Redding .44 Special/Magnum
Micro-Adjustable Profile Crimp Die
Top adjusting for progressive presses with tight space constraints
Redding’s new Micrometer Adjustable Crimping Dies are top adjusting to simplify making precise adjustments because any variation in case length and wall thickness both adversely affect proper adjustment.
These handgun cartridge crimp dies were designed for those who want the best possible crimp. Profile crimp dies provide a tighter, more uniform roll type crimp, and requires the bullet to be seated to the correct depth in a previous operation.
The new Micrometer Adjustable Crimping Dies have a knurled micrometer barrel situated on the top of the die for easy access and provides approximately .100″ of “on-the-fly”adjustment in .001” increments.
Versatility is enhanced on handgun dies by being able to reverse the internal crimping sleeve to accommodate two different cartridges having closely related body diameters. An example is the 38 Super and the 9mm family of cartridges. Rifle cartridges are non-reversible.
