Need help on dies for Hornady LNL AP

B*w-Hunter said: i am relatively new to reloading. I have just ordered a Hornady LNL AP. I am not sure what type of 9mm dies to buy for the press. The reason i went with the Hornady was because of the 5 holes. I do like the idea of having a Powder checker die. I was thinking of getting the Lee 4 set 9mm Carbide dies. I am not sure if that is going to work now because i am short 1 hole in the press. So how do i go about setting the LNL up to reload 9mm, .357 mag, and to crimp ammo at the same time with the FCD. Thanks in advance

This is for 2 reasons: 1) the Lee dies with the LnL bushings installed don't fit properly in the Lee die boxes so the lid doesn't close. 2) the Lee dies are shorter than the Hornady dies so there isn't much thread left to hold the lock ring.
