    Looking for some place to get some 338 Edge dies. Have asked local sporting goods stores
    and they are unable to help.
    Just a stock set would be great.

    For even cheaper and just as good, get a set of Lee 338 RUM dies and a 375RUM FL sizer of any brand (I got a cheap RCBS one on Ebay).

    You'll use the Lee's for neck sizing/expanding, shoulder bumping, and seating. Take the expander ball out of the 375 and use it as a FL body die.

    I have about $65 or less in my Edge dies and they work very well.

    Got mine from shoot long.com. Redding dies have been great, I have never seen more than .002 of runout.

    I chose the Lee because of the tapered expander. It's much easier on the necks than any of the ones that use a button.

    I also got mine from shoot-long.com
    They have been great. Very little runout. Brian's a good guy to deal with too.

    For a seating die I plan on using a Forster Bench rest in 338 Rum. I might get the seater custom ground for the Berger OTM though I am not sure it really makes a difference.


    Not sure what I'm gonna do for resizing. planning on using the new Bertrand brass so I may just neck size with a lee. A lee collet die in my CO-AX has turning out some concentric ammo.
