U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- RCBS, the leading manufacturer of ammunition reloading equipment for rifles and pistols, has announced the expansion of its Matchmaster and Group D Die offerings with the addition of several new cartridge options.

The RCBS Matchmaster Die line now includes a 6mm ARC model for both its standalone Competition Seating Die and the full Competition FL Bushing Die Set. The RCBS Group D Die line has added FL die sets for 22 Creedmoor, 6mm GT, .300 PRC, 6.5 Weatherby RPM, 9.3x64mm Brenneke, 8x58mmR Danish Krag, 8x50mmR Austrian, and 30R Blaser. With new Matchmaster and Group D Dies for additional cartridges, more shooters are trusting RCBS for their reloading needs no matter what they shoot.

The Matchmaster Die Set includes two dies intended for precision reloading. It consists of a full-length sizer die with an expander-decapping unit and a seater die with a bullet seater window. Some of the notable features on the Matchmaster Die set are a bullet loading window, micrometer adjustable seater, free-floating/self-centering bullet seating system found in the seating die plus a titanium carbo-nitride expander found in the sizing dies that reduces the force required when sizing with the expander button installed.

The Group D Die is designed for reloading bottleneck cases and consists of a full-length sizer die with an expander-decapping unit and seater die with bullet seater plug. The die brings the case to minimum Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI) cartridge dimensions.

MSRP is $185.95 for the Matchmaster Competition FL Bushing Die Set and $128.95 for just the Matchmaster Competition Seating Die. All models of the Group D Die have an MSRP of $89.95. Both the Matchmaster and Group D sets also come with a lifetime warranty. For more information about these or other RCBS products, visit RCBS.com.

Resembles the Hornady Dies except for the micrometer bullet seating adjustment and bullet window.
Seems to me if you drop in a bullet through the window it would just fall out the bottom unless a case is already in the die.
Also cost more than a Hornady die.
I only have two Hornady die sets, 303 British and 458 SOCOM, the rest are Lee die sets.

You can get micrometer bullet seat adjustment on Hornady dies.

Why are you showing a RC Supreme kit when the RC Supreme press has been out of production for quite some time?

I bought that die set years ago and it did not seat the bullets concentrically. I ended up going with a Redding Competition Seater die:
Redding Competition Seater Die 308 Winchester (midwayusa.com)

I used a RCBS X-die to size. My Savage 10FP would shoot sub MOA groups all day long with the bullet it liked. After 7,000 rounds I took the 308 Win barrel off and put a 358 Win barrel on it. While the Redding die costs more I think it is worth it if shooting small groups is what you want.

Went almost the same way, went with the Redding competition s. I liked being able to change the neck bushings.
