25-35 Winchester

Has anyone seen a Lee factory crimp for 25-35? I checked Lee's site, midway, and all the usual sites. I could not find one anywhere do they make one? Would you need to have one custom made for it?

They make one for 25-20, but not 25-35 that I can see. So yes, you're into a custom purchase. They charge $29 for a custom one.

Factory Crimp Dies

RIFLE:

A Custom Factory Crimp Die for rifle cartridges can be made for any cartridge with a bullet diameter up to .458 inch and a maximum outer diameter at the base of .580.

We need:

1. Payment of $29.00 ($25.00 + $4.00 processing fee)
2. Dummy cartridge (a bullet seated in an empty case)

Rifle Factory Crimp Dies are cartridge specific and there are a few that cannot be made. Any handgun case that is of a bottleneck design qualifies because the die would have to be made much like the rifle factory crimp dies but we do not make die bodies shorter than that you would find on a .223 Remington. Examples would be the 30 Mauser, 7.62 x 25 and the .357 Sig. The 50 AE also applies because the case is too short for the die bodies available.
