    I am usinng a standard Redding seating die for my Creedmoore and cant find a vld seater plug or a top with micro adjust. Does any one know of one or do you guys think I would be better served by just getting one of the better seating dies with a sleeve like the Windden Gunworks model. I am loading hybrids now but want to switch to the vld before the hunts start.

    Save yourself some primers, powder and bullets and buy the Wilson Seating die. It will give you better runout than your Redding die and will work with VLD bullets the way it comes. If you have access to your chamber reamer, then have your rifle smith ream a Wilson 6.5 blank to match your chamber. That will be hard to beat for accuracy.
