Default Dies before the Buy?

Ever buy a set of dies before you even buy the gun you want them for? I was bidding on a .284 Winchester and did not get it, however, I went ahead and bought the dies long before the bidding was over. Arrogant old me just knew I would win the bidding. Not. I figure I'm not really out much and I will keep the dies. You don't see .284's for sale everyday, so I might just look at the gun as my holy grail to achieve maybe someday in the future. I bought a set of brand new RCBS dies in .284 off the auction sight for $14 plus shipping, so I made a good deal. I will just set them aside until the gun comes along.

It is always good to have extra dies.
You just never know what the future brings.
I have more dies than guns, but one day I may have both.
