    .303 dies

    Having recently bought a smart #4Mk1 Longbranch, Iíd like to start loading my own ammo. Trouble is, the country appears bereft of that calís dies. Specifically, Iím after:

    Collet die (so I donít resize whole case)
    Seating die
    Crimp die
    Shell holder

    Any assistance in finding same most appreciated.

    Iím also seeking some 174 gr fmj projectiles. Please no sniggering up your shirtsleeves!

    Cheers,
    Ingrid 51

    or try https://www.workshopinnovation.co.nz. They seem to have a few options listed.

    I've got some .310 Barnaul 174gr FMJ Projectiles. $40/100 + post.

    Thanks. Workshop Innovation has stuff listed, but when you go to buy/check out, most items come up as ‘not available’. PM sent.

    OK, still needing dies. I had some lined up, but the vendor has gone quiet.
    Although I have been loaned a set, I am still ultimately wanting my own; specifically seating and collet dies for the newly-acquired #4 Mk1. They appear to be unavailable here in NZ, but there are some in UK. Postage is the killer though.

    Speak with the retailers like Workshop Innovation, Reloaders, and Gunworks. If the wholesaler is out, they won't be able to get any immediately, but one or more should be proactive enough to get you what you need on a future shipment.

    You could shoot factory for now and collect your brass. PPU is fairly decent.

    Gunworks have three different set options in stock, but no collet it appears. Could get one and have it honed out?

    Crikey...missed that. It’s the collet die I’m really after.
