I use the RCBS carbide dies with the Lee factory crimp die. If I were buying it again I would have just got the Lee dies. Using the factory barrel I had a lot of brass split lengthwise where once I switched to the LWD barrel that issue is gone. It is much better supported so no more bulges. I lose my brass long before they ever wear out. I have tested my load in 10 test brass to 30 reloads and they are still fine. No noticable stretch with my current setup. I get the same results in my 40 loads. You will find Longshot powder to give maximum performance with minimal pressure. CCI-350 primers work well too with this powder.
