This is the response I got from Redding when I inquired about a small base Type S FL dies for the 6.5x284.

"Thank you for using Redding Reloading Equipment. A small-base 6.5MM/284 Type S Full Length Die would be $111.00, plus $50.00 engineering and setup. Delivery of custom dies is approximately 16 weeks after receipt of order."

This seemed a bit much to me, since they already make a small base body die. I rechambered for $50 and had the barrel back the next day. Not an option in the case of the BRX. Kind of makes the Dasher look a little easier, as the dies are already available.

So,, how do you Fl size the complete body with a standard FL or Body sizer? What am I missing?

This is an excellent question, can someone answer, I just can't see how either!
I have a strong feeling the answer is actually "NO".

Would a standard or small base 308 die work to bring the last part of the body back into specs? Obviously not an elegant solution but perhaps this would work if you got desperate and couldn't chamber your rounds due to body expansion just in front of the web. Use the 6BR body die for the shoulder bump on the BRX and the 308 die for the last part of the body.

BTW: Hi - this is my first post

It sounds like it would work, I've never used two dies on one case! It sure would be a sloppy approach after spending all the money to attain accuracy !
The shoulder on a BR is a little greater than the shoulder on a 308, but the shoulder on the 308 die shouldn't come that far down on the BR case. My recommendation is "Do it right" get the correct die.

Here is a response I just recived from Mike Bryant, concerning this.


Michael,
It depends upon how hot you shoot it as to whether this causes a problem with the base of the case or not. As long as you don't run maximum pressures, you shouldn't have a problem. You should still be able to get higher velocities than the standard 6 BR.

Mike with the dies backed up it won't size the base of the case correct. Do you think they will be a problem after a few firing's?

Well, it appears everyone has an opinion! It's your gun, do what you want. I stand completely behind what I said. Get the correct die.

Then why not just get a custom die set made from Redding. Shouldn't be much more than $160- $175 I'd say for a standard 3 die set!

Well I was wrong!

I got a quote from Redding on what it would cost to have a custom set of dies produced for the 6mm BRX.

$138.00: Dies
$50.00: Engineering
$10.00: Shipping

12-16 week lead time paid in advance.

You might call Hornady and get a quote from them on a custom die. "Marty Hummel", I think is the guy to talk to. I purchased one last year that appears to me to be of top quality for a lot less than what Redding wants. You send them 2 or 3 fired cases and tell them whether you what it a bushing die or not. It's worth looking into...
