Which set of dies to order with 1050.

Recommended Posts

I am getting ready to order a new 1050. My understanding is that the 1050 comes with a set of dies. Whatever set of dies comes with the press will be a duplicate.

My question is between 9mm and 223 which would be the more useful Dillon die set vs. The Lee sets I already have.

Opinions would be appreciated.

The dillon dies should be carbide so either may be an upgrade. What kind of dies are the Lee's?

Lee pistol dies are carbide, 223 are steel. Dillon dies would be the same in that regard unless I paid extra for the carbide 223.

Suggest Dillon Carbide. My rifle ran great with Dillon dies. One of my friends did not would not quite chamber. I would suggest on a 1050

Dillon carbide station one, if you have issues put the Lee sizing die in station two as it is just a little tighter. No issues using the Lee sizing

die in my friends rifle ran 100%. There is a high chance that you won't have issues with just Dillon dies.

I would see what the extra cost of 223 carbide dies are and get them if it's not too expensive

Just remember that you still have to lube the cases with carbide dies.

This is why I was planning to go with steel dies if I chose the 223. What is the advantage of carbide if I am lubing the cases either way?

No question get the 1050 with the 223 dies installed. I find the Lee pistol dies to be great. I have found the Dillon 223 dies to be the best.

Carbide are designed for commercial loaders.

The carbide dies will probably outlast you.
