I’m looking for a set of carbide dies for .400 CorBon. I know Tombstone used to make them prior to going out of business. Anybody know where I can find a set?

Sorry, the ones I've seen are steel only, no carbide or Ti_Nitride. I'm not sure why.

At one time Tombstone made a set of carbide dies but unfortunately no longer. They were expensive too. I've been using Redding dies since 400 C-B was introduced. Even bought a Corbin cannalure tool but it's really not needed if you get a good solid crimp with your dies. (The Redding do an outstanding job there too).

Bottom line is that Mal H is spot on... no carbide dies available new.
