    Does anyone have any dies for this caliber or know where I can get a set at a reasonable price.

    Thanks,

    I would check with the guys in the PA 1000 yard club, starting with Mark King. He has a lot of odd ball stuff and might know. Other than that, custom dies from Neil Jones and will not be cheap.

    Google their website and contact them.

    Might actually be cheaper to to a rechamber to standard 6.5-300 wthby and they have dies readily available for that one.

    It's my understanding from research that they are the same caliber. But thanks for the other info.

    Then contact Mark, he might have the dies in stock.

    Mark King Rifles

    I would send him a fired case to measure against if he is not sure.
