    When I got my 7mm08 AI'd, I sent my Lee collet neck die with rifle and he reamed that at same time. We couldnt get a 7mm08ai body die so he got in a Redding 260ai body die and modified it.
    I'm not a target shooter and never checked run out but its accurate enough that I have the confidence to shoot deer out to 600yds.

    Widden is your best option, but not sure how NZ Customs are handling reloading gear. Suspect they will think its a gun part!. I see Target Dynamics in Tauranga list Widden dies, so might want to see if they can get a custom set in for u if you dont want to order them direct.

    NB using a chamber reamer wont work for making a die. You need a separate reamer cut to different tolerances to make a die.

    Brought a Whidden die in late last year. No issues. Didn't bother about a permit as when I previously applied for a permit for a Wilson die I was told not required.

    And yes a finishing chambering reamer does not make an effective full length sizing die. I have one FLS die made using the chambering reamer but the die has been internally built up using the electroless nickel process. It still struggles to FLS.

    Been trying to get hold of a neck die for 7mm Blaser Mag, no one locally could help. Found that CH4D had it listed. Couple of emails and 10 days later it’s arrived. Easy to deal with, excellent product & service. Definitely recommend.
