Wilson Dies

I've inherited a 22 PPC custom target rifle along with Wilson dies. My dad was into punching holes in paper, I'd rather punch prairie dogs.

I have no experience with Wilson dies; although, I do have with RCBS reloading elk rounds.

Any advice for a newbie with Wilson? Or, is there any reference matieral available?

Thanks,
Steve

Welcome to The Firing Line.

While I don’t have any Wilson dies I believe you need to use an arbor press with them. Supposed to be the best, used by just about all benchrest shooters I think. Sounds like your dad knew his stuff. You might give Sinclair a call they could answer any question you have. –

Sometime I’m going to buy some for myself.

Good advice, bullet94.

Wilson dies are pretty much the "Rolls Royce" of reloading equipment.
