Micrometer Dies

I was wondering what kind of micrometer dies you guys prefer? I am using Forster now, but I'm always curious about trying something new. I am interested in hearing your thoughts.

Re: Micrometer Dies

all my dies are Forster FL and Ultra-Micrometer seaters,dont need to try anything else.
on a Forster Press, I dont think when you get to that level weather one is "better" than the other? I send 3 fired cases to Forster and have a set made, pretty hard to beat.?

except handgun are Carbide RCBS for our Family community Dillon.

A "clip" is a clip, aka Def: a device, typically flexible or worked by a spring, for holding an object or objects together or in place.
a "Magazine" is a magazine aka Def: a chamber for holding a supply of cartridges to be fed automatically to the breech of a gun.

so a "clip" holds the "magazine" in place. get it?

Re: Micrometer Dies

I will be sending my 3 fired cases from my 223 wylde to Forsters soon so i have custom dies to make rounds that exactly fit my chamber. Hard to beat dies made just for your exact application! This is just for my F class rifle. Anything else i use RCBS fl dies. They work very well

Re: Micrometer Dies

I have used the redding, forster and Wilson dies and I like them all. For my competition guns I use mostly Wilson and for my hunting rifles I use the redding and forster, I use the forster seater more because it costs less than the redding. I just got a whidden FL bushing die and so far I like it, when he makes them for the 7mm rem. mag. I will buy them.

Re: Micrometer Dies

I use Reading full length busing dies for sizing and Wilson seater dies with my reamer ran in to give a perfect fit. I use Sinclair Micrometer top on the Wilson seater. These dies give rally good alignment and with an arbor press you can feel if there is a difference in seating pressure. Matt

Re: Micrometer Dies

I have Forster Ultra micrometer seaters & one Redding Comp. seater but prefer the Forsters. Would replace the Redding if Forster made one for the 30br. Have used Wilson but became a pain to use when loading 100 at a time. The Wilson was a good die.
