Lee factory crimp dies

I use the lee dies to reload 44 mag and 357 mag. Do any of you use the factory crimp die instead of using the seating die to crimp with ?

I use the Lee Factory Crimp Die on rifle loads for the mil-surp rifles I shoot. Most have looooooog throats and I get better accuracy by using the crimp die over non crimped rounds in them.

That is the only Lee product I do use. I've got .223 for my AR, .45 ACP, and 9MM. Excellent product for the money.

Use one for my 22-250. God I love it. And lee products are great for the money.

It works just like it says it does. I use it when loading to magazine length.

Yes, I use one in 38 spl., 357 mag, 44 mag, 30-30, and 45-70. I'll be adding one for my 9mm rounds next. I've had much better luck with the Lee crimp die, and it seems much less sensitive to trim length, which is nice when loading a couple hundred handgun rounds.
