Son just bought his holy grail gun, A Lipsey edition 4 5/8" Ruger super Blackhawk in 480 Ruger. He has ordered a bunch of components and loaded ammo but doesn't know which brand of dies is the best for the job.
Looking for what are the best dies work best without buying other additional dies.

Thanks in advance,

Dave

I use the RCBS dies for my .454 Casull, I lightly crimp with these dies and finish with a Lee factory crimp. This should work well for the .480 Ruger and I have not had any bullets pull even with pretty hot loads in the .454.

I have RCBS Carbide Dies with an extra RCBS Seater Die for my 480 SRH. They have worked well for me. I am loading on a Dillon 550 progressive. Like ivoryhunter I seat and crimp in two steps. I believe I came up with a second die set used at a good price being the main reason I did not do as ivoryhunter did and get a Lee Crimp Die.

My advice would be to get an RCBS Carbide Die Set and also a Lee Crimp Die to go with it.
