    That is a straight line seating die. C-H made it and it works well.

    will also work for 30-06....I've been using that same die since the late 60's
    mine has a sliding sleeve which helps guide the bullet. I did not see that on yours

    It should work on any 30 caliber rifle case. I may try it with 7.5 Schmitt Rubin, when I find a die set.
