That's why loading manuals are Important. They will give you accurate load data and components to use. Die instructions will usually only tell you how to set up your dies.Thank you guys. I will have to look when I get back home. I just went by the instructions that came with the Lee dies. And new that it had to be at least small rifle primers.
Manuals - the two that I would suggest that you should get are the latest Lyman (#50) and the latest Hornady manuals. And don't just use them for the recipes, read the first 1/3 of the book that tells about reloading. Everything you need to know will be in there.I will invest in one. Do u prefer one over another.
I wouldn't depend on the loading data from a Lee Die Set. I've found the data from them to be contradictory and inaccurate. You need to invest in at least one GOOD reloading manual, and follow that data. If I only had just one reloading manual for reference, it would be the Lyman manual. Don't rely on that Lee data - and certainly don't rely or trust data or information gleaned from the internet.Thank you guys. I will have to look when I get back home.

Do you mean to say your getting into reloading and got the tools before the manual? Did you get your driver's license before you read the study manual? You know this is exactly why so many guys come up with some of the questions they come up with. By pass the manual and just ask someone on the computer. No idea who he is or what he knows but it's off the computer.I will invest in one. Do u prefer one over another.
I've gone through all of my reloading manuals, and of those which mention the .300 Blackout at all, all recommend the small rifle primer. None suggested that you need a magnum primer. As to which book is best, I find the Hornady to be the most useful, and the Lyman the least helpful. I will not use Lee data at all, unless I'm using my 50 year old Lee Loader (my first reloading "equipment").The truth is that I have been reloading for awhile now. But just started with my 300 blackout. The other day I was reading how some people where using magnum primers. Just wanted to get some opinions. That’s all. Not a lecture that I seam you be getting b
