Did you have Lee make you a custom Collet Die? I've never seen one for the 280 AI and would love to have oneI currently use a Redding body die to size/bump my 280 AI brass, followed by a Lee collet neck sizing die to size the necks. The ammo is fine, but I'd like to know if there is a single die that accomplishes the same thing to the same standard. I'm mainly trying to consolidate two steps into one step. I'm looking at Redding full length sizing dies but my worry is that I won't be able to set it up to size as minimally as I am with the body/collet dies.
No sir, no different. Just set up for 0.002 worth of tension. I learned that they were interchangeable on this site so there are a couple other threads about doing it but nothing to itReally??? Great to know, thank you. Do you have to set it up differently?? I’m guessing no
Agree totally, thats why they don't bend or distort the necks. The neck's alone are sized supported by the collet on the outside and sized by the mandrel inside, floating enough at the top of die to line up.The lee collet die sleeve/collet doesnt support the case at all. The body floats in the collet and centers up as the collet squeezes the neck. This is why I can use them on all my Ackley Improved rounds.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
