    Has anyone got a Wilson 6BRA micro seating die. They are telling me it would be a special.
    That would suprise me as the 6BRA has become so popular.

    A 6 dasher seating die works perfect for the 6bra!

    I was planning to have my dasher die trimmed down. But now after loading nearly 500 rounds in the Dasher Die with no ill effects I guess I will continue using the Wilson Dasher micro top to load my BRA Ammo.

    I bought a Wilson 6mm blank and @Alex Wheeler "chambered" it for me. Is it any better than using a Dasher die? IDK, but I'm probably one of the few that didn't already have a Dasher die. So, it made sense to me.

    I always think it is slightly better when the rifles reamer is used. Clearances have to be tighter and alignment has to be better. Matt

    Thanks everyone.
    I just needed the bullet seating die so I guess I order the dasher and use it as suggested.

    I may be thick headed but would someone please explain to me how this works? My thinking is it really does nothing to the brass as using the same reamer that the barrel was chambered with would give the same result as the fired case already has. Also would the neck not be over sized and not give any neck tension?

    This a seater die. When done with the chamber reamer it will be a tighter fit. That in return should help with bullet alignment. A regular seating die would be big to allow all companies cartridges to fit. This would go for a no turn neck to a tight neck. Matt

    Correct. We are only talking seaters. I use a Harrell’s Dasher trimmed .08” for sizing. I may switch to a Whidden non bushing sizer eventually, as I get better run out with non bushing dies.
