I use a set of Redding dies from Kirby Allen and concentricity is held to .0015 or less, can't get much better than that, also that off Redding T-7 press.
So I would go with Defensive Edge set up.gun)

Use a set of Lee 338RUM for expanding, neck sizing, shoulder bumping, and seating.

Use a gutted 375RUM for full length sizing.

You can get both sets for less than $60.

Lee has a great tapered expander that is real easy on the neck.

I bought the Redding die set from Defensive Edge. I love 'em. Makes very accurate handloads. They even come with the proper neck bushing already installed.

I think I will try Forster BR seater and neck sizing Die for 338 RUM and A decent 275 Rum to FL size the body. I have no experience using bushing type dies for neck sizing I normally use the Lee Collet die but I dont think it would work for the edge.

I use the 2 die set ftom ShootLong for my 338 Edge
Have loaded some very accurate loads with the 300 gr Accubonds
I doubt that the competition micrometer or bushing dies would improve my loads any, but would be nice to have
