I'm assuming the carbide will last longer and that's the only advantage? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes Bdavis is correct. I see no reason not to buy carbide dies for a pistol.

It looks like the carbide dies are actually cheaper too, on Midway. Strange but good. OK thanks guys. And gals.

The Great advantage to carbide dies are that they need no lube. I would reccomend that you get carbide dies and a factory crimp or taper die if you are going to be reloading for an autoloader.
Remember that most autoloaders headspace on the case mouth so if you roll crimp them it may cause bad accuracy or they may not fire at all.
