MidwayUSA are selling Lee Pacesetter dies for 300 AAC Blackout (AKA 300 Whisper) for $31.40
and I thought WOW thats great.. a set of redding costs me $125 a couple of years ago.
Better buy one for spare..

Guess what... MidwayUSA are NOT selling to overseas retail purchasers..
nobody else stocks these dies..
and what made it rotten is the fact that LEE dont sell these dies directly to public,
so there goes my spare dies..


AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!

Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad

Sinclair international has forster dies.

www.sinclairintl.com/....20blackout

I also checked out Midway International and they had the dies for a few bucks more but unfortunately, they have a $500.00 minimum order. Shocked

Forster dies cost $$$
I might as well buy another set of Redding so I have a matching set.
I want the lee so I could "play" with it eg, maybe to make a "ackley" type whisper brass Razz

I contact an eBay reseller that I bought some stuff off a while ago.
Now I am waiting for an answer from him.

Gelandangan...I have an account with Midway and just put a set of AAC .300 Blackout die set (2) into my shopping cart (Total delivered to my home $41.00 USD). What do you want me to do with them?

I too have fallen foul of Midway's "no furriners" policy.
Their UK operation will quite happily sell me the same products - for three times the Midway USA price.:mad:
Luckily a mate in NM has a FFL, so he gets my stuff for me AND I get it at a discount.:-D

Way to go Bushy, I was going to suggest something to the likes of that when I began reading this post today but it looks as though you beat me to it. Way to help out the shooting effort.

Crap! I knew I was forgetting something.....I need a bulb under my shelf. Can you still buy incandescent bulbs? hope I'm not too late....Oh Stovie!! I need a bulb!! I don't have one under my shelf and I noticed it's pretty cool to have one there....for what I dunno....but it sure looks cool. Where did you find that great mount for it? Doesn't even need a cord, it's just a spare, I love it. I could mount my spare lipstick that way too. Put a picatiny rail on the bulb mount and put the lipstick on the rail...that'd be stylin stuff!
