What company would be the best to get a set of Custom Competition reloading dies for? 6mmBR Norma, 6.5x47L and .308 Winchester.

Thanks, Bob

Are you looking for dies made from your chambering reamer? If so, Newlon die blanks are excellent for the seater. And folks like Harrell can make a FL sizer from fired cases. If not, match grade Reddings generally work well.

Whidden usually has those in stock or makes em from your cases in about a week. They dont just get one off the shelf that fits either.

I was figuring on getting Whidden Custom dies made from three fired cases and my reamer print. Looks like there set has two dies, one being a Neck Sizer / Full Length Sizer combination, plus a micrometer seating die and then a small Headspace something that you use with calibers ??? Reddings Competition Set is three dies, one Neck Sizer, one Full length sizer and one seating. Is there any advantage to the three die verses the two, while the Whidden would be custom to my chamber.

Thanks Again, Bob

You dont need a neck sizer so its just an extra die you gotta buy from redding. The headspace thing for your calipers is for setting up the bump of your fl die

I like the Redding full type S match set. A full length Type S bushing die with a competition seater. It may or may not fit your chamber. It's a factory die not a set made up to match your fired cases.

I talked to Whidden and am going to go with their custom dies. Thanks for all the input.
