    Redding Competition dies

    I have a competition seater in a 308. I am using 165 SST's and I can't get them to seat to 2.8 OAL. I am about at 2.93 OAL What happens is that the press bottoms out on the die and the adjustment on the die is all the way down towards the press.

    Target crowns

    D.S. The end of my barrel does have tool marks where it was turned. When I shoot 5 shot groups I consistently get 3 in a bug hole and 2 are out, but as you said it isn't that much $ to spend
