    Can you use Redding or Rcbs neck bushing in a hornady match die set? Is there any interchangeability across brands?

    That has been my experience also. I was getting more runout than I wanted in my Redding S dies using Redding bushings (steel and coated). Someone suggested I try Whidden. It cut my runout in half, no other changes.

    Mike,,,I like the Wilson bushings becasuse they are usually much closer to the size they are marked (vs the Redding which are usually .001-.002 smaller than marked) and the Wilson bushing can be inverted (numbers down ) giving .0005" more sizeing when needed,,,Roger

    This is good to know. I'm ready to abandon Redding bushing dies no matter how hard I try. What is the difference in the Whidden bushings to make them give better run out?

    Whidden will make bushings in any size for you. When they don't have the size that you are after on their list. I just ordered one each in .301 & .302 and neither were on their list. Just give them a call.
