    Have never seen them before, repair center sounds right. Sure would love to own them, nice assortment. You are a lucky man, if you use RCBS dies.

    They were available to anyone in the mid 1980's.

    Iíve seen similar sets from Lyman (in an orange box, of course) as well as these RCBS green ones. It would be handy to be able to reach into one and get a needed part for a special app or to replace one that broke, but the cost of maintaining such a set would probably be beyond the need or ability of any but the most rabid reloader. In a well equipped gun shop though, it would be an excellent resource. The one Lyman box I got many years ago had been severely picked through and not replenished, so it was really more a curiosity than a useful resource. It looked way cool, though!
