    Yes, you are right: my die sets for the 44 and 454 are carbide (or similar hardened material). IMO, they are well worth the extra bucks over the cost of standard dies. They work flawlessly, with no lube. I was not aware that anyone made carbide dies for rifle...is that for real? I have a few Hornady dies for rifle, but none are carbide, and cases must be lubed. It's kinda a drag getting the gunk off the cases after re-sizing...

      You can also get a can of hornady One Shot case lube and spray the cases on all four sides at a downward angle, making sure a small amount of lube gets into the case neck. This will solve your problems with the expander.

      One Shot works fine for this and it won't contaminate your powder or primers.

        I also like One Shot and have used it for years but you must get it inside the neck or you will soon be amoung the guys that hate it!
