Here is a link to the dies. http://www.midwayusa.com/product/789205/rcbs-carbide-sizer-die-270-ren They claim there isn't any need for case lube, where as the dillon website for thier dies claim you do. :confused:Was just wondering if anyone has any experiance or guidance on the issue. I'm pretty new to reloading but the fella with the press, and 30+ yrs experiance said he would love to have a set if it ment he wouldn't have to lube them........Thanks for your help....Matt

that is for .270 Ren, a straight-walled, rimmed cartridge
not .270 Winchester
Another interesting wildcat is the much more recent .270 REN. Charles Rensing and Jim Rock designed this little cartridge specifically for NRA Hunter Pistol Silhouette competition. It is based on the .22 Hornet case necked-up to a straight wall configuration. It is reloaded with 90-110 grain bullets with velocities in the 1600-1875 fps vicinity. Recoil is very low, and Merrill and Thompson/Center have offered guns in .270 REN. A T/C Contender Carbine or Encore single shot rifle in .270 REN would make an interesting and unusual alternative to a .25-20, .30 Carbine, or .32-20 rifle.
but, yeah, if you wanna reload .270 Ren, you wouldn't need lube with that die.
