    Redding or Forster bushing neck dies?

    hi

    im looking to get some bushing neck dies to experiment with neck tensions. I curently only use Forster dies (f/l and seating) but have been told the bushings are difficult to get in the UK where as redding are readily available?

    Does anyone have an opinion on either? They would be used in a Forster press for .243, 6.5x47 and .308

    Thanks

    Ash

    Forster also have an option to get the necks honed at the factory or supply larger diameter expander balls. I would suggest pursuing your investigations in one calibre to start with as bushings get quite expensive.

    Redding 'S' type dies are good.

    For any of this kind of stuff, I would just order direct from Sinclair International.

    Have a good trip. There's lots to read on this topic. One article I've read a couple of times is:

    and there's some good discussions on this topic here:
