Carbide 50AE dies?

Hey guys,

I recently picked up a Desert Eagle in 50AE and have been looking into loading and reloading the rounds. I have been able to find 50AE die sets from Lee and RCBS, but have been unable to find any carbide dies. Anyone out there know of a company that manufactures them?

Also, anyone have any words of wisdom about reloading 50AE?

Here is a site you might if you haven't been there yet:

As far as carbide dies, it may be just a demand thing and not worth the production investment to the major outfits. The case design in suitable for them though.

I also checked CH/4D and they don't have carbides either but I believe they will TiN coat a sizer die for you for a moderate fee.
