Re: Reloading Die Brand?

Like most handloaders, I've tried them all, and still have many brands: RCBS, Redding, Dillion, Lee, Forster...

I'm kinda settled on Redding for rifle(the comp. seating die is the sh!t) and Dillion for handgun.

Re: Reloading Die Brand?

I'm making the switch to custom dies and no turn necks based off my chambers/reamers & reloading following the principals of bench rest shooting with about .001 more than BR. Closer than SAAMI/hunting but a little less than BR tight chamber, I don't want any pulls and powder mess nor tight bolts or no closures. Long range bug hole's is my goal.

Presently working up 7 Dakota loads with a .311 no turn neck, smithed and blueprinted Mod.70 SS action by Freudenberg, Lilja HV SS 1:9 27". Newlon precision dies, heat treated and nitride plated, reamers by JGS.

Previously using Competition Redding, RCBS and Benchrest Forster's, they will be going up for sale as the customs replace them.

Well, that costly die set in a pretty wood box will certainly assemble useable ammo and you can be sure the micrometer head will change seating depth as it should; RCBS would never have been able to sell the second production run if not. But, if those dies will actually load ammuniton any more 'accurately' than a conventional die set is the real question. On average, that seems to be a toss up. Good luck!

well loaded 40 round's sat. and wow so nice did a ladder load from 3.240 to 3.330 . 3 round's each size and zeroed the mic. at 3.240 and then just put it +.010 and it worked perfectly no variation in length at all . very happy with the RCBS Competition set . But I did not get a wood box .
