45/70 LEVERevolution Factory Crimp Die
Posted by Steph @ Lee Precision on 09 December 2016 01:03 PM

The standard 45/70 Factory Crimp Die will not work for Hornady LEVERevolution brass. The Factory Crimp Die is case length specific and crimps on the last .040" of the case at the case mouth.

The Factory Crimp Die needs to be shortened in order to reload this brass. We can make the modification here at the factory for $15.00 plus $6.00 shipping and handling.

We would need you to send in your Factory Crimp Die and a sample case or the difference in length from where the case contacts the shell holder between standard 45/70 brass and the Hornady LEVERevolution brass.
