550B - 50 AE / 500 S&W seperate seat/crimp solution ??

Hi guys,

I am looking for an alternative to performing the seat/crimp in one die.

With the 500 I bought 2 sets of dies. I seat with one die (no crimp), and removed the seat plug from the other die for crimp only. This works, but sucks having to buy two sets of dies.

I am facing the same thing with 50 AE and hoping to find another solution.

I thought about buying an additional sea/crimp die only, but I can buy a die set for cheaper than one die from RCBS or Redding. Dillon doesn't make dies for either.

Amy ideas ?
