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.

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.
