Lee Pacesetter/Deluxe??

Hey guys, need some help. I am not new to reloading(pistol) but I do not know a whole lot about bottle neck cartriges and I was wondering what the difference is between the Lee Pacesetter three die set and the Deluxe 3 die set?

TIA

The biggest difference between these dies are: The Lee pacesetter has a full size resizing die and the deluxe has a collet die that is very useful for sizing fireformed cases of your chamber which should help accuracy and case life whereas the pacesetter die resizes to factory specs.
The pacesetter does come with a crimping die which the deluxe does not.Some shooters like to crimp bottleneck cartridges and some do not.I myself apply a light crimp to my rifle cases and feel that gives me a constant release of the bullet but this could be debated!
If full lenght resizing works for you buy the Pacesetter dies and if you want to shoot your fire formed cases buy the deluxe dies and aseparate crimp die if you like.
I hope this helps ; good luck and GOOD SHOOTING
