I use a lot of Lee's products and have never had any problems, but it is nice to know they are responsive.
Why can't you crimp the rifle rounds with a standard 2 die set?quote:Originally posted by bunzo351
I have mostly Lee dies and really like the factory crimp die. I got some Lee Deluxe Collet dies for 22-250 and discovered there is no factory crimp die with the set, so I ordered one. I also ordered a factory crimp die to go with all my RCBS dies, too. Lee doesn’t offer dies for .270 Weatherby magnum but you can order them custom made. I have the dies by RCBS but no factory crimp die. I just might order one of those too.
Pacific, Hornady and RCBS all have info on how to crimp with their 2 die rifle sets. If you adjust any die too short it will crush or mangle the brass.quote:Originally posted by Iowegan
2400, The bullet seating die in a rifle set is not intended to crimp. If you adjust your die too short, it will mash the case instead of crimping.
I kind of forgot about the Lee 9mm dies...been kind of busy lately. Yesterday when I got home there was a box on my front porch containing a brand new Lee Deluxe 4 die set and a new Lee catalog. That's darn good customer service if you ask me. They just took my word for the fact the the set wasn't all there when I received it. I'm going to have to drop them an email.quote:Originally posted by rman
Sent the dies back to Lee today.
