I use a Pact electronic scale and an RCBS trickeler. I throw powder with either a Lyman #55 or a Harrell, but still have to trickel with long grained powders

Agree with Tricky...Reddings are overpriced IMO..esp since they copied Forsters dies in the 1st place.

Re: Reloading Die Brand?

Started out with rcbs then tried a hornady and quickly sold it for a redding and now I have found forster and will be replacing all others for the Forster dies. They are awesome.
