    Ditto - I use a Forster seating die for my .308 and it's far better than the comparable Redding die for my .243.

    It is a shame that Forster reloading equipment is so difficult to source here in the UK.

    O wad some Power the giftie gie us to see oursels as ithers see us!

    Thanks guys. Think im going to go for the Forster. Willie_gunn, JabaliHunter is right what he said. I think Hannams are the main importer now. I live only a few mile from them and they keep plenty of Forster stuff in stock.

    Very good dies, I only use Forster or my own mde from Newlon blanks...

    If you do buy the Forsters, buy a couple of spare decap pins, they are the weak link..

    Or make your own from 1mm allen keys.....
