Custom Dies

Whether you’re a hunter or a competition shooter Whidden Gunworks can manufacture Custom dies to your exact specifications and if needed can work with your gunsmith to ensure your dies are as accurate as your new rifle.  Our Custom dies will solve problems such as sticky extraction and the dreaded “Bolt click” without over working your brass. We can custom match your dies for Factory Rifles as well as Custom Rifles including auto loading rifles.  What others may consider “Wildcat” is the norm for us.  We offer Custom Sizers, Seaters, Hydraulic Form Dies and Trim Dies from .20 Caliber to .408.  

 We have found the best method to make Custom dies is to use your fired brass from the rifles chamber.  We understand early in a rifle build fired brass may not be available.  In those circumstances we can use your reamer print but please note the fired brass will usually yield the best results. If you choose to send your fired brass, please do not resize and plan to send in three pieces.  Upon completion your brass will be returned to you with your Custom Die. 

 Lead time for Custom dies is usually 8-12 weeks from the time your order is placed.  We are constantly receiving brass and reamer prints for orders.  Custom dies are built in batches monthly usually starting around the first week of the month.  Once the entire batch is made we send them out to be hardened via a carburized heat treat process to ensure a lifetime of use. Upon return we bead blast, hand polish, inspect and process for shipping so please ensure you factor in the turnaround time when ordering.
