Can I use RCBS dies

I have an older RL550B, I've only used it for .41mag loading, I want to start loading 300 win. mag, I have a set of RCBS dies for this Caliber. Will it work?

Yes, but you will need a powder die for station 2.

So I can use any RCBS dies on any Dillon reloading machine? Is there a press that you prefer. And will I need a powder dye from Dillon or from RCBS?

RE: Can I use RCBS dies

You can use any standard dies.

To change caliber you'll need a Dillon Caliber Conversion Kit for the new caliber that fits your press. This will include a new shellplate for the new case, new brass locating pins, and a powder funnel for the new case (take the powder die off and swap out the powder funnel).

If you're using the small powder bar for the pistol loads, you'll probably want to swap that with the large powder bar for the rifle cases.

This should all be in your manual.
