Any loader other than the SD not use standard dies?

The question gets asked here quite often 'will X die work in Y loader'. Other than the Dillon Square Deal does any other loader NOT use standard dies?
Molan Labe!

Lyman All-American, Tru-Line, or Tru-Line Jr. In fact, all the old Lymans, I think.
Favor the X.

Only if you plan on reloading 50MBG. That takes special dies and press. Thats the only other one that I can think of.

Didn't Lyman also make one of the old "tong" or plier style tools that took an interchangeable small sizing die?
