    Universal case forming dies

    Does anybody know of anyone that currently makes a universal case forming die with the progressively smaller bushings like the Skip Otto or John Bunch sets?

    Butch sold them for awhile. I'm not sure he still has any.
    Give him a call.

    Thanks. I bought one of the last sets Butch put together after John Bunch passed away and I don't think he ever had any more of them. I sent him an email earlier this morning to double check.

    I should have known Paul (pbike) would have them.

    Thanks for the replies I've got it covered now.

    They are also pretty easy to just make yourself...

    I have two sets, one for a .404 Jeffry sized body that also works pretty well with the typical .375 H&H cases, and one for the .30/06 size (.470), which works OK even down to .440 diameter cases, like the .22, Russian & 6.5x54 M-S. I suppose it would be best to have one for each body diameter, but I don't think it's really needed.

    FWIW

    I *could* make a 6mm on the .404 with these, but haven't (& won't). Did make a 6.5/404 "real short." Same capacity as the 6.5/284. Not worth the work.

    Here's another heresy, based on sad experience: Resize dies for anything bigger than a .30/06 should be 1-1/4 dies, not 7/8 dies.
