Can anyone tell me if the No 11 part 044111 is suitable for the 300Win Mag? I want to sell mine to an owner of the 300Win Mag.
Thanks

  I don't know if it would work or not. The #11 .30cal die has a die body length of 3.7" where the #12 .30cal die has a length of 4".  I know back when I ordered a Hornady for my .300 magnum the 30cal seating dies were designated short and long.

On hornadys site, under the 300 WM, they list both of them.  Not sure which one comes in the set.  I have the set, but it is currently at my parents house 300 miles from where I am at.  Sorry I can't check that for you.

  Don't know what's with that. I checked .308 Win and it lists both for it. What diff could 1/4" make?
 
  Anyways,I measured mine for the .300 Win and it's 4" in length.

I believe they are designed to basically seat any 30 cal bullet in any 30 case that will fit in there.  I spose of you left a bigger gap at the bottom of the die, you could seat 300 WM in it fine.  I might be wrong, but doesn't this die seat based on the ogive of the bullet vs the tip like RCBS?

 I believe so. I know you can get custom seating stems for their new FTX bullets.

Thanks guys.
 
I also checked the Hornady site, but the seating die had me a bit stumped.
The neck sizing die I have is listed for the 300Win.
