Lee Dies

Lee dies in 22-250 AI are they any good at $24.00 for two die set? Redding I know is good but they cost $88.00 for a two die non -compitition set.
How does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?

Re: Lee Dies

The lee dies I have work great. They may not be as good as the redding comp dies or redding s dies but they work great for me. I have 3 sets of them and like them better than some of my RCBS dies.
Not that there is anything wrong with RCBS dies.
Guns and ammo, what more do we need?

I have been liking them more and more as I use them.No lube required [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] These are neck sizing only dies however.

Re: Lee Dies

Iron Worker,
The same here, I have used the Lee collet dies for my son's 308 Winch. and my first four shots will go in under 1/2", many times in the mid 0.3's. Many will degrade them but I'd be a thankless person if I wouldn't state my experience. I really like them!
This is on a Ruger M77 Varmint factory barrel.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!

Re: Lee Dies

I have used the collet dies in several different calibersand could not have been happier. All the rifles shot 1/2" or less, plus they are really user friendly.Great dies!!
