Product Information

The Lee Lube and Size Kit is one of the fastest and easiest ways to lubricate and size cast bullets. The sizing die that comes with the kit fits in any press that accepts standard 7/8"-14 threaded dies. Bullets are pushed through the sizing die nose first, so no special top punches are needed. Gas checks are automatically seated and crimped in place. Sized bullets are captured in the special container and a 4 oz bottle of Lee Liquid Alox bullet lube is included.

Technical Information:

Material: Steel Sizing Die, Plastic Hopper
Function: Size cast bullets
Notes:
  • Comes in red plastic case
  • Lee recommends bullets be relubed after sizing to be sure the sized portion is coated with Alox.
  • All lead bullets must be lubricated, but it is not absolutely necessary to size all cast bullets. Bullets must be sized if they are so large that they expand the case too much to freely enter the gun's chamber. Sizing sometimes helps accuracy by making the bullet uniform in diameter. Sizing helps ensure uniform start pressure and better accuracy. Gas checks can be installed with this tool. Simply place the gas check on the base of the bullet before sizing.


  • Directions for Use:

  • Lubricating Bullets:
    1. Place bullets in provided red plastic container and drop in the included Lee Liquid Alox onto the bullets.
    2. Gently shake the bullets in an orbital motion to coat the bullets. If they do not coat completely, add a little more lube.
    3. Spread the bullets onto waxed paper and let dry overnight.
    4. Load at least one bullet into a case and check to be sure it easily chambers in the gun. If it fits tightly, you must resize the bullet before loading.
  • Sizing Bullets:
    1. Screw the sizing die into any standard reloading press. Exact depth is not important.
    2. Install the bullet punch into the ram. This fits all rams that use standard shellholders.
    3. Place the red plastic container with the lubed bullets inside on top of the sizing die.
    4. Place bullet on the punch and push the bullet through the die.
    5. When 3/4 of the bullets have been loaded, lift the red plastic container off the die. Invert the holder before opening.
    6. For rifle and hot pistol loads, it is best to relube the bullets to ensure the sized portion is recoated.
