Go here: https://leeprecision.com/3-di-carb-500-s-w-mag.html

and click on the "download product instruction" link.

Read step #5. Your answer is in that section of the INSTRUCTIONS.

The answer is "yes".

I use Lee with my 454 Casull and 460. The seating die also crimps.

On my 500 Magnum, I use RCBS, and the same is true.

If you don’t crimp, the other cartridges will move locking up your action in the action. Not fun... it’s happened to me.

Yea we had a guy who ran into an aggressive moose with his 454 and could not get it to work.

We were sorry the moose did not get him, he was an idiot but he was an honest one.
