    Dillon vs Lee dies in a 550

    There seems to be quite a bit of debate online about this and was just wondering what the opinion was on this forum. I'm partial to Lee dies. On a single stage they just seem to work with minimal...

    I apply a light coat of grease on every external metal surface and then wipe the gun down to remove the excess.
