odd find

found these with all my dad's die sets.

Anyone know if there is any significant difference between these and the 260 Rem?

    I believe what you have is a "custom shop" Wildcat die that predates the 260 by more than a few years. Odds are good you have a rifle for it in his stuff. The exact dimentions would have been to his specs.
    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    I wish that were true but no 6.5-308 in his collection. Not sure how or why he came to own this set:uhm: There is in fact a Ruger 77 MkII ultralight in 260 Rem(that has not come home yet) but I have proper dies for it.

    Since that's a neck sizing die, according to the box, you could use it to reload fire formed brass for the 260. Just don't let the shoulder area of the brass come into contact with the die body.

    I bet that will works just fine for a 260.

    Why does it say "Neck Set?":uhm:
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.
