On my 3-Dillon 1050s I use Dillon dies except for the crimp station. There I use the Lee Factory Crimp Die. Even though I trim all rifle cases every time, I still use the Lee Factory Crimp Die. It's sweet!
1) Case length is not a factor. The crimp is the same regardless of length and the amount of crimp is adjustable with your two fingers. No nut to loosen and retighten.
2) You can Not bulge the case by over crimping.
3) I think it's a better crimp than roll or taper.
4) The die post sizes the cartridge which keeps you shooting if the brass varies to the thick size.
5) It's inexpensive but good quality.
On my RCBS Junior I use Lee Carbide for Pistol (lightly lube anyway... Dillons lube is the best) and Lee steel dies for rifle, and yes the Factory Crimp Die always.
You can only have to much ammo if you're on fire or drowning!
