    I use a redding in mine. I suspect the wilsons will also work.

    I use Redding and Custom Reloading Tools in mine, along with Hornady and RCBS one's. No problem in my Whidden bushing die.

    Any standard bushing is fine. Unless its one of the oddball ones made for a specific die like one with the shoulder built in

    Forster bushings are the only mass produced ones that I know of that are different than the rest. Any other brand works fine in a Whidden die.

    Wilson , Redding , R.C.B.S. , and I think Hornady will work . I'd check and confirm on the Hornady though , to be sure .

    As far as only buying Whidden bushings , I can walk into Bruno's and get any Redding Bushing needed , or I can order them from Whidden , and wait for a week to ten days . Prefer to use Whidden bushings , but when I needed it yesterday , a weeks wait doesn't help . Just sayin .....
