For those who may not know, if you have reloading dies but want to step up to carbide dies all you need is a carbide sizing die. You can size .38 spl and .357 with just a .38 die by adjustng the depth to which the die works the case. You can reload .38 S&W, no this ain't .38 spl, with .38 spl dies by just sizing the mouth area of the case. Lots of pieces can be used on different cartridge typoe but same caliber ammo. I have used a .45 ACP tapper crimp die on my .45 Colt for several decades now. You can normally, on a bolt action rifle load, use .308 dies to load .30-06. There's lots of other swaps you can make to save yourself some money. BUT do try a couple of your mix and match loads before loading a bunch'a rounds. It may taking some jerk leg engineering to get things right. AND the load that fits just fine in your gun may not fit your buddy's gun.
