I'm away from home, but it seema like my die is something like 0.178. I
usually refer to a table that I down loaded fromm RF Industries web page.
The strip lengths are not always dead on for other company's connectors, but
the crimp dimensions are usually dead on. Can't remember where I got they
die, maybe from Joel at
