    This is probably going to be a dumb question, but I havent found the answer yet so I guess I'm going to have to ask.

    If a fella wants to build a 338 edge, what dies does he get to neck up the RUM brass, and seat bullets? Seems I could seat with a 338 RUM seater, but figured I would put my self up for some ridicule and education to be sure.

    Thank yall.

    Simplely order some .338-.300RUM dies or .338 Edge dies. They're easy to find. Sinclair has some 338-300RUM dies for $165. I've got a good feeling Shawn Carlock at Defensive Edge can hook you up with some 338 Edge dies.

    I use a $27 set of 338RUM dies to expand, neck size, and seat. I also bought a 375RUM FL sizer on Ebay for cheap. I took the expander out of it and use it as a body die.

    I have less than $55 in them and they work great.
