Redding Die Sets
Bought a Redding Ultra Mag press, 3BR measure, scale, case trimmer, and bunch of other related accessory items; first attempt at getting into reloading. Most my friends have those lee loaders & couple hundred dollar kits; think I'm nuts spending 1500 on everything; I'm sure you all know of what I speak.
So I want to order my rifle dies and then order pistol dies later this year. (270,7mm,338, 30-378) Redding has standard 3 die sets for 50-90 bucks/set. Then I heard about Redding's Type S Bushing Die sets & Competition Bushing Neck Die Sets. The better sets are twice or 3X the price but another reloader claimed to go that route. I guess it has something to to do with resizing and that excessive resizing leads to shorter case life and concentricity problems. Since my intention is to improve accuracy would it be a good idea to go with the better competition dies from the start? I kinda don't want to buy the standard 3 die set for 60 bucks and then buy the better set a few months later. I have around 20 boxes of brass of each caliber except the 30-378 and will be shooting out of same gun.
So has anybody experienced or used the Redding competiton bushing dies? Were you satisfied and what did ya think? Appreciate any insight.
