I am not currently set up for 303, I was thinking of buying the Lee deluxe die set with the collet die, and the factory crimp die. I plan to neck size only, and just set the shoulder back when necessary.
Does anyone have any other favorites?

Ed I reckon that the Lee Dies are as good of place to start .I use RCBS for .303 & have lyman for the 25-303 ,but a lee dies for a number of other cals & have no complaints with them !

Thanks, Dave. I have RCBS for some calibers, got the Hornady new dimension for 8mm and actually prefer the Lee.

Hey Kurt.  I use the lee press and dies.  I love mine. I recommend it to anyone that is trying to get into reloading.  It's a great starter press.  But for you, beings how you already have a press, I'd go with whatever is cheapest, and works... i.e. the lee dies!!

That's what I thought, Eric.  I just wanted to make sure I got a neck-size only die.
and I understand the factory crimp die is very popular. I'll give a review when I receive them.

I bought the crimp die as well.  I really like it.
