    I am building either a 264 Wm or a 26 Nosler who makes the best dies probably leaning toward the 264 I am aware that no one probably makes dies for the 26 nosler yet but I assume whoever makes the best dies in general would probably make really good dies for the nosler eventually

    Well...Seeing as to how the .26 Nosler hasn't even been released yet, I don't see much to compare with.

    But if you want to know who makes the best dies, in general...Well, I like (and use) both Redding and RCBS dies.

    I am aware the nosler was just released I guess I should have worded that one a little better so I edited my question

    I have loaded good ammunition with a lot of different brands of dies but I think the gold star goes to Redding. BTW, I think the 264Win is, from my experience, a cartridge that needs to be neck sized, although this varies from one chamber to another.

    I would send John Whidden a print of your reamer and have him make you a set of custom dies. It will run you a little over $200 and turn around is good.
