Custom Services

Due to unprecedented order volume, we are suspending all custom work until we are able to meet the required volume of our standard products. At present, it appears to be January of 2014. 

All custom orders must be placed online or mailed with appropriate materials below to:  4275 Highway U, Hartford, WI 53027.


PISTOL AND RIFLE: Bullet Seating Plug

The bullet seater plug that comes with the die set is as close to generic as we can make it. If you find that the bullet seater plug deforms the nose of the bullet you are trying to seat, we can make a custom bullet seater plug to fit your bullet. Order the custom plug here

We need:

  1. Payment of $8.00 + shipping
  2. 1 sample bullet

Case Length Gauges

Custom case length gauges can be made for cartridges that fit an existing shell holder. A list of calibers and their corresponding shell holders can be found in our catalog (page 15). While there is really no maximum caliber, the smallest we can make is .22. We are unable to make case length gauges for the 577/450 Martini-Henry, 517 Snider, and 416 Barrett as we don't have a shell holder for the case length gauge that fits the rim of these cases. We also cannot produce a case length gauge for the .204 since it is too small. Order your custom case length gauge here. 

We need:

  1. Payment of $15.00 + shipping
  2. Desired trim length
  3. Bullet diameter or a couple sized sample cases
  4. Shellholder number

Collet Necksizing Die Set

A Custom Collet Die Set consists of the Collet sizer and the Dead Length Bullet Seater, a shell holder and dipper. Maximum outer diameter at the base is .555 and the maximum bullet diameter is .375. There are a few exceptions for the larger Ultra Mags and if interested in those, you may want to give us a call or send a case to determine whether or not we can make them. Order your custom collet necksizing die set here.

We need:

  1. Payment of $60.00 + shipping
  2. 2 fired cases from the rifle that the ammunition is to be reloaded for
  3. 2 sample bullets

Factory Crimp Dies

RIFLE:

A Custom Factory Crimp Die for rifle cartridges can be made for any cartridge with a bullet diameter up to .458 inch and a maximum outer diameter at the base of .580. Order your custom factory crimp die here

We need:

  1. Payment of $25.00 + shipping
  2. Dummy cartridge (a bullet seated in an empty case)

Rifle Factory Crimp Dies are cartridge specific and there are a few that cannot be made. Any handgun case that is of a bottleneck design qualifies because the die would have to be made much like the rifle factory crimp dies but we do not make die bodies shorter than that you would find on a .223 Remington. Examples would be the 30 Mauser, 7.62 x 25 and the .357 Sig. The 50 AE also applies because the case is too short for the die bodies available.

PISTOL:

Custom Carbide Factory Crimp Dies for handgun cartridges can be made for most handgun cartridges that are not in regular stock. Sizes available run from 25 ACP sized cases up to the 480 Ruger. The 50 AE cannot be made because the carbide ring necessary for this cartridge is too large for our manufacturing process. Order your custom factory crimp die here

We need:

  1. Payment of $30.00 + shipping
  2. Dummy cartridge (a bullet seated in an empty case)

Large Series Factory Crimp Dies

Steel Handgun Die Sets

Three die handgun steel die sets consist of a steel sizing die (requires case lubrication), a powder through expander die and a seater crimper die. Generally, this option is chosen for calibers that have a design other than straight walled because carbide is not practical for such designs.

  2. 5 fired cases
  3. 3 bullets or cartridge and chamber dimensions

The setup cost is a one time per order charge, therefore additional die sets of the same caliber requested in the same order bear only the applicable cost of the dies. If 25 die sets are ordered, we waive the setup cost.
