Hairtrigger, what kind of success have you had with the 7615? I bought mine in 2009 but I really have not done much with it.
Thanks for all of the replies. I am using RCBS FL dies for my .223 loads. I have Hornady dies for my 7-08 and was given a really old set of Savage dies for my .308.
Again, I am a newbie, but so far, I like the Hornady dies best, just because they have the sliding bullet guide that centers them in the seating die. This is helpful for getting non boat-tail bullets started.
