    Dillion die creedmoor

    Dillion precision does not make a 6.5 creedmoor die? Any suggestion on a good die set for the creedmoor?

    I'd check if Redding made Creedmoor dies. Ive handled them, but never used them. They looked the quality part for sure.

    Theres probably not a wrong choice but I've been happy with all of the RCBS and Redding dies that I have. Just going with the brand of your other dies should work fine.

    Sounds like you are planing on using a Dillon press for your 6.5 CM. I've tried them for prs shooting an they have to much slop
    to get really good loads. Never could get consistent shoulder set back with the Dillons. No matter how good your mic. seating die is, it's not going to alien the same each time. Get yourself a single stage press. I use an old RCBS Rock, that I've had for over 35 years. My current 6.5 dies that I use are from three different manufacturers. The good thing is the brass for the CM is pretty consistent in the neck thickness area. So I don't need to turn them. Not the same for some reason in other calibers.
    Good luck with your handholds for this caliber.
