Has anyone tried these? I heard there easier on your brass than the Lyman m dies.

I use them exclusively for cast bullet load in bottleneck rifle rounds. very easy on the brass, no shaving, and seem to affect the bullet less than standard dies. I've used 4-5 different die sets for the .32-20, and the cowboy dies are by far the best. They work well in the .30-30 as well.

Your header made me think of the newspaper announcements that the Marlborough cowboy dies.

"I heard there easier on your brass than the Lyman m dies."

We can hear some amusing things if we listen long enough. Of course there are no "M" dies as such, it's the M expanders that do that work while the sizers and seaters are unchanged.

Great product; I used them for two Colt Anaconda's featuring Colt's giant, archaic chambers and throats.
