Slamfire,
     I got some 45-60 dies by RCBS about 2011.  They were relatively expensive then, but were the only ones I could find at the time.  It seems that now everybody and his brother make them, but I would still spring for the relatively high dollar dies as the 1876 is my favorite rifle,  and I want dies that will last a long time.  For the last eight years they've been very good for me. 

                                                                                                                                             Dave
