    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.

    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...

    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:
