I have a couple of Lee Factory Crimp Dies for pistols that I want that to happen to. The carbide ring at the bottom sizes the loaded cartridge in the last station of my 550b and crimps it. I do not like the carbide ring working the bullet and the case, would prefer that the did just crimp. Tempted to try and knock the ring loose...but they are likely brazed in. Now if the OP would just teach me how to do it to a Lee...
You can lap the rings out to customize them for your individual needs. Another option is to use a 9mm, 40 S&W or 44 crimping ring in a larger crimping die body.
