    Ok comments on a postcard please.

    1st attempt at crimping. I used a round which is to be pulled to see what was going to happen.

    Does it look ok?

    These are with my new loads. The canalure is there purley down to a 20 thou jump which the rifle seems to like. Also Ive used the same pressure as the 1st picture.

    Crimp looks heavy to me. Did it take much pressure on the handle?

    And why crimp? Because it's what the cool kids do.~Muir

    looks better
    agree the first ones looked a bit heavy
    I try not to replicate the depth that factory crimps have (only ones I have are RWS and they look brutal)

    Quite so !
    I have re-loaded for over 50 years and have NEVER crimped bullets or tumbled cases.
