New Lee Dies for 2012

Lee reloading diesLee Precision is making two new PaceSetter die sets for 2012: the 338 Lapua and 300 AAC Blackout.  Both sets are two-die sets, though the company is also making a new factory crimp die (sold separately) for the 300 AAC Blackout.  All dies are now shipping.

The 338 Lapua is a standard two-die set that includes a shellholder, load data and a powder dipper.  MSRP is $39.98.

The 300 AAC Blackout is a “Very Limited Production” set.  Lee does not explain exactly what this means on their site, but I suspect that if you want one, you should buy sooner rather than later. The dies are not even available on the Lee site (out of stock), so you are probably going to have to hunt down a set through a Lee dealer.

MSRP is $44.98 and the kit does not include a powder dipper or load data.  It does include a shell holder.

The factory crimp die for the 300 AAC Blackout is also listed as “out of stock” on the Lee site.  Chances are you can pick one up from the same retailer who has the two-die set.  MSRP is $14.98.

If anyone finds the 300 AAC Blackout dies, can you post the dealer information in the comments section?  I don’t currently reload the Blackout, but I know others who read this site do.
