Reloading dies

Post by jppd47 » Mon Oct 04, 2010 6:35 pm

I emailed Forster about the dies, they said they dont make them, and are not able to custom make them....
Any word when they will be available?

Can someone post up a part number for the die set once Forester figures it out.

Gracias, I called and ordered the Ultra Set. They don't have any stock right now but are said to be in production.

E-mailed Redding this afternoon to see if they would be making dies.
I'll call tomorrow if I don't get a response.

Big fan of the Redding stuff and would like to stick with their dies if at all possible.

Redding makes dies for Fireball, so they just need to verify the specs and rename it if it is in spec.
