Favorite dies for the 57

Post by glock10mmman » 11 Jan 2010, 21:07

Im getting ready to buy some dies to start loading for my AR57 and was wondering what is everyones favorite set?

Im looking at the Lyman from Midway for around 60 bucks. Reviews are good however I have heard some bad things about the sizing die.

Thanks

Right after Redding. :laugh: Seriously, these are the delightful things we've bantered about forever. A trip to the Wiki would answer many a question.

Stay away from RCBS.

I love lee dies, my .300W dies are Redding - and those are awesome too, but I lucked into some Hornady custom grade 5.7 dies on the arfcom EE - they are su-weet! My buddy has the Lyman 5.7 dies and they seem to be just fine too.

I have Redding and Lee. Both work great.

I got my dies from midway...lyman for $60 and they work just fine, somewhere I read that you couldn't seat 40g v max's with the seater die but I don't have that problem, maybe that was from the first run of dies???

I have Redding dies and shell holder from Midway USA, they seem to work great, Redding has a nice decapper head that helps not stretch brass.
