Re: To crimp or not to crimp?

Your logic of no one trying anything new in BR and shooting the same cartrdges is not following my logic... Benchrest shooters would use Buffalo Dung if it would improve accuracy.. Some of the bullet makers have stated in adds that to crimp a non crimp grove bullet is a bad idea.I have crimped bullets in rifles that needed them to be crimped such as a 458 and have shot them single shot in the same gun uncrimped and do not see ANY accuracy Improvement... If you want to crimp by all means...I dought very much that you will be able t0o prove that it in and of itself helps accuracy the more variables induced into the equation would not appear to be the best solution to better accuracy...

    Reread what you wrote and then read what I wrote in response.
    I could give a SH*T what you do! You made an all encompassing statement about crimping being a Holy Grail WHICH NOBODY ever said, EXCEPT for YOU.

    This conversation has become ridiculous, I'm done wasting my time [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    A little testy I see,just because I don't believe that crimping is the way to better accuracy,then you prove me wrong..........

    BigDaddy,
    I have had the same questions and about the same answers; isn't necessary except for blahblahblah. I haven't had/taken the time yet to try it myself. If you do try it, let us know how it works out; I'm currious.

    BigDaddy, did you compare your crimped load vs your non crimped yet?.....
