Dies in a 550B

What type or brand of dies are best in a dillon 550b for reloading 10mm?

Whichever ones you want... There's probably no "Best" brand of dies...

I like the Redding Pro Series dies.. but I think Lee makes good dies as well.

Pretty much any die set using the standard threads will work. Depends on how much you want to spend. Each one has some features that make it a standout. Any of the carbide dies are pretty comparable in terms of durability. Lee is the value die; Redding is sort of spendy, the rest (RCBS, Hornady, Forester and Lyman) sort of fill out the middle.

If your planning on loading lead, then Dillon and Hornady are the easiest to clean.

If you want an unbreakable decap rod, then the Lee and Hornady designs use a collet design to lock in the decapper.

If you load different projectile profiles, Dillon has a slick changeover,

If you are loading on a single stage, Lyman has the best expander.

If you are new to this, consider getting a separate seater and crimper die. It makes adjustments much easier.

I own Redding, Dillon, Lee, and RCBS dies.
I think the Dillon ones are the best. The lee dies are hit and miss in my experience. The dillon dies have the most features but are more pricey.
I think I own 4 Lee due sets. One of them didn't work well at all. The other 3 worked fine.

If you expand with a die, (instead of a PTX) and load lead spend the very nominal amount on a Lyman 'M' die. Certainly worth the money.

Lee Sizer.
Dillon Powder and Expander in the Measure (DUH)
Redding Comp Seater
Dillon Crimp

That would be my favorite setup. Especially the Lee for the sizer and Redding for the Seating.

I'm so confused. Screw it, I'm going back to using this!

I don't even have my favorite setup. But, for me shooting lead I would want a Lee sizer and everything else Dillon.

IF loading on a 550B, tough to beat the Dillon dies, but they will all work.
