Yes, all modern dies are the same thread and will fit your Redding press.

The dies of any brand will fit nearly every common press, including the T7. The only thing to be aware of when you mix brands is that the accessories may not attach properly. For instance, I am not sure that the various powder measures fit different brand dies. You should definitely check out which measure will fit the dies you plan to use. Lee pistol dies come with a power through expander die, and you can mount the Perfect Powder Measure or Auto Disk (Deluxe) on these dies. Likewise, for rifle cartridges you need one of the Lee universal rifle powder through dies.

I believe the threads of my RCBS Uniflow mated OK wit the Lee powder die but it was too top heavy for the Lee press. But I would not count on a different brand of powder measure working with your dies unless you verify it before purchasing. If you measure powder off the press then you shouldn't have any problems using Lee dies in a Redding press.

You probably know that the T7 turret has so many holes you can mount 2-3 sets of dies on it if you want, so you don't HAVE to buy a different turret for every caliber.
