    I want to shoot semi-long range, 100-500yrds

    i have a custom 40-x in a 300WSM and cannot decide what type of dies to use , im pretty sure they will be redding dies , but what type do i need and how far into the reloading do i need to get, i want to produce accurit ammo with out having to worry about banging or bouncing it around while im hunting , can anybody give me a path to take and so rules to follow?

    thanks

    Forser die can produce very good ammo at adfordable price , just spend more money in case prep toll as

    primer pocket uniformer ( K&M or Sinclair )
    flash hole deburer or flash hole reamer
    a good inside chamfer tool with 14° angle
    a good case trimmer to get your neck square
    Davidson gage for caliper to know your real OAL and distance to the grooves .

    I doesn t need costly REDDING Competition die to produce good ammo most of my dies et are
    full sizer Forster or REDDING or Hornady
    seater Forster Bench or Hornady with home made sleeve ( Hornady sleeves are too loose )
    and on neck turning or fitted neck case I use Redding S DIE

    good shooting

    I am using Forester BR dies that have the JLC neck bushing coversion done ($35)

    Will shoot accurately as anything else. I have shot a 10 shot group of 5.9" in competition this year with them.
