I'm using a combination of Redding and Lee.  I sent Lee a case/bullet combo for my 257 Accumark and they built me a custom die. Not sure if it works but it makes me feel good.  :) It will shoot 100 grain Nosler BT's in a ragged cloverleaf if this old man can hold it together.  :o

I use RCBS dies for my .300 Weatherby.  I have both FL and a Neck Size dies, but mostly use the Neck Size die. 

Most of my dies for other cartridges are also RCBS, but I also use die sets from Hornady, Lee, Pacific, and Herter's.

I decided to go with Lee FL dies for my 300Wby. We'll see how they work. Must get a neck sizing die in the near future also.

I have RCBS, Hornady and some 1980ish Weatherby Dies.  I find the RCBS and the Hornady have .004-.006 round out so i Keep going back to the Weatherby Dies, 001-.002 consistently.

Just my .02.....

Using LEE dies for my 300 and RCBS for my 257. Think I prefer the LEE dies personally.

Cheers

Same here. RCBS for 257 and Lee for 300.
After using the Lee does for a few months now I like them much better than RCBS.

Mostly RCBS,CH,Lee,and Redding
Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I try to avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

Everyone has a photographic memory.Some just don't have film.

I use RCBS resizing dies for my 270 WM and  340 WM. I have Weatherby slideing collet seating dies for both rifles, run out is 0.001. Beautiful!! GJ

I use RCBS dies exclusively and haven't had any issues with them other than a screw up on my part once.  One time I put a .300 Weatherby case in the press to resize and didn't realize it wasn't lubed and it got stuck, which is completely my fault. 
Nothing is better than a Weatherby, big bore magnum, or a Colt.

Chris,I've said many times that RCBS should put a stuck case removing kit in every starter press kit that they sell.I've had stuck cases that were lubed get stuck.Just probably not enough on them.What the bad part is your starting a job and you get shut down completely when that case gets stuck.It's such a cheap and easy to use product.

I agree with you in that would be a great idea.  I can't complain a bit, it was my fault and only happened once in the tens of thousands of rounds I've loaded over the years so I guess I'm doing pretty good.
