I have both. Lyman is an old company that has been around since the start of metallic cartridges. Lyman dies are more traditional while Lee has tried some new stuff. I dont think that you can go wrong with either.

Seems to me that back in the good ole days that Lyman was one of the First to come out with individually boxed Carbide sizers. My 38/357 and 44 Spsc/Mag have been at work since the late 60's..Thats got to say something for them...Dick

I agree. I have die sets from both companies and they haven't worn out or broken since the '60s. Quantrill
