    Unfamiliar with Lee dies

    I was recently given a Lee 30-30 Win 2 die set that are missing some parts. One die appears to be a de-prime/sizer and I do not know what the other die is. It appears to be missing some parts. I have never used Lee dies before so I do not know what I am looking at. I have attached 2 pics, so if anyone can help me out I would appreciate it.Lee die 1.jpgLee die 2.jpg

      Yup. Factory crimp die. It looks complete. You just need a seating die to finish the set.

      Someone swapped the seating die for that crimp die at some point in time if you have the sizing die. You will have to find a seating die to make the 3 die set useable.

      I think I get it. I will have to go through my neighbors stuff again. He was given some of this stuff years ago and he does not know what a lot of it is. From what i remember seeing he has 2 of these factory crimp dies for 30-30 Win. Haven't come across a seating die yet, but i think I have the seating stem in the box with my dies.

      Thanks, that helps. I have the sizer and the factory crimp die. Still looking through his collection for the seater die. Did find him a Lee .308 factory crimp die in his collection.
