Lee are good dies in standard rounds, including the .45-75. 

CH4D are the go-to suppliers of non-standard dies.  Great dies, great price

Not sure where to point the finger of blame but the one set of Lee dies I tried to plug into my Hornady LNL press was not a reasonale fit.  Between the LNL insert length and the short Lee dies there was just not sufficient room.  It can be made into a jury-rig set up but I wouldn't want to start out with the combination as a plan.  I now have a small stockpile of the brass (50) and plan to start a search for the right bullet when I return home from the holidays.  I'm told that the Uberti 45-75 is not currently available so I am using the interim to gather supplies and information, so be on the watch for my next 2,000 dumb questions!  MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL.

Slowhand, go look at Taylors website, they had the Uberti 76 on sale in under the clearance tab.
 Also as to powder you'll probably be the best off by ordering some KIK 1.5  from Powder Inc. 10lbs is 156$ delivered to your door.
I've not done anything with the 45-75, but unless its more of a bugger to work with than the 44-77, the stuff about these bottlenecked cartridges being hard to work with isn't necessarrily right.
Forgot to add if you have a spirit of adventure CDNN investments has Chapparrels for about 600$.
 And yes Jamison did close their doors , but that brass is in good supply at both Buffalo Arms and Grafs.

Thanks for all the good tips.

Just got a Uberti 1876 in 45-75.
Only have shot a few rounds thru it so far and it seems to be a hoot.
Shooting nothing but black.
Seems to be a challenge to get enough lube for the 28" barrel.

Look forward to working with you fine gents.

I got my 40-60 WCF and 50-95 WCF dies from CH4D, very good people to work with.
