Re: Redding Die Sets
Hey thanks, I quickly looked over Forster site and ordered catalog; going to look back over it later tonight.
You see, I've never reloaded, but a buddy from Georgia that comes up Ak hunting every fall has been after me to get into reloading. This guy spends 2 months up here and only shoots those Accumark Weatherbys. I finally broke down, bought a 30-378 like his; and it does reach right out there. I told him I'd build one of those hornady benches and have everything here when he flys up; he could show me how it's done. Winter is closing out, already thinking about those long range double shovel shots in August.
WE get up on our summit, and glass bou & moose down in these canyons; some are way off, 1500 yards and such. My buddy has an expensive high dollar spotting scope. I have as much fun watching them bou scratching themselves as shooting them. So anyway, I want to start reloading to help improve accuracy.
I've killed moose & caribou at 700 yards & across the river which is even farther with the 7 mag; but I got to shoot like 3 foot or more over their back. What's funny is, when I first got in country up here in early 90's; I'd never consider shooting at anything over 300 yards away; too conditioned to back east hunting. I even passed on a 60 inch bull at around 500 yards once; boy I wish I could go back to that day with what I know now.
Anyway, this is why I want to get the best competition dies I can find. Then too, maybe they are all just the same and I'm missing the point; but thank you all for any pointers & info on the way to go with dies for most accurate reloading.
