Maximize time at the reloading bench

RCBS’ new Rifle Bullet Feeder Kits are the most efficient way to reload metallic centerfire 22-caliber and 30-caliber loads.

consistency of your reloading process,” claimed Kent Sakamoto, product line manager. “It guarantees your progressive press rolls right along making round after round-regardless of press make or model. Red, green or blue, our new Rifle Bullet Feeders fit all progressive presses and increase the seed and consistency of reloading. That’s what these Rifle Bullet Feeders bring to the reloading table.”

Redding Introduces New Die Sets for 2010

Cortland, NY….. Redding Reloading Equipment introduces several new die sets for 2010. Redding is known for both quality and a vast selection of available dies, including many popular and not so popular wildcats. For 2010, Redding will add die sets for the new 370 Sako Magnum, 458 SOCOM, and 6.5 Creedmoor. All three of these new cartridges have major factory support and have become quick favorites with the shooting public. Customers should know that these dies will be available shortly after the SHOT Show in retail distribution and that Redding Reloading Equipment will continue to support popular, new calibers as they are introduced.

It is important to note that Redding continues to produce truly “Custom” die sets as well. The Engineering Group at Redding requires only a chamber reamer drawing or 5 fired cases from the firearm in question to quote the production of dies for virtually any caliber and firearm which can be made with a 7/8 x 14 TPI die body. Prices are quoted on an individual basis depending upon the complexity of the chambering and any need for tooling. Those seeking dies for a truly unique or obsolete cartridge should contact the Redding Custom Die Center in the company’s Engineering Department.

Redding offers numerous unique solutions to improve the accuracy, consistency and reliability of your handloaded ammunition.
