    Well I have drug my feet once again . Gun will be finished in a week and I have yet to get reloading dies. Can anyone help me out. Do you have dies foe a 338 lapua improved w/ 40 degree shoulders. Pacific tool siad the reemer we used is a very common one and there are dies out there for it. I can get a print to make sure we are on track. Or who can build me some in a short time period ? Thanks Plott Hound

    My suggestion, if no one here has one they are willing to part with, would be to contact Redding and order a Full Length Type S Bushing sizing die, don't forget a couple of bushings. Then go on line where ever you want and order a Forster 338 lapua Micrometer Seating die, take it apart and have your smith open up the sleeve using your chamber reamer.
