I have narrowed it down to the Forster full length set or the Hornady match grade set. Which set would be the best of these two for reloading 6.5x47 Lapua?

Either will work fine. I prefer the Hornady dies, since I like the tear dropped expander ball, and easy to use seating die.

Agree either will work fine but I'd buy Whidden dies. It's all buy anymore.

Judd, are you using the bushing or non-bushing dies? I have been looking into a set in 6.5 x 47

Thanks men . I ordered the Hornady match grade two die set. I'll try these and see how they do. Now to find some load data for the 140 grain ELD and 143 ELD X bullets out of the 6.5x47.

Just about any good dies will work for most folks. Some of us prefer some brands over others. I use exclusively Redding products, but that's just personal preference. You'll be fine with Hornady and they will turn out some great loads for you.
