Is this a complete set of M1 carbine dies?

    I bought these RCBS M1 carbine dies a while ago ($3 I think), and I haven’t been able to determine if they have all their parts.

    Do any of you know if they have everything?

    Thanks.

    looks like it. looks like size and deprime on left, powder die in the middle and bullet seater on the right. use lube when you use them even if they are carbide. it looks rusty there and your first few may be rough.

    Thanks guys for the info, I probably could’ve found it somewhere but I have 56k so it would’ve taken a looong time.

    I don’t have a 30 carbine, I just figured for $3 I couldn’t pass it up.

    It’s kind of dried rusty grease, it’s not as bad as it looks, I’ll take some carb cleaner to it and do some scrubbing and see what I can do.

    You do know that's how it starts?

    I'll just get the dies. Or, I'll just pick up this here brass...

    The next thing you know, you're buying a rifle!

    This can be a serious, life-long problem. I recommend you put the dies down and back away while you still have control of your actions. :)
