I'm not sure what a "speed" die is. I don't see anything on their site either.

Info on them is not easy to find, even thru Lee (they may have been discontinued). I keep seeing them on e-bay & other places on the web. As near as I can tell they are a one die does it all kind of thing. I guess you use one die to size, flare & seat. Look on Lee's website under closeouts, there are some on there but no info on them.

Looks like they are only made for certain calibers. If you have one of the calibers they make them for and a single stage press they might be good. I've never used one so I have no idea if they are good or not. They don't make them for the 45 Colt or the 44 Magnum.

So you would size and punch out the primer on the downstroke and bell the mouth on the up stroke. That is like a rifle die. Then the seating operation must require some change in the internals for the die to seat the bullet and the crimp I have no clue how that would happen???

Maybe Lee just doesn't make them anymore. They don't advertise those calibers on their site.
