Carbide Die sets

Are all of the dies in a carbide die set carbide? Or just the resize die? The reason is that I have standard steel dies and I was considering buying a carbide sizing die rather than the whole set.

Just the sizing die is carbide.

RE: Carbide Die sets

How interesting, all of my pistol sets are listed as "Standard" but the resize dies are all stamped "Carbide". I'm wondering if I bought these used and someone upgraded the carbide die to the kit.

RE: Carbide Die sets

All Dillon pistol sets are carbide. Dillon rifle sets are usually available in either carbide or steel. Other manufacturers, will usually offer sets in either carbide or steel, rifle or pistol. I switched to all Dillon, for me, they seem to work better and I don't need a case expander die anyway. Sold the other brands on ebay years ago.
