Lee .45 acp Factory Crimp Die (FCD)

Recommended Posts

This shortage on everything firearm related is getting very old! Ive been searching for a Lee .45 FCD for awhile now. Not in stock anywhere?! Anyone have any leads on one? Or one they want to part with?

Or maybe someone near by that i could borrow one for a short bit just to experiment a little?  Having some chambering issues with my LRN .45's and ive been reading up and finding people use this FCD on .45acp often..

I've had good luck at Midway USA by using their notify feature.  You have to act fast though, if you get a notification in the morning and don't see it until the afternoon, you are probably SOL.

Does the die have to be Lee?  Is there any reason you cant use a taper crimp instead of factory?

Yea, ill have to set up some alerts.. Just seems mid mornings is when everyone restocks online and alerts go out; right when im working and not usually able to stop and mess with the phone... :ireful:

 

My 45 reloads with cast RN bullets are getting a buldge at the base of the bullet when seated in the brass. My new 1911 clone has a really tight barrel and im having issues fully chambering; even though the rounds pass the plunk test on a midway tester. My research finds its somewhat a common problem and a LFC die sizes down the case and lead bullet just enough to allow it to chamber in the gun.
