    I just started using 21st Century hydro press and seating dies in 6br and 6 Dasher and both load with the best concentricity that I have ever had on these two rounds. Really great equipment from 21st Century. Also the priming tool is the nicest I've ever used you can't go wrong with anything from John Perkins

    He's making a new seating die that is customized to your case and the bullets of your choice. Very precise on base to ojive.
    He's working on a video now that will introduce this awsome product to you!

    There's one huge problem buying anything from 21st Century Shooting ! After your first purchase you'll empty your wallet replacing everything with 21st items. Absolutely superb tools and their customer service is second none !

    I've been using the Hydropress for the last 12 months and I believe its definitely helped me improve on shooting tighter groups, it's handy having a figure to help batch loaded rounds of same seating pressures together..

    Cheers Rushty

    John, that's funny, that's the same thing I always tell my wife when the brown truck stops at the end of the driveway.
    I'm not sure if your just making a point or practicing your own self serving strategies ! :D

    I have been using the 21st Century Super Precision Click Head Priming Tool (mentioned above) and their Neck Turning Lathe, and I can't imagine any others being any better - 21st Century is first class, as is John. Thank you for great products!

    I have John's neck turning tool with various caliber arbors and angled cutters as well as his New Gen Arbor Press. You won't find finer tools anywhere. He is a master machinist that produces top shelf equipment.

    Hi,This is what I think is missing in the bullet seating arena. 16651616_1399318843446911_123738636_n.jpg 16651616_1399318843446911_123738636_n.jpg

    These are custom built so you will need to send John 3 sized cases and 3 bullets from the same lot you are shooting. He builds a air tight seater that needs a few examples for measuring purposes. It's very nice!

    You went and let the cat out of the bag. I'm hoping to put mine through it's paces as soon as I get an open weekend and some decent weather. Like everything else you've made, this die is pure quality.

    It was mentioned, "3 sized cases" I wonder what would happen if you ran out of a particular "lot" of cases and bought some more cases, same brand?? That sure is impressive picture. Especially the way the bullet is captured.

    His web site shows a caliber list. I wonder about wildcats.
