from personal expericne which is something i dont have a lot of but me and my uncle reload our bullets and we recently tried hornandy and we have noticed a diffrence not huge but a small diffrence . also i currently hunt with a 7mm-08 im 14 years old my dad wants to buy me a .270 which is basically the same thing. does anyone have any recommendasions?
A .270 Winchester and a 7-08 are completely different animals! One case is a half inch longer than the other! Other than that I like the .270, and shot one for many years. But I think a .280 Remington is a better round due to bullet selection alone. Yet I would not trade either one for a good 30-06. Face it a 30-06 will kill just about anything south of the Canadian border with a properly placed shot.
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!
I'll be the very first person to tell you all that a standard Forster seater will load bullets just as strait as their micrometer die seven days a week and twice on Sunday! I also suspect the the Redding seater is in the same boat.
Currently using Lee dies for most pistol and RCBS for most rifle. I have a few RCBS pistol die sets and a Forster rifle die set. Not opposed to trying Redding or Hornady. I'd say I'll definitely try Redding at some point, probably Hornady too. I love Hornady Bullets.
