    270 Die set

    Good Morning,

    any reccomendations for a die set for .270?

    Regards

    Tom

    A month ago I bought a set of full length Lee dies for my 270,and have been using a set of full lenght in my 308 for some seven years now, both of them are used with a straight De-capping rod and then a Lyman M Die to follow.
    For me this gives the accuracy and reliability I need for both my hunting and target shooting.
    Some people think because the Lee is not as expensive as others that it may be inferior, I have found that this is not the case.

    I do however use a Redding S Full length bushing die for my 243 which does not work the brass so hard and was bought before the Lee dies.
    I would suggest not using a neck sizing die as the last thing you want is to have a round that will not chamber or worse still get stuck when you are in the middle of nowhere.
    For me it would have to be Lee.

    A sensible person always feeds his cartridges in and
    out of his rifle prior to going out stalking.
    Whenever I make up a new batch I always try them prior to boxing and putting into stock.
    I have had mainly RCBS gear in my long life-span.

    I would agree and also hope this sensible person would carry out this operation in a safe place or with the firing pin removed from the bolt.

    Only an insensible pillock would remove his firing pin.
    A sensible person would know what is and what is not a safe place otherwise he or she is not a fit and proper person to be in charge of a lethal weapon.

    We both agree that if this is being carried out it should be done safely and that is what matters.

    I also check that my cases will fit in the chamber after they have been de-primed and sized.
    When working up the loads and testing I cycle them through the rifle at my range with the firing pin removed.
    I do this as a precaution should the bolt jam. Unlikely but never the less possible.
