7.62 Nagant. Soon I'll have a set for 30-06, 45 ACP, and .223. I wouldn't mind having a set for 7.62x54R if brass wasn't so pricy. :mad:

Rifle dies in order
6.5x55 SE (Hands down my favorite)
270 Win (The one I really miss)
270 WSM (my railgun)
7mm-08 (finicky as all getup)
308 Win (My pretty gun, FN Winchester 70 FTW)
30-06 (The Workhorse)

Handgun dies.
9mm (my CCW)
40 S&W (Because Longshot and 180gr XTPs are so much fun)
44 Mag (Don't own that one but reload it for a good friend)

I used to buy RCBS dies and they still serve me well, but nowadays I buy Lee, just as good, cost less, and include a shell holder that I was always trying to track down with RCBS.

I have to disagree. Lee dies are not near the quality of RCBS. They cost less for a reason. Lee dies just don't come close to RCBS, Redding, or Lyman. I have a few Lee dies that I do use, but I also have been gradually replacing them with higher quality dies. Just try to sell a set of Lee dies at a gun show. They will only bring a third of what higher quality dies will bring, if you can sell them at all.

That is bs/brand snobbery, there is nothing wrong with Lee dies, they produce the same end product, they simply don't have the nice finish, fancy case etc. I don't know anyone who has had a problem with a Lee or any other die not doing the job for which it is intended. They cost less because less machining is done to the outside of the die to make it look pretty, the inside is the part which matters.

A bud told me a long time ago that he wanted to be able to load most all popular calibers. That way when(not if) civil functions cease to operate then he and his buds can "continue to march". Can you just imagine how very difficult it will be to get components when there is no or sporadic electricity to run a world controlled by computers. Chaotic will be an understatement.
