    The Pacific Durachrome dies have always been my favorite...the chrome plating helps with the rust problem we have in Louisiana ...the heat and humidity state . I have purchased them new and used when ever I get the chance . Gary

    Bimmer , If your boolit doesn't have a crimp groove use the taper crimp die from your 380 die set , re adjusted for the 38 special length , to apply a taper crimp . If it works you can always buy a dedicated 38/357 taper crimp die . I have a...
