I have seen recommendations that the best dies to obtain for the 56/50 cartridge, to be used in a Chiappa rifle, is the CH4D set..  Recommendations are to call and ask for the dies to fit the Chiappa. Is this good information or will any set of 56/50 dies work?

Thanks

Just get these:   https://www.midwayusa.com/product/792857/rcbs-legacy-series-3-die-set


They are designed to work with the Chiappa Spencer, and Starline brass.    I suspect whomever reccommeded CH4D was thinking of the orginal 56-56.  The best there is, with a price to match, but for your application the RCBS dies work best.  DO NOT GET LYMAN!

Thanks for the info... One set of RCBS dies for 56/50 and a shell holder for 50/70 on order..  What would you recommend for a bullet lube/sizing die ??

I make my own lube with Beeswax and Olive oil, and load my Spencer bullets pan lubed and unsized.  But any .515 sizer die should be fine.

I've had good results with my mold from Accurate Molds.  Take a look at:
