Although my set of Redding .30-06 dies suffice for two M1 Garands, seven versions of "03 Springfield, two Model 1917s, an Ohio Ordnance Works (semi-auto only) BAR Model 1918A3, and a 1950s vintage Winchester Model 70, they would not size a cartridge case enough to chamber in this BLR. That was even with the die turned down enough to firmly contact the shell holder.
At the time, I thought about what a perfect boar rig that .358 BLR was and resolved to get my hands on one someday.

Fortunately there is still one rifle in this class, and it's a good one, the Browning BLR. Judging from the variety of models in the catalog, the number I see on dealer shelves and feedback from dealers, the BLR is doing very well.
