Thank you Christopher. I use those dies in other cartridges as well. I'm glad they are working for you in the 300NM. Looking forward to this build.I use a Redding competition seating die with a VLD stem (I shoot Warner Flatlines out of that gun) and their type S full-length sizing die. Results have been great.
I looked them up at Midway. They look like they have everything Redding has. They certainly look they're worth a shot.
What about the Reddings you don't like? Not being critical just learning. Thanks.I own about 2 dozen sets of Redding in many cartridges, and I think they’re mediocre. The hornady’s have better dimensions, and a much better internal finish. I also have a few whiddens, and they are very nice.
Wow. You have me thinking about tossing my Redding dies.
I've had issues with Redding as well. I use all Whidden dies now, they work great.I don’t think you need to do that, especially if they’re working for you. Certainly Redding has stomped the rest of the field is sales, but going forward, you should definitely check out Hornady match, whidden, and Forster.
