    New Lee Die Boxes

    I recently bought some NOE powder drop expanding dies and needing a set of Lee's charge die kit. I was surprised to see that It cam in a nice new to me black hinged 2 die box. After looking at lee's sight to get more, I found they are also offering a 3 die box as well. I like these better than their ones with clear lids, but that's just me.

    These men and their hypnotized followers call this a new order. It is not new. It is not order.

    The round ones worked for me, I could even see through them and know everything is in there without opening them up by looking through the top.

    I have enough problems with dropping things, I have never been a fan of Lee's slip fit parts. I guess there is nothing stopping them from making a clear version as well, that would be nice.

    I just noticed that the 3 die box I pictured is for Lee's Large series dies, like the 50 BMG.

    in my mailbox to day was a new set of dies direct from lee. this die set box is a new design also it has winged tabs on the sides of the clear cover. none of my other lee die sets have this new style box. and I will ad that they are very good looking dies. there are no machine marks like on ones ive had for years. seems lee continues to try and improve not just doing the same old thing year after year. I'm am definitely pleasantly impressed with these dies that were 1/3 of original cost in the closeout section of the lee web site.

    yeah iíve bought 2 single lee FCD dies and they both came in these new black boxes. the boxes look cool but they donít stack on each other at all. which, is annoying

    I'm getting to the point of needing a 5 and 6 die box for certain calibers, since Lee has so many options.

    I like the red box.
    I'm guessing they don't sell them anymore.

    Just saw that FS Reloading still has them.
    $4.40 each
    Might have to get some.

    Just checked and Lee still sells them.
    $4.98 each
