    i got a set of redding type S full length .22-250 dies, if i want to go to a .22-250 AI could i just have my gunsmith ream the dies instead of buying a new set.

    You will need 22-250 dies if you reload to make up your rounds for fire forming and the fire form loads are pretty accurate I use the fire form loads for close shots and use full loads for anything longer.
    the redding dies are $58 & change lee has them for $30 and change,the gunsmith will probably charge as much as lee dies
