Default No RCBS 6.5 Jap dies?

Ive been looking for a set of 6.5 Jap dies, and I just thought it was weird that RCBS makes 7.7 Jap dies but no longer make 6.5 Jap... Why would this be? It just seem strange that they make dies for one Arisaka and not the other....

I really like the RCBS die sets, but I am having trouble finding 6.5x50 die sets made by anybody but Lee and even their pretty expensive!

Midway has them in stock.

Don't think you will like the price though.

Midway also has Hornady dies for about 1/2 the price of the RCBS set.
