You can get great dies if you know where to look. www.neiljones.com
makes some of the the best custom dies in the world and turn around is normally 30 days.
You can get them in FL shoulder bump (which no one else makes) and micro seater. Normally around $175 for the FL die and $100 for the BR micro seater. FL die is honed to fit your chamber exactly.
How many guys paid over $275 from a smith for standard FL die set (not bushing, much less shoulder bushings and not honed to that chamber) that the smith made? Bet a lot.
