Redding's standard dies are of excellent quality. What makes Redding a good buy for me is that they produce dies in calibers that either no one else does, or they are less expensive. The two Redding die sets I have are for the .351 WSL and .25 Remington. Both were considerably cheaper than RCBS.
For milsurps, it is hard to beat Lee dies...the colleted decapping pin alone sells them to me. I load for about 35 different rifle cartridges, and number wise, I have more Lee dies, followed by RCBS, then Redding, and Lyman. They all work well, I don't think anything of current manufacture is of poor quality.
+1 on Lee dies. I have a mix of both Lee and RCBS. I've never had an issue with a Lee die. They are a great value. Nothing wrong with RCBS either -- just more expensive than Lee. I'm sure the Redding will be fine too.
I just started reloading a few months ago.I started with RCBS dies but i've got to liking the LEE dies.They have far better decapper pins and are a lot cheaper.You save money on the dies and spend the xtra on components.mike
Redding makes a great product and always has. yes they are a little more than the others but its your cash so have at it.IMHO RCBS is only slightly behind in the quality and finish But they have a NO BS NO questions asked replace/repair policy thats the best in the industry If it breaks even if you abused the living snot out of it RCBS will repair or replace it with just a phone call ! That for me gets my business.
