I bought a used set of RCBS dies on EBay. I don't remember what I paid for them exactly but it was somewhere around 25 or 30 bucks with shipping. they are old but they work well, very well.
Like any rifle case (bottleneck case) be sure to lube. Without the case lube you will create a nightmare. I use the RCBS pad and case lube2 from RCBS. Works great.
I agree with the statement above, most die sets available today are pretty good.
