    I recall somewhere reading, I think it was in Lee literature that they make dies for some other brand of die besides "Lee". Does anyone know who that may be?

    I have never heard that but did see a TV show where they toured the RCBS plant. They said on that show that RCBS made dies for another company but wouldn't say who.

    I would not be surprised if both Lee and RCBS do not make their own dies. I would not be surprised if they are made by the same sub contractor.

    But, I would not be surprised if I was totally wrong.

    WOW This would be a good time to start a false interweb rumor now wouldn't it.:evil: Naw I just cant do that.:D I am willing to bet that someone does make a die or two for some company other than themselves. Why waste your equipment by letting it sit idle when it could be working and give a faster payback on your investment. I would do it if I owned one of these companies.:cool:

    Standing order, to be observed by all concerned personnel: If you don't hear a rumor by 0900 hours, it is your assignment to start one!!!!!!!!!

    Learn something every day. EGW undersize dies are made by Lee. Even says so on the EGW web site.
