Taper Crimp Die (pictured on the left)
The Lee Taper Crimp Die is hardened steel designed to overcome crimp problems caused by poor die design. These dies offer little or no advantage when used with 1986 or newer Lee Dies as the crimp angle is already a modified taper crimp. Jacketed bullets must have a crimp groove.
Save time and money while producing more consistent, dependable and accurate ammo with the Lee Precision Carbide Factory Crimp Die. (pictured on the right) Trim length is not critical so you can eliminate all that case measuring and trimming you used to do. It sizes your cartridge while adding a factory-like crimp all in one operation. And since it crimps your bullets more firmly with more consistent pressure than any other die currently available from any other maker, the result is ammo that chambers freely like factory loads.
Lee Precision tests have shown the firmer, more consistent crimp results in a much more uniform pressure curve which is essential for maximum accuracy.

Incorporates a collet to apply a rifle type crimp to the case. Makes these very difficult to crimp cartridges a delight to reload. Bullets do not need a crimp groove, as the collet is so powerful it will form one.
