Bullet seating die

A vote for the RCBS match/micrometer. Throwing the bullet in the top is sweet!

Also, you can buy the stems and collars separately, so one body can run a bunch of different cartridges on the cheap.

The only issue to be aware of is they are "tall", and require a tall shell holder for short cartridges, and may not work in progressive presses, like a Dillon, as you can't screw them in far enough.

With my RCBS, and presumably any micrometer style, you can make an index mark on the press/lock ring, and record the micrometer setting for a particular recipe. When you swap them in/out, you can get them back to desired CBTO within a thousand or two on the first try. For example, I can go from a 175 ELDX to a 180 ELDM, or from 30-06 to 300WM, with only one "test" seat between changes.

Might as well add Wilson chamber type seater. Used them for years, from benchrest to present
If you ever start using wilson inline seater dies you will never go back, makes doing seating depth tests at the bench a breeze no loading bunch of different loads at different depths
