I am trying to find a 6x45 crimping die. I have looked on RCBS, Lee, and Hornady web site, but see nothing. I have thought about 6mm or 243 crimping die but not sure they will work. I don't want to use the seating die for crimping. Any ideas. Will make some phone calls later to the manufactures.

With shipping, I think, I paid $31. You can get by without crimping, but sometimes for AR, it'll help with accuracy too.

Why do you need to crimp the round, if you don't mind my asking? I assume you are shooting a bolt gun, no? If so, 1 or 1.5 thousandths neck tension will be plenty grip to shoot without bullets jumping around in the magazine.

Shooting a AR, thought it would be a good idea. Had one to come lose. Don't like how seating die crimps.

Go back to Lee. Tell them you want a factory crimping die in 6mm.
