    I use a dillion 500 and most of my dies are dillion with some others for certain caliburs but Im going to start laoding for a 40 s&w and I cant sea find them local. Are there any local dealers for dillion? Is there other dies that you love to use in a dillion for the 40 s&w that you could sugest and where to get?

    I prefer the Hornady sizing die as it resizes almost down to the extractor groove. Dillon powder funnel for case expansion and charging. Lyman "M"-die if you want a separate expansion die. If using jacketed/plated bullets, I prefer the Hornady bullet seating die. Dillon for seating messy cast bullets, though the Hornady inserts can be removed without removing the die body from the toolhead. Dillon taper crimp is as good as any.

    RCBS dies will fit... those are my preferred dies, I use them on the 550, 650 and 1050.
