REDDING 219 DONALD WASP (SHORT) DLX SET 3-DIE D
Redding dies are made of the finest alloy steels obtainable and machined on Hardinge Super- Precision lathes capable of holding the tightest tolerances in the industry. This guarantees that they will produce ammunition that will properly fit any standard (SAAMI) chamber, regardless of action type. To maintain tolerances and guarantee that your dies will last a lifetime, all Redding dies are heat treated in atmospherically controlled furnaces. Finally, your dies are hand polished for smooth, flawless functioning, go through final inspection, and are ultrasonically cleaned and packaged. The die box is a handy cartridge loading block and storage package. Inside is a spare decapping pin, hex wrench, and even a place for your shellholder (sold separately). All Redding dies use the industry standard 7/8-14 threaded bodies. Deluxe die sets for bottleneck cases include a full length sizing die, seating die and neck sizing die.

219 Donaldson Wasp (Short) 3 Die Set

Every Redding product I have is first class. This die set is equally perfect.
There are 2 variations of the Wasp:
“Donaldson later lengthened the neck by about 1/32" so as not to encroach on powder capacity when using a graphite wad behind the bullet. This resulted in a case length of 1.750". This final design is preserved in a drawing on page 224 of Twenty-Two Caliber Varmint Rifles.
“During the 1960s, an even longer version appeared as a result of measurements referenced from the front of the rim instead of the rear. This design has a case length of 1.813" (1.750" plus 0.063" rim thickness). The same error has occurred on a number of other popular wildcats.” - Wikipedia
This die set is for the case with an overall length of 1.750. Measure!
