Having reloaded thousands of rounds of pistol calibre ammunition in the past (The good old days!) and also for my 44 mag lever action rifle, I have always applied a crimp after seating the bullet heads. I am new to reloading rifle ammunition and wondered what the general consensus is on applying a crimp, I know some people don't but thought I would seek a little advice. I will be loading for .243 and .270 calibre.
For those that recommend applying a crimp, I use the lee factory crimp die ( LFC die) for pistol ammunition, is the appropriate LFC die for rifle ammunition recommended or are there better alternatives?
