    To date I have only reloaded pistol rounds. I use a Hornaday LNL. There are a set of Lee Deluxe Dies for .22-250 for sale I would consider buying if They will play nice with my press>:D

    Yea or nay?

    I have a LNL and use Lee dies. They work just fine.

    Make sure you lube the cases!

    RCBS dies work with my Lee press....Just about any dies will work with any press as long as the thread is the same. If I am not mistaken.

    All dies today are 7/8"/14 TPI, and any brand die will work in any brand press.

    The only exception might be Dillon & Forster Co-Ax presses, and it's a lock ring size thing, not a thread size thing.
    Oh, and dies for the .50 BMG caliber are 1-1/2"-12TPI.

    You get the Lee Collet neck size die with the Deluxe set, and if you have a bolt or single shot 22-250 you will want to neck size to be able to get the best performance out of your rifle.

    Not all rifles shoot more accurate with neck sized cases, but most will.

    IMO the deluxe set is worth the $$$$.

    there is no reason that they would not work. i think most, if not all modern presses have the standard 7/8" x 14tpi threads cut in the press itself, or the die quick change adapters. as for the dies themselves, i have 7 sets, and they all work great. the only thing that some people do not like is the o ring lock rings. they are great if you change loads, but if you have one load, and only use that load, they can change position when screwing them in.
