    Any of you guys ever use a standard Lee collet die for reloading an Ackley improved case

    I'm looking to get some good accurate dies for a new 280Ackley I have coming soon.

    JD,

    I have been using the std. Lee collet dies for my 243 AI for over a year and there is nothing but good to say . Low tir and minimal prep and ....... groups that hover from the high ones to the low twos at 100 ( yards Roy , not feet /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif )

    My 25-06 die works pefect on my 25-06AI. I modified it slightly with a drill to not size quite as much neck and it now works on my 257Wby too.
