    Default 358 Norma Mag dies?

    Did RCBS quit making them?
    I need a set & the only ones I find listed are Redding.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not a die snob & have nothing against Redding. Heck, most of my dies are Lee. Just wondering what's available.
    Finally got a rifle & want to play!

    Default Dies

    Try looking on Ebay. There is usually a set or two listed.

    I have some 358 cailber 225 grain Nosler ballistoc tips that might work perfectly in your 358 Norma. They are a little too long for my 350 Remington Magnum. Got any 35 caliber rifle bullets for trade? I am just down the road in Homer and go up there fairly often.

    Hey Float Pilot.

    Already figuring on ordering the Reddings Monday (if the handloads I already have shoot (see "Spot of corrosion in barrel" thread). Was just hoping to find som used 1st. Don't quite understand RCBS' prices on these dies. Twice the price for the same quality (at best).
    Will probably also order a Redding tapered expander at the same time so I can neck up 300 brass. Wish I knew if the one that comes with the dies is tapered.
    As for the bullets, I think I have a full (?) box of Hornady 200 gr Interlocks. Was going to order Nosler 225 Interbonds or Partitions when I order dies... When will you be headed this direction?

    Now that youv'e cleaned the dust bunnies out of the tube, SHOOT IT !!
    Don't worry about the spot it probably won't effect the guns accurracy being that far from the muzzle.
    After fireing a box of so of ammunition,if you really want to hunt with THIS rifle then worry about lapping the spot or whatever. Remember some bore cleaners,cleaning rods, and brushes can damage the bore of a rifle badly; Choose your poison wisely, and clean from the bolt end of the rifle ( avoiding damaging the crown).
