The Lee Factory Crimp Die ( in handgun cals ) is a specialized problem solver .

Most of the time , the usual 3 dies will work perfectly well . Sometimes , the dimension stack of certain bullets , in certain cases, in certain chambers , just can't quite get it done . But To Me , it's not an automatic go to . Try the conventional 3 dies first , they'll probably work fine . IF there is an actual problem , then exotic crimp dies are a tool in your quiver . ( And a shout out to the might Redding Profile Crimp die .)

Back when I loaded oddles of .38spl , I had a visual shortcut to load identification ( always using CCI Small Standard as default ) :

Cast RN = 3.2gr WW231 @ 700-ish
Cast generic machine swc = 4.5gr Unique @ mid 800's

Anything that deviated was carefully marked .

The above bulk std pressure loads were whatever brass, usually mixed range brass . " Interesting" loads were matching once fired brass, that I had fired personally from factory ammo .
