Hand Gun Dies

How to select the right die set for your needs

The first step in selecting a die set for a cartridge is to know where and what the ammo is to be used in.

All Lee Handgun Dies feature a Carbide Sizing Die. Carbide dies are simply the best way to resize straight walled handgun cartridges.

The Standard Three Die Set works fine when using a quality controlled source of gun brass like cases fired only in your gun. More care is required when adjusting the bullet seat and crimp die as seating and crimping occur simultaneously.

Select the  4 Die-Deluxe Pistol Die Set when using mixed range brass or brass that was fired in other guns. The Deluxe Set includes the Carbide Factory Crimp Die. This die allows you to separate the bullet seating from the crimping operation. It makes setup much easier and the die has the added feature of a carbide resizer that does a finishing sizing pass on the completed round. This final sizing guarantees that any case that passes through the die will freely and reliably chamber in any gun.
