    Is there a part number on the box? Perhaps a photo of the box, dies and any part numbers might help? What info is stamped on the individual dies themselves?

    I'm guessing, but it might be a 6.5-08, the precursor of the 260 Rem.

    Spotted (the same set I'll bet) of these pop up from three different posters on SD now.

    For the traders they aren't .308 .... so aren't something you can turn a profit on......... sadly.

    These are the dies.... for the 6.5-.308 wildcat so a .308 necked down to 6.5. This cartridge isn't the same as the .260 Rem. The neck differs .... so Redding made a different bushing neck-size die-set for each.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.
