    Now, on to dies.
    On my last K31icon I started w/Rcbs dies --- error 1890 chamber
    then Lee --- error sized way too small
    then Hornady K31 ---- worked well but don't like "pull thru" decapping rod and "fall out" bullet seater.
    Always loved Redding dies, anyone have experience in K31 w/them ?

    I have the Redding dies and are happy with them. Only small problem is that I'm loading cast and the seating stem in only threaded in to the die a little more than a thread. Could probably bore it out some, but not that big of a problem.

    Pierre says the RCBS are a go to die, Redding as well (nice but cost more)

    I have RCBS and use it for a 1911, K31icon and a custom build 7.5 and no issues.

    Each rifle has its own cases as none of them would cross chamber with the Savage 7.5, no big deal, but I can adjust the head space and no fiddling allowed it to work.


    Thats one heck of a nice find.

    Open answer to a PM:
    .287 brass will work perfectly in your k11 or G11 series rifles.
    Although it will work in your k31, you may expect 1 out of 10 shots will not extract & eject, and that's due to the .287 rim being smaller by a bit.
    You wouldn't think there'd be a difference in extractors, but it's a fact.
