    Was just wondering what you guys would recommend in regards to dies and press for .338LM.......dont need a massive grand set up, use elctric scales and stuff so just need press.

    cheers mike, will check em out, its hard to get gear here in OZ, but redding is usually on the shelves. others have been saying hornady arnt to bad either, only been reloading for about a yr and still learning bits and pieces here and there. there are def some that are more user friendly them others.
    cheers for your feed back anyway mate.

    I use a Lee classic press, came with their 50th anniversary kit, does the job I suppose. I use a Forester micrometer seating die and Redding type S bushing dies.

    Redding Comp 3 die set and a Redding T-7. I have loaded over 1200 rounds of 338 LM on mine and love it.

    I like Jeff's set-up with the T-7. Just change heads and you're off and running.
