Lee Precision 308 Factory Crimp Die

Lee 308 Factory Crimp Die crimps the bullet in place more firmly than any other tool. Tests demonstrate that even bullets which have no crimp groove will shoot more accurately. A firm crimp improves accuracy because pressure must build to a higher level before the bullet begins to move. This higher start pressure insures a more uniform pressure curve and less velocity variation.

Simple design uses a four pronged collet that rides up with the shell casing up to the top of the stroke, where it squeezes in around the neck. This crimps the shell perfectly from the side, not like a taper crimp pushing from the end (which can cause buckling the case). The top of the die is open, so you can see the bullet as the die contracts around it.
Quick and easy setting, works on all bullet weights/shapes without further adjustment. It makes switching bullets easier because the seating die just seats, it doesn't crimp now.
I'm very glad I bought this. I will buy more for other calibers.

True factory crimp. These are fantastic dies and money well spent. I've purchased this die for my 223 also and it works great. No more crushed cases. You get a better feel whew crimping. Everything I use has been RCBS except for the these crimp dies. I highly recommended them.

Lee makes these Dies function so easily. As much as i'd prefer to Not add steps to the process, these work so well, and are so easy to set up, i've just made it part of my system. Read the simple instructions, maybe watch a YouTube or 2, and you're golden.

Lee makes terrific stuff. Made in the USA and worth more than they sell for. (IMHO) Not a shill or paid anything the Lee Tools just work for me.

This was one of four crimp dies that I ordered all came fast and as I use a number of Lee products. These are fill my requirements.

I usually purchase Hornady and Dillon products, but I couldn't find either one for 308 Winchester that wasn't part of a complete set of dies, so I decided to try this Lee die. It was a little different setting up in my progressive press, and I wish that it had some way to lock the die ring in place once it's set, but for now it'll work for what I need. Always remember during the initial setup, start high and work your way down. You won't mess up a crimp that's too high, but you will be quick to ruin a perfectly good load and the case if you crimp too low.

I am an avid reloader and shooter. I have used Lee Precision products for years and I also have used RCBS products. I switched over to Lee several years ago and never looked back. I ordered this Factory Crimp Die for a 308 Win to go with a Collet Neck Sizer Die set. I also have ordered a 3 die set that includes a full length sizer.

If you want "as good as it gets" without the high price, get Lee Precision dies and presses. You will not be disappointed...I recommend Lee Precision products.
