Lee dies are by far the best value for the money for people who reload as a hobby. I would order Lee dies again should I need to reload for a new caliber.

I have reloaded for years and have used 4 or 5 other brands. I find Lee's every bit as good as any I have ever used. I have not, however, used any competition dies (too expensive). I know that Lee dies are good and most are cheaper than the other brands. I like the factory crimp dies and try to always get them for the calibers I use. The only thing I can recommend is to buy a carbide die if it is available in the caliber you want because you don't have to lube them. I don't believe they are available in necked cartridges, however.

I have used the Lee dies for sometime now and have never had a problem. They consistently make accurate ammo for all of my rifles. They come with a shell holder and reloading data, which you will have to buy extra with other dies. The only dies I own are Lee and I can get M.O.A. accuracy in all my rifles with Lee.

Well you picked a honey to start with! Lee dies will work fine. You'll need to trim well and get something to remove the military primer crimp on fired brass. I use a pilot bit on a drill press. Don't use Rem 6.5 primers, use 7.5 or CCI.
In pistol format, if available, get the Lee Carbide 4 die set which includes expander/powder charger and the factory crimp.
For rifle, I would suggest the Lee Deluxe Rifle 3 die set which includes sizing for full and neck. Just add a few bucks to get the rifle die Powder Charger and a Factory Crimp in addition to run on your 4 stage setup.
