Today I started fiddling with 9mm for the first time. When I decided to set up for it, I picked Lee carbide dies. I wanted to see if they were any better than Hornady. Now that it's way too late to send them back, I see that these dies are short. You have to screw them WAY down into the locking rings to make them work on a Hornady progressive. The answer other people have come up with is to move the locking rings to the bottoms of the dies. This is a pretty bad solution. It makes changing dies a real pain. I'm going to sell these dies and get something else. This is too aggravating. I have never had any problems with Hornady dies, but I thought I'd ask: is there something better out there that isn't TOO SHORT?
