Works less than half the time

By Gene G. on Apr 24, 2020
I was very exciting when buying this...finally able to take out the "buldge" in my 9mm brass. I also purchased the 9mm Makrov crimp die. Sorry to say it doesn't work very good at all. If its just a little bulge, it'll work. But if the case gets stuck half way in your case gauge...it won't work. I'm having to throw out over half of my range brass due to the bulge. I definitely would not buy.

This thing is great

If you load primarily range brass, like I do, this tool is a must have. I was contemplating getting a roll sizer, but the bulge buster does the same thing for 100th of the price. I'm using it for 9mm Luger, with the 9mm Makarov die. Done at least 1000 rounds so far and all case gauge perfectly. Add another step to the reloading process, but it tremendously increase the reliability of the brass you pick up at the range. I'm using it to resize loaded shells. Works perfectly.

Lee Buldge buster

Excellent tool to knock out that unwanted glock buldge. Worth its weight in gold if you have range ammo to reload. I've busted out around 2000 shells in a short period of time

Lee Bulge Buster

Using this for .45 ACP and 9mm Luger. The 9mm requires a LEE 9MM MAKAROV CARBIDE DIE and works well on range brass. If you are using Lee Carbide sizing dies then usually only need the Bulge Buster once. Good product.

Excellent Tool

Lee comes through again with an innovative tool. Using their "Factory Carbide Crimp Die" mounted in a press. Simply screw in the kit's universal extender into the top of that die. Slip the punch into the ram and you are in business. This has cured feeding issues with mixed brass like nothing else could. My finicky auto is finicky no more. You can use this kit with any carbide factory crimp pistol die in the list. I use this unit with my Lee Reloader Breech Lock press. I simply pull the die from my Breech Lock progressive press and install it into the Reloader press. No adjustments needed with the breech lock bushing. Fast, fast, fast.
