    Received a 'Redding Competion Bullet Seater' with no instructions in the box.

    What's the best way in setting the seater in the press ?

    How far do you back off away from the shell holder when in full ram position ?

    Any comments would be very much appreciated.

    I'll bet that a call to Redding would produce complete instructions.

    Set the Redding up like any other seater die.

    Unscrew the seater stem a good bit first.

    Run an empty case full up with the ram.

    Screw the die down until it contacts the case, then screw it back up a quarter turn and lock the ring.

    Seat a bullet on the case and run it fully up. Check the OAL and adjust the seater stem to get what you want the OAL to be.
