    Hello,
    Was wondering if anyone know who makes this bullet seating die with the window to place the bullets in.
    Thanks in advance,

    I don't recognize that die, but if you're looking for one for yourself with a similar configuration you might consider RCBS's Competition Seating dies. They also have the window for bullet seating.

    Thanks, this die came with a Ponsness Warren Metallic-2 press I purchased and I wanted to find additional inserts but no brand marks on it. It came with a .30 Cal Sleeve and Seating Pin. I know it is not a PW model or RCBS. So I am trying to identify it to find additional caliber parts.

    It may be a Vickerman or Wichita Precision die.

    Check Ponsness & warren, they make a die like that. It is listed on their web site under metallic accessories. The complete die is $59.95. Also Weatherby used to market a die set, I had one in 300 weatherby Mag. Also RCBS sells a Gold Medal Die which is similar.

    Thanks Kenny,
    I think it is a Herters "Model Perfect" Automatic Seating Die, the caliber marked on the sleeve and bullet seater is ".300". I put a .30 Cal case in it and it is not a neck sizer. It is not exactly like a Herter's as I can't match my photo with any of the existing Herters photos but the sleeve and seater portion resemble the Herters a great deal. But hey I'm getting closer. thanks again for your help and same to others that have responded.
