Howdy all, I am looking for 30 Rem dies if anyone knows where I could find them?

Looks like the normal outlets; Midway,Graf&Son,Buffalo Arms etc. have them out of stock. I use 30-30 dies and have not had any problems. I also use the Lee factory crimper for 30-30 as the last step. Saw this set on Fleabay,you will have to find the crimper separate.

You'll need a different shell holder. Also remember that 6.8spc also has the same base as 30 rem. brass. Just another option for you.
Thanks,
Roger

Thanks Gents, I found some on Reddings website but they were pricey. I had heard you could use 30-30 dies then I read a few sites were they said you could not. I should have waited for your response's here first but I went and bought the Redding ones. Roger, it was the one I was looking at on GB that I ended up getting, it looks better in person than in pictures, looking forward to shooting it this coming weekend.

Thanks to all, now where are those hard to find stripper clips??

I've had a set of dies back-ordered from Grafs for a couple of months now. I'd forgotten I'd ordered them until now.

hornady has stop production of there special dies to focus production on .223, .45 and the more common loads so if you guys are still wiating on dies it may be a long time from now

I forgot to post an update - the RCBS dies showed up from Grafs in mid-February.

Also, I found that like the .30 Remington AR, the 10mm Auto is also based on a cut-down .25-.30-.32 Remington case. Though the AR seems headed rapidly for obsolescence and the 10mm has never been popular, at least you can still buy brass for both...
