Can't help, but price 380 dies on evilbay and you will feel better. They have been running ~90.00 lately.

I finally got my hands on a set of hornady .44 mag dies. Then I buy the wrong darn powder:banghead:. I just can't win sometimes.

Here's two more to try...be sure to call first as I've tried the online thing with both of them and it took awhile. Both took good care of me when supply was low.

Midway had Redding 45 ACP Carbide 3 die sets in stock as recently as last week for $61.00. If I am going to pay $50 for the Lee, I'll pony up the extra $11 and get the Redding instead.

Also, you can mix and match dies from different mfg. from ebay, or local gunshows... you can build a workable set that way...

:what:
WHY did I give away my 380 dies when I sold my 380 Bersa? :banghead:

I sold my .380 some years back, but I stilll have my RCBS dies. Same for 32.20, except those dies are Redding.

People who are paying those prices must want them right now real bad. Not that I have never overpaid for something, I have.

Primers and powder have been difficult to get lately, but this is the first time I heard about loading die shortages. I assume that is a message being sent, but possibly I'm to slow to realize the meaning. :confused:
