    Harrel's!! A year and a half ago, I was told to ask for a D3 Dasher die, .085 shortened. Ordered on a Monday, in my hands on Friday. Great people to deal with....

    Harrell's. After having getting some clickers with my Whidden, I sent in 2 pieces of brass fired 3x, with $92. No more clickers. And if its not quite right, I have heard they will swap it out for another size.

    Since the first 6BRA I have recommended Harrell's to my customers and they have easily sold more BRA dies than anyone with hardly an issue. A good handful of current records are held by guys using that die.

    I always used Redding bushing dies. I always thought they were really well made dies.

    Until I got my Harrell's 6BRA die... which is like sizing butter by comparison. The internal finish of a Harrells must be ten times better.

    I tried to buy a Harrell's and didn't have any fired brass, told them reamer that was used and was told they don't sell a die based off of a reamer, I replied I understood but needed a die to start with as I couldn't send fired brass until I could resize some. Told that was only way they sold dies.....................so I hung up and ordered a Whidden.

    I just lightly tapped a bushing onto the neck of my 3 pieces of brass and sized just enough to hold a bullet. Did that three times and headed to the post office and mailed them to Harrels. They had the die back to me unbelievably fast!

    You were smarter than I was, but the Whidden works just fine.

    Probably not over sizing the brass either

    You don't need the correct sizer die to start with a piece of new brass just to load and shoot it a couple of times, just so it will hold a bullet. So if you have a seater you are good to go..... jim

    Harrell's, just fire a case hot three times neck sizing each time just enough to hold the bullet and send Linwood the shell you are up and running in a few days, last whidden dies I ordered took 6mo. Never again

    I don't have any experience with Harrell's, so I can't speak to that. Sounds like they make an excellent product. Like you I got a Whidden, click adjustable FL sizer based off my reamer print and I'm pretty happy with the purchase.

    I have the Whidden dies. I sent a reamer print to them and they advised it matched up to their FL die. I ordered the set with a FL bushing click adjustable die and micrometer seater. It got here in three days and life is good.
    But, just in case you want to save some $$, the 6 Dasher seater will seat bullets on 6BRA just fine.
