I would just buy dies for your press. Something that I finally did, that I should have done years ago after years of toiling with the little RCBS Balance Powder Scale. I purchased a Lyman 1200 Scale. Man did it cut down on the time of measuring powder that was always a tedious and time consuming task. The scale is programmable to memory for many different rounds you load and you just select the round you have preset and the unit sets to that correct powder charge. And when close automatically trickles powder granules out of the tube to get the correct amount of charge. This since if I am going to spend good money on casings, primers, powder and other items that are at a premium. I want the best and most accurate ammunition I can make. Not just ammo that throws the round somewhere on the target.
Some Lee Dies have problems with the Hornady press on some the lock ring are too thick. I would recommend the RCBS Dies or the Hornady. You might have to use "one" spacer ring on the RCBS? But they are cheap and usually come in a pack of 10 if you do not have any spacers with your press.
Also, the ammunition for the 30-30 has "came a long way" regarding the tube fed model guns. Hornady makes the new Flex Tipped bullets for the 30-30 tube fed guns that will not detonate the primer on the round in front of them. And they have better ballistic than previous rounds for hunting and what ever.
But as stated I would go with your press and a good powder measure unit.
