If we were to ask you what kind of dies you started out with, there’s a good chance you’d respond with some caliber of LEE dies. Gavin, with Ultimate Reloader, takes us back through the LEE Pistol Dies, like it’s the first time.
“My very first set of reloading dies were LEE 44 Magnum pistol dies that came with the LEE Pro-1000 press that I started out with. Since then, I’ve acquired many more sets of LEE dies ranging from 30-06 to 9mm to 45 ACP to 357 SIG and quite a few in between. LEE Pistol Dies (technically handgun dies, but I’ll use the term “pistol” to cover both autoloader and revolver here) are some of the most popular dies because of their combination of features and value. In this post, I’ll cover the different die sets that LEE offers, compare features, and I’ll even show a demonstration of setting up some dies on a progressive reloading press!”

You’re kidding. You don’t show the setup of the powder drum or adjustment of bullet seating and crimp?!?!?? Sheesh.
First dies were Lyman 270 Winchester in 1964. Now have numerous Lee dies and continue to buy them. Really like collet dies, bullet seating die, and crimping die. Good stuff!
I’ve been reloading for 35 years and Lee dies are the only ones I use for everything..
