Hi,

Anybody know if these are good dies that can be used for the K-31 rifle?

Pacific made excellant dies, that's part of why Hornady bought them out. In fact, Pacific sort of designed our now common presses and the 7/8"x14 dies we use.

Some dummies didn't want anything to do with Pacific's "chromed" dies for fear the chrome would flake off and damage cases but they didn't chrome the interiors at all. So, some great dies were forgotten by the market.

Don't know if anything is critical about K-31 rifles but doubt it.

Also,

Will the dies work in any modern press?

For sure. Pacific MADE the "modern press."

I can't answer the question about the dies, but here is a good read about loading the swiss 7.5x55
