3rd stage Seating/Crimping die adjustment for Lee die

With an empty case in the shell holder, raise the ram to the top and turn the die in until it stops. This is where the crimp shoulder meets the case.

Place a bullet on the empty flared case. Raise and lower the ram checking bullet seating depth. (make sure the adjustment knob is backed off some first)

Rotate the adjustment knob clockwise while holding the die. Raise and lower the ram to confirm seating depth.

Lower the ram and turn the die in one additional half turn. Raise the ram to complete the crimp depth. You might have to fine tune you crimp by raising or lowering the whole die a fuzz.

I don't use the Lee factory crimp die any more on handgun loads.
