    Anything with a Full Length sizer and seater. They all work fine.

    I've been using Lee dies for the last 20 years without any issues. I do use a small base for my target upper and any pick up range brass i get my hands on.

    I use an old set of CH dies I picked up used. One friend uses Lyman, another guy uses Lee. They all work fine.

    I switched to Forster a few years back and am very happy with them. Not a lot more
    money than rcbs or Hornady and near Redding quality. They are sized just a hair smaller
    than those three as well.
