I don't care what the manual says, crimping AR ammo isn't necessary. You might switch to a SB (small base) die for resizing to get more reliable chambering.
I use Ramshot Montana Brand's Exterminator for powder, a lot of guys are using the TAC. I recommend them they are clean burning, and I haven't cleaned more than the barrels, since switching to it. I just oil up the bolt and trigger, once in a while.
