question on 45-75 crimping
« on: June 28, 2020, 03:33:18 pm »
Greetings All,

Still holed up from the virus siege so decided to load a few of the new 45-75 cases.  In the process got to thinking about the Lee factory crimp die I have read about.  Now my dies are RCBS legacy die set and the seating die does a good job of a roll crimp on the bullet so no problems, but curiosity kills the cat.  Figured before seeing if a 45-75 factory crimp die can be built from lee I would see what you good folks use and what you think of the results.  I am guessing these factory crimp dies are cartridge specific so having one built up is the way to get one.  What say you folks, am I understanding this product and is the finished results worth investing in the die ;D?! Thanks!

The Lee Factory Crimp die is all I've ever used. Custom order, $25.

Thanks Mr. king Medallion!!  I am thinking of investing in one.  Cartridges I am loading now work good but am always looking at improving quality of the reloads.  Thanks again!!

I have had a Lee Crimp for many years and it has always been a good one to use.  I, too, have RCBS dies but the Lee die is the one that I like to use.  Those folks have been good to deal with and when your order is placed, it is not much of a long time to wait.  Go for it and you wont regret it.

Thanks folks for the replies.  I sent an email over to Lee and got the response back.  Currently they are slammed with business and not taking orders for non-standard dies and accessories.  Will keep an eye on their notices posted to their site and when things hopefully returns to a more regular pace will be able to get one ordered.  Until then the seating die does a nice roll crimp and the loads function smoothly in the rifle.  When/if can get my hands on one will do some side by side comparison and post report back here.

Stay safe and an early Happy 4th of July to all!!

P.B.
