The collet-type Factory crimp die can be made for a wide variety of cartridges. Most cartridges will fit into the 7/8 x 14 thread die body. If your cartridge falls within the following parameters it will fit the standard 7/8 x 14 die:
Bullet diameter .172 - .501 (minimum - maximum)
Body diameter .295 - .570
Case length 1.345 - 2.850
(All dimensions in inches)
- Dummy cartridge (a projectile seated in an empty case). The dummy cartridge is for testing purposes, so make sure it is within normal dimensional tolerances. *Note to International Customers: Due to newly enforced shipping regulations as of 2/6/18, we will NOT be able to return your dummy cartridge to you.*
Please send your dummy cartridge, along with your invoice/order ID to:
Lee Precision, Inc.
4275 Highway "U"
Hartford, WI 53027

- 25 ACP (too short)
- 32 S&W Short
- 38 S&W
- 41 Long Colt
- 257 Winchester Magnum

- 475 Linebaugh
- 50 AE (case diameter is too large to fit in the 7/8-14 die and too short for large series as a collet type crimp die. It can not be made as a carbide crimp die because the carbide would end up being too thin to have the necessary strength. If you wish to separate the bullet seating and crimping steps then purchasing a separate seating die body is your best option.)

- 56/60 Spencer
- 500 S&W Special (too short)
