    38/357 crimp die + other dies

    After a 38special/357 magnum crimp die. Not particularly keen on the Lee seat/crimp one, the dual function is a pain to get right each time. Would rather have one to set and forget.

    Also after 30-30win and 303brit dies, again, prefer not Lee

    You do set and forget a Lee seat/roll crimp

    I use the Lee in all my Marlins, no problem.... unless you are using different projectiles every day. Even then, once you learn the set up method, it's pretty easy to reset it for different seating length projectile.

    Otherwise I guess you are looking for a Lee Factory Crimp in 38/357? Good option, I just never bothered ever getting one for the levers. (I use for 9mm, 45ACP)

    Yup bingo.. have a Lee already, but loading both 38 and 357, with home cast .358 x 3 sorts, leftover .356 from my 9mm carbine which is verboten now, and two bulk lots of coated hard cast I picked up cheap. To be used in both lever and revolver, the lever for plinking and general messing about, as well as goats. That's a ton of different loads, so can't be fucked resetting the damn Lee for each of these.
