Yes I am putting a factory crimp on the rounds.
I remember a guy, with little or no carpentry exp, trying to nail down a deck on his house. He actually measured where he placed each nail. I know they should be close but measuring is a bit much. In his defense he was learning and because of this he went a bit overboard trying to get it right. In that respect I am at that point in reloading. I am still learning and want to get it right and understand. If he got a nail slightly out of measurement it really wasn't a big deal. If I do the same thing, unknowingly, people could get hurt.
Ok, Is it a factory crimp
like a LEE Factory Crimp Die.... or, are you just using the roll crimp from your die set? Crimping with the Lee is far better in most any rifle, specially in the self-loaders in my experience. Just asking since you said you were just starting up in the hand loading game.
I don't think anyone here would fault you for asking a question concerning safety.. it's all cool.
