Most modern brands will interchange - Lee and RCBS being two. Check if you're not sure, but in this case - be assured - they will work.

RCBS dies on a LEE press?

YES !
Until recently, Lee dies were shorter than "standard" dies.
I have a 35 year old LYMAN Spar-T press that requires a smaller locking ring than the round ones. The Lee locking rings work fine...
