Thread: Crimp existing load or re-develop?

    Crimp existing load or re-develop?

    Hi
    I have a load I like that is about mid range in the Lee manual, if I want to use a Lee Factory Crimp do I stat at the beginning for load development or just re-zero?
    Thanks
    GH

    just crimp and shoot, all it will do is either shrink your ES and SD variables or nothing at all!
    very unlikely to increase pressure that much
    (light crimp that is! the actual movement in the lip of the neck should be barely visible, ideally all trimmed to length to get max results)

    Thanks you Sir,
    ES=Extreme Spread and SD=Standard Deviation I guess.
    Will it improve my shooting or will I see more deer?

    Probably not but you might avoid an action full of propellant?

    why don't you just compare them on a target and ensure the POI is the same. if it is go stalking otherwise adjust your zero accordingly.

    technically not correct as crimping will cause him to shoot his load faster than normal.
