This die seats the bullet in the case, and then gently squeezes the case around the bullet, forming a perfect taper crimp. Like all RCBS dies, these dies are carefully machined to exacting tolerances, then hardened and hand finished. The result is a quality reloading die that will offer a lifetime of use.
Die Type Included:
Taper Crimp Seater Die
Plastic storage case
The crimp gently tapers tighter and tighter to hold the bullet in place.
It does not affect the overall length of the cartridge.
This is very important for semi-automatics where the cartridge headspaces on the case mouth.
A Bullet seater is used to push (seat) the bullet down into the case to a specific depth.
New production dies (Mid-2004 +) will work for 45 ACP and 45 GAP cartridges.
