What kind of dies are you using for your edge and how much do they cost?
Thanks for looking
I'm also in the same boat. I have been searching on that and nothing.
I think I'm going to use a 338 RUM set. Not the best way to go about it but its a way.
I know RCBS makes them but I don't know the price.
Part Number: 56871 .338-300 Remington Ultra Mag ⑧ Group(G)
Doing a search I found these links but there's an error when I click on them:
We use Redding FL sizer dies obtained from Shawn at Defensive Edge. Not sure what the current cost is though. Give Shawn a call at 208-687-2659 and he'll get you squared away.
Thanks guys for the reply I think i've read on this forum were folks use a redding .338 die and drill it out somehow. Maybe I'm all wrong someone tell me if this is not so.
Redding 338-300 Ultra mag. FL custom die set. $145. Midway, Graf & sons , Etc.gun)
Those two places were the first ones I looked; at the time the did not have anything!
Call Redding direct. They'll send 1 if they have it or they'll make you 1 promptly.gun)
Whenever I have a rifle built I always have the dies made from the reamers that way they are perfect---just food for thought... I also have all of my reamers except for a few and Speedy has those.
I can see that that would work perfectly for a seater die, but what about the sizing die?
A sizing die needs to size a piece of brass to be smaller than the chamber. How can your chamber reamer cut smaller dimensions than the chamber?
I keep the 338 set in stock. They are a match die set, a FL bushing die with a .364" bushing, 30 to 338 tapered expander and micrometer seating die. This set is expensive at $265.00 but they are the best ones I have used.
You have a message on your answering machine , with my number . Talk to you later
The roughing reamer is used for the sizing die.
