I want to start reloading for the .39 Luger, but don't want to mess with sizing lube. I can't seem to find a (3) die set in this caliber in carbide. Any suggestions on a supplier?

thanks,

thanks for the responses, I guess I will just order a set of regular Lee dies and accept that I will have to lube them. I have been out of this for a few years. I will buy my powder and primers locally, but do you have a recommended supplier for dies and bullets?

thanks again.

The two online suppliers I use all the time for dies, bullets and most brass are Graf & Sons (http://www.grafs.com) and Midway (http://www.midwayusa.com).

If you compare prices, you might notice that Graf & Sons prices are a little bit higher. That's because they include part of the shipping on each item ordered. Then their shipping cost is lower than Midway. I'm not sure which is the best "deal." Either have been great to work with for me.

I know some 357sig reloaders FL size with a carbide 40s&w sizer first, then unlubed in a steel 357 sig sizer. I'm not sure how close the 30 lugar is to one of the 9mm/380 cartridges to work similarly. I heartily recommend the Hornady 30 lugar seating die, with the sliding alignment sleeve. I use it for 7.62x25 Tokarev. I don't know if their 30 lugar sizing die is titanium nitride treated or not, but if it is, that would eliminate the need for lubrication too.
