    Just got my new dies from Neil last week, so he is still alive. Try email njones@mdvl.net or contact from his web at www.neiljones.com. fax is (814) 763-4228

    Other guy might be Jim Carstenson (JLC Precison ad in Precision shooting). he can make FL size die off your fired brass or from your chamber reamer. Uses a body insert squeezed down in the die. He also converts any factory die to bushings for $35. His dies are not micrometer adjustable I do not think. Never had him make one, just convert to bushing for me.

    Keep after Neil Jones for best dies in my opinion.

    BH,

    Someone on VarmitHunters forum said he will be back April!!! I'm screwed because I need it now and he will have a backlog when he returns!

    Randy,

    I spoke with Neil on the phone about three weeks ago now, he said he'd be back on the 1st of April and have everything all caught up before he left on vacation March 1st. He said he'd get my dies right out the door after he got back if I called him on April 1st. That's still two weeks off, but he said he'd be all caught up. He said he couldn't get mine done before he left because he needed to get everything out the door before leaving. Good luck. [​IMG]

    Have tried to get him for weeks. Out of business or what? Are there any other custom die manufacturers?


    Thanx
