    Anybody know if Jim Carstensen is still customizing FL dies to a bushing system?? I haven't seen his ad in PS in awhile. I'm thinking of sending a Lee die to him to convert it.

    He just converted a Redding full-length die to use bushings for my new 6.5 WSM by Longshot Rifles, Chris Matthews.

    What would the difference be between a Redding F/L die conversion (to bushing)and the already made Redding Full Length Bushing die?Just curious!
    Thanks,

    Probably none, Jimmy. But wildcats aren't generally available as a full length bushing die. Even the 7 Dakota...not a wildcat isn't available that way.

    Thanks,Lynn.I should have called the die a Redding "S" type F/L die.I failed to notice that we were talking a wildcat.
