Lee Factory Crimp Die
The Lee Factory Crimp Die crimps the bullet in place more firmly than any other tool. It is impossible to buckle the case as with regular roll crimp dies. Trim length is not critical. Tests demonstrate that even bullets which have no cannelure will shoot more accurately if crimped in place with the Lee Factory Crimp Die. Can also be used for factory ammunition, which often becomes more accurate and better able to withstand rough handling because the bullet is firmly crimped in place. A firm crimp improves accuracy because pressure must build to a higher level before the bullet begins to move out of the case. Bullets will not shift in or out of the case under heavy recoil. The Lee Factory Crimp Die is included at no extra charge with Lee PaceSetter Dies. This die is calibre-specific and can be purchased seprately to compliment die sets of any brand that you may already have. In our experience, using the Lee Factory Crimp die is one of the most significant steps leading to improved accuracy of your reloaded ammunition. PLEASE NOTE: The Lee Factory Crimp Die is available for most popular calibres.
