Conversations abounded at the 2023 SHOT Show around two new calibers, the 7mm PRC and 360 Buckhammer. RCBS now offers full length die sets for both calibers as well as the Weatherby 338 RPM. RCBS, as well as many in the industry, are planning on 7mm PRC being around for some time.
Smith hinted that RCBS MatchMaster dies in 7mm PRC are in the works. We’ve had great experiences with it on the channel so far.
Also available are new supreme dies. These sets include the standard full-length dies, appropriate shellholder and case gauge — conveniently all in one. These are available in eight calibers: 308 WIN, 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5mm Creedmoor, 243 WIN, 300 AAC Blackout, 223 REM, 300 WIN MAG, and 30–06 Springfield.
I’ll be getting some of these new dies in to run through the traditional paces. Let me know what you think of these new dies from RCBS, particularly the MatchMaster dies coming in 7mm PRC!
