Default RE: Lee Collet Die

You don' t really NEED any crimp - unless your firing a semi-auto elephant rifle. But I' ve been experimenting with this die too. The results are still out on whether crimping helps any or not.

But to answer the question, you don' t need much crimp. Work the die down in increments to see the amount of crimp being applied. I like to look down from the top of die as I run the press and when the collets about touch sides - it' s time to quit.
