    Hi guys.

    I cant seat 162 Amax projectiles with my Lee dies...the bullet tip crimps in the throat of the seating die. I also need a full length die so I think a Redding A series die set might be the go ( my Lee Collet set has been giving me 10mm groups out of my Savage so I'm not complaining).

    Does any one know if the Redding seating dies will handle the Amax.

    Cheers...Chris

    I had to drill out where the bullet tip goes into the die stem in my redding die. Hornady make a seating stem for their New Dimension for seating amax and berger bullets. Best thing, it doesn't cost very much either.
