    Hey motrapper

    I am waiting on a rebarrel to 338RUM now and have some of the dies and waiting on one other. I went with the MidwayUSA - Redding Competition Bushing Neck Sizer Die 338 Remington Ultra Magnum , a MidwayUSA - Redding Body Die 338 Remington Ultra Magnum and a MidwayUSA - Redding Competition Seater Die 338 Remington Ultra Magnum . Still waiting on the neck sizer but did get the seater so I could seat some dummies for the gunsmith to set throat length.

    Normally I neck size with a Lee Collet but I am going to try the Redding Bushing Die one more time to see if I can keep runout down.

    Also sent off for a box of MidwayUSA - Barnes Tipped Triple Shock X-Bullets 338 Caliber (338 Diameter) 225 Grain Spitzer Boat Tail Box of 50 . I always liked the Triple Shocks and these are boat tailed unlike the untipped version. Planning on trying RL22 and RL25 with Fed215 primers.
