I have a Lee in 45 and will get one for the 9 mm
Are the RCBS TAPER CRIMP SEATER DIE 9MM LUGER as good?
3 days ago my son ran 16 50rnd boxes of 45acp 230rnl threw the lee factory crimp die...... hope they are okI would suugest you only use the Lee FCD on jacketed bullets. I have documented significant changes in bullet diameter with lead bullets. The lead squeezes tigher in diameter and does not spring back. This causes inconsistency in accuraccy. I really chased my tail solving this one. I use Redding taper crimp dies. An acquantance of mine ordered a special one from Lee with the sizing portion at the bottom of the die ground .001" larger in diameter and that solved the problem.
With that said, if I was shooting jacketed, I would not hesitate to use the Lee Factory Crimp Die.
