What is the consensus (oh, God, there's another corporate buzzword) on the Lyman 4 die pistol set? I want to use the Lyman Multi-Expander which I believe is included in the set and could save money by taking this route.

For every caliber I manufacture I always have at least one set of 4-die Lymans.

I use the Lyman 4 dies sets for all my handgun cartiridge reloading. You'll especially like the expander die with the powder drop through feature. I mount the powder measure directly to the top of the die on my T-Mag turret press. This setup puts out large quantities of handgun ammo in short order; only a more expensive progressive machine, such as Dillion's, would be faster.

I still prefer Redding dies for my rifle cartridges as I measure each powder charge with a scale and production rate is less important than precision.
