Sounds good thanks for letting me know.

Don't worry about getting older and still doing stupid stuff. You'll do the stupid stuff as always, only much slower. Hold my beer and watch this.......

I didn’t use anything on the Lee crimp die. But on the other dies I clean them with Amsoil firearms cleaner.

Oh and that might be the bigger question since I'm close to getting powder (I hope)
Why do I have an extra crimper? Is it for non-cowboy jacketed applications?

Yes it works better on the copper jacketed bullets. You can over crimp with a roii crimp die and pucker the case mouth. When you do that it can cause chambering issues. The factory crimp die also squeezes the case below the mouth.
