I ordered in Jan or Feb and got them a few weeks ago. I believe they do a run once a month - not sure what the hold up might be but you could call them and ask...they have always been helpful with me.

Mine were custom 28 Nosler, FWIW.

It has 2 years but I have a hydraulic forming die and set of reloading dies for my .30 LARA and both came in between the 8-12 weeks window (I think I got it around the 10 week mark) as advertised. When was the last time you checked?

Put a Order in for There Hydraulic form die along with the micro seater die and their Bushing Click Adjustable Full Length Sizer die. The order was placed on March 30. Have not received them yet. But with the 8-12 week time frame I am looking at another 6 to 8 weeks yet.

I ordered and received the Whidden set that included the bushing dye and the micrometer seater. The bushing dye is nicely made, and the click adjustments convenient. Neck run-out and brass dimensions of my 6.5x284 Lapua is identical to my Redding competition bushing dye. I was not that impressed with the Whidden micrometer seater. I personally prefer the design of the Redding Competition micrometer seater.

I am just the opposite, I like the bigger size and brightness of the numbers on the Whidden, Although the main body is hard coated aluminum the main parts of it are steel and mine loads really nice and I like the fact that I dont have to remove the top of the seater to put back in the box , but my redding seaters work great to. Just personal preference here also :)

Same here! The only thing I did not care was the lock ring. Having said that, I changed all my dies lock rings to Hornady's.
