You have to be cautious with the carbide rifle dies as you can stick a case in them same as steel if you don't lube. The reason the pistol carbide dies don't need lube is the carbide is just a ring so the contact area on the case is small. The rifle dies have the full case profile in them (the reason they are so expensive).
