Which brand of dies do you prefer?

32-20 said: Just curious...Currently I load my 9mm Luger with LEE dies. I think that I would prefer RCBS carbide dies. Having said that, I thought I might poll you fine folks as to which brand of dies that you prefer for hand loading pistol cartridges... :nest:

bl*rgon said: I have RCBS and Lee. The rcbs are a well made die for the $$, but I have had no problems with the lee either. I have no need for high-end dies...

D*rtyOldSix said: I Love Lee dies when it comes to handgun cartridges,...But not for rifle cartridges, there I use Redding, RCBS and Hornady.

l*och said: I've only been reloading for a year or so and started out with Lee. All I needed to do was hold a Redding die in my hand and new it was more my speed. Maybe it doesn't function any better than the Lee, but I don't care.

T*x Critter said: I've had decapping pins break on some dies but have never had any problems with my Lee dies. (Reloading since 1987.)

P*ulinski said: I like RCBS and Dillon, Lee aren't bad either.

32-20 said: WoW!! Thanks fellas! Keep the comments coming... Cheers!! - Dan

Pbl*tzz said: I use Lyman, RCBS, Lee, CH4D dies. CH4D are great but expensive....

B said: I use RCBS, though for no particular reason other than their outstanding customer service.

V*ener 7mm said: I've only been reloading a few months now and have had no issues with RCBS

B*omer686 said: The new dillon: outstanding dies.... available in carbide, easy to clean without messing with your settings clean and incorportae a stuck case remover. Can't go wrong with them. Great gear, great service and fantastic, no BS warranty. Regards,

*nagoth said: Love the Lee dies, albeit they're the only ones I've tried :p But I think Lee holds patents on their dies that even Dillon licenses....so, thats a good sign.

M*r said: I only reload bottleneck rifle cases,and use mostly Redding,with a few RCBS. Mur

C*eZer said: I use Hornady for now but most likely will get RCBS carbide ones and Lee resizing die. Just yesterday during a match I was pointed out that Lee resizing die does great job going futher down on empty case.

F*ssteel said: I use the Forster Co-Ax press so I thought it would make sense to buy Forster die sets. I have many sets of RCBS as well. FS
