I use redding bushing for my 6mm and whidden on my 22 creed. Both are equally as nice imo. I use redding seaters with both though.

I tried a whole bunch of stuff on mine, but the Hornady FL size and standard seating die work best for me.

I have a Lee neck sizer and Hornady bushing die with 288 and 289 bushings that I'd sell cheap if you're interested.

Just curious why Redding bushing dies instead of a standard FL die set?

bushing dies are overrated IMO

1. Redding with carbide sizer button
2. Check The Widden on YouTube, very nice stuff. I have their comp seater for my Creedmoor

Never used bushing died and wanted to try. Under the impression that it allows for a little more control of neck tension. I was planning on using alpha brass which is a bit thicker then other brass so I didnít want too much neck tension.

Any reasons not too? I have not hear any reason against them other than the ammo may not work in other guns

I did some extensive measurements on my 6.5 brass after sizing to compare the bushing dies versus regular hornady FL sizing dies, and the FL die created much more consistent brass for me.

Have you ever screwed around with Lee Collet dies? If you did, what did you see?

In what ways was it more consistent?

I mostly do too, Buzz, but the collet dies are truly outstanding---at least as far as design goes. They give excellent results, but I'd like to see them made the way Redding or Forster would make them.

What's wrong with Lee collet neck sizing dies, and a Forster seater? The Lee's make very straight and accurate ammo, with very low runout.

I use Whidden FL bushing dies, if you already know the bushing size you need Whidden can tailor a FL die so you don't have use a bushing.
