The Lee Factory Crimp Die is the only effective way to crimp bottleneck rifle cartridges. Our Factory Crimp Die should be used on all loads used for hunting. Applying a factory crimp will always improve the utility of the cartridge, and in most cases, will also improve the accuracy.
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.
Factory ammunition is often 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. This higher start pressure insures a more uniform pressure curve and less velocity variation. Even powder selection is less critical. Until now, handloaders seated the bullet to touch the rifling to
achieve similar results. This is not always possible nor desirable. The Lee Factory Crimp Die solves that issue.
