Posted on February 22 2018
The Lee Collet Neck Sizing Dies: Use these dies for best accuracy, longest case life and no resizing lubricant. Only the neck of the case is resized the body is untouched so it retains the perfect fit to your guns chamber. Cases should have been fired in your firearm only and reloaded rounds are intended for use in just one firearm.
If you intend to reload cases fired in others guns or you are reloading for more than one gun select the Ultimate Rifle Die Set. The Ultimate set includes a full length resizing die that allows you to restore any case to factory original dimensions so that you can fire form in your gun and then reload using the superior Collet neck sizing die. Ultimate Rifle Die Sets include the Factory Crimp Die. The Lee rifle Factory crimp die is the only effective way to crimp bottle neck rifle cartridges. Applying a Factory crimp will always improve the utility of the cartridge and in most cases it will also improve the accuracy.
When using mixed range brass or brass that was fired in other guns use the Carbide Deluxe Four Die Set . The Deluxe Set includes the Carbide Factory Crimp Die. This die allows you to separate bullet seating from the crimping operation. It makes setup much easier and the die has the added feature of a carbide resizer that does a finishing sizing pass on the completed round. This final sizing guarantees that any case that passes through the die, will freely and reliably chamber in any gun.
