I told a friend of mine I'd load up some 30-30 for him, and let me tell you, it's been a nightmare. I thought I had dies, but I couldn't find them anywhere, so I had to go out and buy some. I went to the local Scheels, but they were out, so I had them special order some for a good price ($25) The dies came in a half a week later, and I went to pick them up, only to find that they had ordered the Lee RGB dies, which do NOT come with a shellholder. I went to pick up a shellholder, but the only one they had was the RCBS, which was $6, and at that point, I'm into these new dies for over $30, and I could just order the 3-die set online with free shipping for that and get a crimp die, so I return the dies and go order some from Amazon where I can get free shipping. A few days later, my new dies arrive, and I set up and get started. Halfway in, I read through the directions for setting up the die and find out the bullet seater doesn't crimp! Not only that, but the third die in my set isn't a crimp die, but a neck sizing die, so my die set has no way to crimp a bullet, which is absolutely VITAL to 30-30 reloading, at least if you want to shoot more than 2 rounds! Disgusted, I return those, which is a hassle, since they're online, and finally order the PROPER set of dies with the Lee FCD for the THIRD time from Midway, where I have to pay shipping. They arrived today, and I start loading. I had chosen the Hornady FTX 160gr bullets, since they're a spitzer shape and if my buddy doesn't end up wanting 100 rounds, I can probably work up some plinker loads for my .308 and get rid of them, not to mention the ballistic advantage of the FTX is better anyway. I get my powder charges set and screw the seater die all the way in, only to find that even all the way in, the bullets aren't deep enough - They're barely touching the crimp groove! My reaction: Thoroughly annoyed, I run them through the Lee FCD anyway. I'll have to call Hornady in the morning and see if I can get a replacement seater plug. I heard on another forum that thye give them away for free, so at least I won't have to sink any more money into this project.
