Product Information

Carbide Factory Crimp Die sizes the cartridge while being crimped so every round will positively chamber freely with factory like dependability The adjusting screw quickly and easily sets the desired amount of crimp. Trim Length is not critical so this extra operation takes less time than it would if cases were trimmed and chamfered. A firm crimp is essential for dependable and accurate ammunition, as it eliminates the problems of poor ignition of slow burning magnum powders.

Lee FCD does a great job

The Lee Factory Crimp Die is easy to use and is an important part of the reloading process. Good consistent crimp on all rounds.

This die is a great add on to any 3 die set. A must have for firing in revolvers.

Lee carbide factory crimp die

By Michael W. on Feb 21, 2020
Whatever your handgun caliber of choice, this die should be in your reloader's tool chest. No more discovery at the wrong time and place that your reloads wont fit in the cylinder hole or chamber. Whatever incorrect adjustments you or your bullet seating die created, this will fix it. A perfectly fitted bullet every time. You cant go wrong, a worthwhile investment.

Great for ammo that must work!

By Eric V. on Mar 08, 2019
I usually use this die for all my handgun rounds. I recently did not use it on some .357 reloads and regretted it. The rounds would not fit as the sizing die did size the brass down far or enough - or I was foolish enough not to seat the die completely down in my press. In any event, not all the rounds would chamber in my Model 19, though some would. I ran them through the Lee Factory Crimp die, removing the stem so that just the case would be resized. That worked fime - the bullets were tight in the case and the loaded rounds fit into all of my .357 revolvers. A great product.

The best crimp

By Vincent m C. on Nov 30, 2018
This is better than the crimp you can apply with the bullet seating die. Really the only way to go with a tubular magazine rifle.
