Just recieved this from Redding:

We have no immediate plans to make those dies. We can quote it as a Custom if you were to send a chamber reamer drawing, fired cases and /or a SAAMI spec sheet on the cartridge.

I got basically the same answer when I emailed Dillon. I think if we keep on bugging them, they will produce the dies. It's early on in the game, some companies are slow to move on anything that is new.

Redding already makes 300-221 dies. All they need to do is verify that they are in spec, and rename the dies in future production. But I don't care. As long as one good maker is offering dies that is fine with me. Today I sent Forster about 30 more fired cases to verify their dies.

Any way to determine if Redding dies meet the 300 BLACKOUT specs by checking a set of their dies. Would help those with Redding dies load for the 300 BLACKOUT.

Redding will have to do that - and then like Noveske, relabel new dies and certify (or not) their old ones.

What do you suggest is the best approach to get this done?
It appears at this time that Redding is not interested in the 300 BLK.

I suspect that they will make the same statements that you made.
"We cannot guarantee that it will or won't work....."

Is a campaign of calls & E-mails what it will take to get Redding to do this, or would friendly communication from AAC be a better approach?

I already asked them, and they said not yet, maybe later. I asked Forster, and they said yes. So I did all I could.
