I had a Lee fcd. Didn't do much for me. As for makeing a stab crimp die I ground down the sleeve on a 460sw Lee fcd and had amazing results. Here's an exaggerated crimp I did to show how and where it crimps

I thought that the Hornady dies price was a little steep so held off on buying them. When I saw the Lee dies at Titan I bought them only to realize that they are their Pacesetter dies and have a steel resizing die. Was kind of a letdown to me as I really didn't want to add extra steps to loading routine. I loaded two batches for chronoing on two different days with these dies. I was having canted bullets and ignition problems so I bit the bullet (no pun intended) and bought the Hornady dies. No more canted bullets in my loaded rounds as the alignment sleeve works great. Now what to do with the Lee dies?

You either love Lee dies or loathe them. I learned my lesson with Lee dies and have nothing but Hornady currently in use. But someone will buy your dies gladly. Lee lovers are out there, obviously.
