Die set production...why a shortage?
I have been trying to get a 4 die set of Lee 40 S&W dies for several months with no luck. Most of the big retailers gave me a date that the die sets will be back in stock and when the date arrived, they still didn't have it. I called up Lee precision dies main number and talked to a person in production and they said they are sending out trucks every day to all their venders with die sets. I told the person about my lack of success in finding ANY vender with the die set and asked for a name of ANY vender that had been sent a Lee Deluxe 40 S&W die set and she stopped returning my emails. I wish I knew where they were going. I do know ebay and gunbroker has them for sale by many private scalpers, but that's not in my budget.
