Plated or non plated dies? Rust inside or outside? I've never gotten rust on any dies but I'm in a dry state.

RCBS packs their dies with a disc rust inhibitor. Their dies are not plated so the easiest way to get rid of that rust on the outside of any die would be to sand blast them. then simply clean them inside and out in automotive solvent. Let them dry and spray them with WD40 before storing again. The reason your dies did not rust on the inside is they probably have case lube coating the inside.

I toss them in my tumbler with lots of dry media. Usually don't have much trouble with them banging together, but they could be included with some brass if that is thought of as a problem. When clean, I just lightly oil the OD and the ID...

Electrolysis is the best way. nothing is worn or harmed. You can Blue dies to help prevent rust as well.
