no, probably not. manufacturer's branded crimpers are always $$$$$$.

remember, you want the crimper to handle the 15, 30 & 45 contacts, nothing larger.

and stay away from cheap crimpers, they're a PITA

Tri-Crimp is better than the other one (Western something...). Fat wires (10AWG I think, maybe it was 12 AWG) cause the connector to get stuck in the tool; Tri-Crimp is better at that. I own both.

Go chase the links at insideheli.com; they send you to a good store, and link to a useful article, esp. if you run into people who take the 45A rating literally.

Welcome to the PP club, where all the good looking people hang out.

BTW: It isn't easy to cram PPs into the nose of a 450 Pro, I would think they'd be a fail for a 250. You can trim the housings without losing insulation protection or functionality, but I haven't found a way that is clean, square, reliable enough.
