Re: Reloading Die Brand?

I've probably got twenty die sets in one caliber or another, and with bottle neck cases I prefer Forster by a wide margin. I do own three or four Redding die sets, and so far they are OK, but the Forster is better. For my revolvers I like Lyman dies, but I'm sure the others are fine as well. I just like the way the sizer works with the Lyman slightly better as well as their crimp. I also use several sets of Wilson dies, and one custom built die that's even better than the Wilsons

I use a lot of Wilson products. I live 15 miles from them.

I reload about 28 rifle calibers and most of my dies are RCBS - exclusively for hunting firearms. But in the last 12 years, all my dies are Redding compeition sets. Their quality beats RCBS hands down.

Re: Reloading Die Brand?

I'm new to LR so I've continued to buy the Lee dies I've used for Cowboy Action and other competitive shooting sports... However, I've come to realize that out to a certain point Lee Dies are fine - but if you want to be competitive buy Forester.

Re: Reloading Die Brand?

I started with RCBS years ago and a few years back I started buying Redding with Comp Seater, then went to Redding type S bushing dies and now I am ordering some Hornady New Dimension match grade dies for a couple of wildcats since Redding doesn't make Comp dies for wildcats.

That said, I voted Hornady since most of my future rifles will likely be some wildcat. However, I have been very pleased Redding.
