    Someone told me a company (Forester, IIRC),is making a carbide resizing die for Rifle cases. It eliminates the need lube cases. Aanyone have any info or personal experience with these dies? Thanks.

    It doesn't keep you from needing lube. They Are for commercial reloading

    Dillon makes carbide sizing dies in .223 & .308.

    As noted, you still have to lube the cases.

    Their intent is for use in high-volume reloading where steel dies would wear out sooner.

    Try NOT lubing a couple of rifle cases sometime or forgetting to do it. I've "heard" that it takes a lot of time to get the case back out.
