Yes, get the Redding Body Die to shoulder bump, or the Redding FL sizing die. You can also have Jim Carstensen convert the Redding Body die to hold Wilson or Redding Bushings. That's a very good option.

Clymer has the BRX reamers also. Ask for the reamer spec'd for Bob Crone.

Dave Kiff at Pacific made me a standard necked 6BRX reamer I'm sure he's made another one.

Hi,

Re: modified 6BR body die.. you could just get the Redding S type FL/neck die. This is a body die with bushing neck-sizer.

I don't see how you could size the entire body with a standard 6BR FL die. It would seem it would stop sizing the body about .1" from the web. That's not as all good for a prone rifle.

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".

A standard 6BR die will not size the base of a BRX case. This becomes a problem after the 3rd firing or so. Bolt lift sticks right at the top of the lift stroke. We are currently trying to modify a 6BR full length die to size just the base. I will keep you posted on the results.

I just sent a request to Redding on what it would cost to have a FL die made for the 6BRX using Bob Crone's reamer print.
Hopefully will have a word shortly, and will post it then.


Hope This helps

Bob Greene, the gunsmith, has a new technology to produce true custom FL non-bushing sizing dies based off your fired cases. Price is $125, and you can get additional dies (with tighter or looser neck diams) for $100. Benefit is the whole neck and case is sized just how you want it, without the little roll at the base of the neck that neck bushings can produce. These should produce very nice brass, perfectly fitted to your chamber.
