    It is not listed on their website in that cal. You may have to contact them for a custom die. Good luck!

    Hi sestoppleman, Thanks for that feedback. You are right I may have to go the custom route. Was just hoping that with the wide network on AH I might find someone who has taken this journey and no longer has a need for it. A-R did inform me that Lee are considering introducing a crimp die for the 338 LM and the body case is apparently the same as my 460 WM. Interesting to see if that is a solution.
    Warm Regards,
    Bill

    I did some scouting for one of these and didn't find anything also. Lee isn't doing ANY custom orders either until Jan `14 at the earliest either.

    What's wrong with using the taper crimp that mist seating dies will do for you?

    I don't think Lee will make them for the .460. They would not make collet dies for my .338 Lapua because the case exceeds their maximum tolerance. The 460 has a slightly slimmer case but the belt makes it even wider than the 338.

    Hi Diamondhitch, I have heard that Lee will be making a die crimp for the 338 LM and that this should work for the 460 as well. How true ....not sure, but the interest around the 338 LM is building at an alarming rate and I believe they will be compelled to meet this growing demand in the market.
    Warm Regards,
    Bill
