    seating die

    what seating die do you use ? I have some Vickermans and I recently bought the Ponsness Waren seating die which I like better. You don't need to raise the case up to the bushing just drop in the bullet ,it won't drop out the bottom ,makes it easy to use and it comes powder coated in black. just need to buy the bushings with one die body.

    Forster BR seater is my first choice for loading Rifle ammo.
    While I mostly have Lee die sets, I have replaced most of the Lee seaters with the Forster BR seaters.

    Yes, that is why I switched to them.
    It all started when I had severe run-out issues with 22 hornet and seating a Ranch Dog boolit.
    Once I started really checking things out, I noticed mild runout in many of the rifle calibers I load, due to Lee's seater design. After some research, I found that Forster BR design to be one of the best.
