Question Carbide Dies

Which two die sets from Graf&Sons would you folks buy, the RCBS Carbide Set, or the Titanium Carbide Set?

I have not used the redding dies for the 500 S&W, but I did use the RCBS ones before I sold my 500. The RCBS carbide dies worked great, but I used case lube on every 4th or 5th round due to the thin wall die and the high pressure. I think It recomended doing that in the die instructions anyways.

I as well have and used the RCBS Carbide dies and I use a shot of Hornady One Shot just to help the dies along for as Ruger 357w says the manual recommends it. I do it just to help out for that is a lot of case to resize dry. I do it as well with my 45LC, 454 Casull, .460 and 480 to boot.
