The Redding (Bottleneck) Bullet Seating Die - 6.5x55 is a single conventional die to seat the bullet and optionally apply a crimp when reloading rifle ammunition.
Click here for more details on the functionality of Redding dies.
This die has standard threads (7/8" x 14tpi), so can be used on most reloading machines. They are well suited for progressive reloading.
Case lube is not required on seating dies. In general, as part of a progressive reloading process, we recommend using an easy-to-apply, spray-on case lubricant like Dillon's DCL, with lanolin (DLN-13733).
Case lube saves wear and tear on the cartridge cases and your reloading equipment; you'll feel the significant reduction in force required to operate the press!
This die can be used to load the following calibres: 6.5x55mm Swedish Mauser
This calibre is part of Redding's Series A category. Dies in Series A represent the most popular calibres Redding produces and are thus offered at the lowest prices. Dies in Series B through D are less and less popular, and correspondingly more expensive to produce.
Custom dies in most calibres are also available on request.
