To Crimp or not to Crimp

<< < (3/3)

i use a taper crimp on my 45-70 bp rounds,just to kinda hold round nose 500 grain bullet in place.dont know if it really needs it,but i think it looks better too :)

HorsePen Henry:
I use ta shoot 45-90 quite a bit with cast bullets and I always used a slight crimp. Not much, just enough ta keep the bullet from slipping out at a time when I don't need 'em to.

Single shot rifle rounds aren't crimped by some shooters in BPCR matches some do crimp. I think it all comes down to personal preference or what the indiviual rifle likes best.


French Jack:
The only rounds I crimp are the pistol and Spencer rounds.  All others I run in the die just enough to remove the bell from the neck expander.  I have had no  problems, and accuracy has never been affected.  Of, course, I'm not shooting them in a lever action, so no problem.  Come to think of it, with a case stuffed full of compressed 2F black, the bullet is not going in the case further.???-- and it is snug enough not to work loose.
