Mixing different kinds of dies?

I just bought a hornady neck sizer for a 7mm. I was going to buy the full length sizer and seater but they are out of stock. so I am wonder if I should just wait for them to come back in stock or should I just buy another brand?

Thanks

    Your rig nor cartridge will know or care what color box your various dies came out of.

    Actually, there's a lot to be said for mixing the colors of those die boxes and other related equipment. Trying to color co-ordinate your reloading equipment will not only prevent you from getting the best stuff out there, it'll also raise questions about the validity of your "man card."

    Real men DO NOT color co-ordinate!

    There are many reloaders who mix dies especially benchrest guys. They want the dies they think are best for each step in the reloading cycle. For me, standard RCBS rifle dies are just fine but I'm not in competition.

    I think today I'm going to buy a few boxes of Lapua brass based on the strength of that post alone. As if I needed another reason.

    Too funny
