I've read through the previous threads on crimping or not, and there appears to be no definitive answer. I appreciate it is another variable in the reloading process and some comments state that with good bullet seating dies and consistent procedures, crimping should not be necessary. I am new to reloading having created some successful target rounds for my .243. I have now run out of expanding ammunition for my .308 so have just bought my .308 dies, including crimp die and plan to reload in some once-fired (in my rifle) Federal brass.
I have had two clear differing opinions from colleagues to this quite specific question, so:
Specifically for hunting rounds, do I/should I crimp?
