    Reloading dies - are they interchangable between presses?

    I have a selection of RCBS and Redding Dies and equipment for .243 and .308, but just wondered are these dies a standard thread, therefore interchangable with all other presses such as Lyman / Hornady / Lee etc? Are there any presses that are a b****rd size that should be avoided ?

    I do belive they are. I have a Dillon press and the Lee dies fit mine. Im sure some of the reloading guru's on here will be able to confim the other makes

    I have Lee and RCBS dies on a Lyman press. It appears that the thread sizes are standard. atb Tim

    Most manufacturers standardised on 7/8th x14 thread size many years ago. If you look long and hard enough you will occasionally come across Lynx (Australian) dies which have a thread size only suitable for their presses.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Thank you for all the replies, that seems to clear it up. I was a bit put-off that I might have to buy new dies as well !! Not the cheapest of things!
