The Redding Competition Seating Die has quickly established itself as the “state of the art” in straight line bullet seaters. This design has solved the concentricity problems inherent in all other seating dies of this type. The bullet guide to seating stem fit is so precise that the seating stem can actually be demonstrated to “float” on a column of air. The seating stem is precision ground to exactly match bullet diameter. Alignment and accuracy are enhanced by the cartridge case and bullet being completely supported and aligned in a close fitting, precision ground sleeve before the bullet seating begins. The micrometer is calibrated in .001" increments for precise seating depth and is infinitely adjustable (without clicks). The micrometer also has a setting feature that allows you to set the micrometer to your rifle or favorite seating depth.
