I have several sets of Redding competition dies and since I switched over to a Forster COAX press, they no longer fit in the green boxes. MTM makes a storage box but will not accommodate the competition dies. Any suggestions?

Wrap them in oiled kraft paper and slip them in capped 1.5" PVC tubes. You ought to be able to do this for about $10.

I use the MTM boxes and turn my dies upside down.

You need to be careful using PVC. When you cut it it out gasses chlorine gas and is quite/very corrosive. I punched some holes in a pipe using a end mill and the next day the collet was rusted. Every piece of metal with end 3" of the cutter rusted. If you do use pvc make sure you coat your dies in a good inhibitor to prevent any rust.

My Redding Seater in .308 Win fits in mine.

Swipe a couple of your wife's Tupperware containers. Better yet, send her to a Tupperware party with directions to pick you up some specific sized boxes. They seal well and are stackable. :)
