I think so (RCBS GM seater). I really don't like feeding pills from the underside of a conventional seater. It's an exercise in making sure your fingers don't get pinched and you always have the issue of....'Do I have it started straight' whic is a non issue with the top loading RCBS seater.
I'd like to see RCBS do the same seater for handgun loads. Setting say a 150 grain jacketed hollow point in 44 mag is an exercise in being careful because there isn't a whole bunch of room on the underside between getting the pill in the bellmouth (brass) and engaging the die itself.
They are't cheap but you can buy one complete seater die (in your favorite caliber) and get the seater plugs and shell holders for any caliber and use the same body.
What exactly is Neolube used for? That sounds like something worthwhile too.
