Lee Precision 45ACP Carbide Factory Crimp Die

Lee Precision 45ACP Carbide Factory Crimp Die

Sizes cartridges while it is being crimped so every round will positively chamber freely W/factory-like dependability. Adjusting screw quickly, easily sets desired amount of crimp. Revolver dies roll crimp W/no limit as to the amount. Perfect taper crimp is applied to auto-loader round. Crimper cannot be misadjusted to make a case mouth too small to properly head-space.

I tend to lean towards RCBS or Redding dies but, after getting my first Lee Factory sizer, I went and bought them for the rest of my cartridges. I can't imagine reloading without them now. They are the last stage in the reloading process. This die will "iron out" and little wrinkles and buldges in the loaded cartridge giving your reloads better reliability. In addition, I back off the crimp on the seater die and let this die create the crimp at this last stage. This allows the seater to seat the bullet without the resistance of a crimp. Now I don't get those bullet rings when I reload. Don't reload without these.

I started using Factory crimp dies on 380 ammo because of the tendency of the case to bulge with the seating and crimping done in one step. The factory crimp adds a step to the reloading process but the fact that the factory crimp die also has sizing built into it makes sure the casing will be the right size for the gun and will feed and chamber without trouble. I liked the way it worked with the 380 so well I started using Factory Crimp Dies for all the calibers I shoot. (.380 acp, .38/357, 45 acp, 5.56x45/.223 Rem). I'm having trouble finding a die for the .32.
Because Factory crimp is the final step in the reloading process, you are sure the rounds will perform as well or better than factory ammo. The extra step is worth it whether you reload a couple of hundred or a couple of thousand.

This crimp die also has a built it carbide sizer ring. Besides being a great crimp die, this is also the die to use with Lee's "Bulge Buster" set. That will completely size your brass by pushing it fully through this carbide die. Especially important if you get Glock brass that has the characteristic bulge from the unsupported chamber. Since I grab all the brass I can from the range this does a super job of getting it all properly sized.

this die produces a factory quality crimp without "streesing" the cases.n I load both black powder and smokelless loads and this die gives a perfect crimp every cartridge! Load app 1000 each month! Luv my .45 Colts!

Works exactly as described. Easy set-up and makes a beautiful, full-circumference crimp, unlike some of the taper-crimp dies I've used that seem to crimp only part way around the projectile.

I was having constant problems with my .45 reloads feeding reliably into the match barrel. I tried using only un-fired brass and bought new magazines; all to no avail. However, once I switched to the Lee Precision Carbide Factory Crimp Die the feeding issues disappeared.

Works well. Bullets drop right into gauge after use. As for most Lee items I have. finish is a little on the rough side.

Solved my feeding issues. Before crimping I had a failure to feed every 10 rds or so. After crimping, no issues through 500+ rounds.

A must have for reloading. bought one for every caliber we reload.

A must for reloading .45ACP ammo. Provides consistent feeding and powder burn rate.
