hello all.
i am loading now for .38super. does anyone have any experience with this seating die from redding. it is their micrometer competition pistol die. it supposedly gives you very accurate and consistent seating on o.a.l.

i would like to make my oal as consistent as possible. i have a little variation in oal (1.255 to 1.260) with the dillon seating die, but nothing that does not normally occur there.

that redding die costs more than a full dillon, or rcbs carbide three die set.

is it worth it?
i could load up another thousand rounds for that cost!

Suggest your .005" variation not relevant.

I have one in .45ACP. I like it because I switch between bullet types and it is extremely easy to change the seating depth without tools. If you are only using one bullet type then I don't think that the redding die is worth it.
