    I have a new 338 lap on the way. I have previously owned a lap it was a rem 700 police and i had a set of foster dies or it. I ended up selling the rifle by accident opened my mouth and the guy had a pocket full of hundred dollar bills. Anyway, i have one of the new savage 110 hs precisions on the way i was wanting some opinions on dies. I sold the dies with the other rifle. what dies do you all use/recomend. I am looking at the redding competition dies but are they really worth 300 dollars. this will be a target rifle mostly with some long-range hunting when i get the chance but mostly target shooting

    buy once cry once.... got a set of standard RCBS 338 lapua dies when i first got my BA110 and ended up going to the Redding FL bushing die and competition seater die in the end cause i was pulling my hair out trying to deal with bullet and case neck run out problems while using the RCBS dies..... the redding dies seem to have cured that problem....
