Before I order reloading dies, I just want to make sure. Can I use 44SPCL/44Mag dies of ANY company to reload my 445, or only certain ones. Thanks in advance.

Some maker's FL dies may or may not be able to size the entire length of the 445 case but any will work to load the cartridge.

That's true. I have a lee carbide 4 die 44 special/44 mag set and they will full length size and load 445 SM cartridges. Lee doesn't advertise that set to work for the 445 SM but they do. Best bet is to go Midway Usa and do a search for 445 SM dies.

I run RCBS .44 Mag dies to handload my .445 super Mag.

Thanks for the info. guys. I just got home from vacation and my dies are here. (Lee dies) Starline brass was already waiting in my desk.
I hope to load up the first rounds this week and shoot on the weekend. I will post how it all goes.
