There's sure a lot of conflicting information hereabouts concerning Lee crimp dies. In one forum they're just great and in another forum they're pure junk. I guess I'll have to wait until mine arrive and find out for myself.
I`ve used them and they work. I just don`t like the way they do it and the line they leave in the case neck. I personally like the old way of crimping in my bullets, and the old way feeds alittle better too. Actually I don`t like anything Lee make. Over the year since I started reloading, in 1965, I`ve had alot of Lee junk and it all way. Sooner or later it would let me down big time, and some of it I though was doing a good job for a while.
I have the 38 Special/357 Magnum, 44 Special/44 Magnum/ 445SM, 30-30 Winchester and the 7-30 Waters. They all perform very well and apply a very nice uniform crimp. The dies actually will crimp case mouths right into to the bullet cannelure if they are set properly. Good-luck BCB
