My first set of dies was a set of lee dies and since then have couple sets of rcbs dies and now one set of redding dies from what I've seen so far I really like the one set of redding dies I have if they make all there dies like the set I have then I won't be buying any other new set of die unless there reddings
Just my opinion.
You see alot of Lee dies innovation in other brands, which is a good thing. Also, Redding dies are top notch for consistency in quality

Yeah that seems to be the consensus on here. I am for sure going to go with Redding, just now which of their 5 models haha. Is it worth to get the S-Type Match for $190 or the simpler full length die set for $70 - they also have the master hunter set for like $170

Johnny’s reloading bench turned me on to the Forster dies a few years ago and I have been really impressed with them.
(full length and micrometer seating dies)

They are extremely consistent and I have seen less runout with them vs some of the cheaper options...

There is a seller on eBay in Oklahoma that normally has Forster items in stock when I couldn’t find them elsewhere.

Mainly Redding Type S. Some calibers I have their comp seating dies, for other calibers I Forster seating dies. I have a set of RCBS and Lee dies for my .257AI.

I use RCBS carbide dies for my handguns.

I have a 22 creedmoor being built I guess I’m going to have to use vice grips for a neck sizer and a hammer for a bullet seater unless things turn loose. David

If you are just looking to load for hunting and general varmints, your standard set should work great. The difference being between buying a chevy or caddy. Same quality 👌, different options.
Just my opinion
