There are a bunch of different companies out there who make reloading dies now. What do you prefer?

Almost all of mine are RCBS. I may pick up a Redding set for my 25 WSSM and give it a try.

I like Lee , simple to use . inexpensive . I have RCBS . and Lyman also Pacific . I'm not doing a huge volume or anything . I'm shooting small groups with the Lee dies . Not real sure if a micro adjust , super duper . die would give better results in factory barrelled rifles . Thier RGB two die sets have been great .

You'd have to have more than one rifle of the same caliber or shoot different bullets in the gun to get the full benefit of a micrometer adjustable die. I do shoot several guns of the same caliber and shoot a variety of bullet types and weights out of those guns. It would drive me crazy with the setup time in standard dies where it takes seconds to do it with the micro adjust dies. :lol:

I'm not in disagreement with you shooterjohn , and I certainly could see a value in adjustments if I were using several different bullet types in a particular calibre . I've found that I tend to find a bullet type and wieght within the perameters of what I'm hunting and go from there .
