    The military crimps the primers in their ammunition because of the very fast cyclic rate of the fully auto guns they sometimes shoot the ammo in. When a cartridge fires the primer backs out of the pocket momentarily until the case is pushed rearward from chamber pressure and reseats the primer against the bolt head, but if the case is being ejected before this primer reseating process is able to occur ( do to this fast rate of cycle) there is a chance that the primer could be loose in the action of a full auto firearm and jam the action. There is no evidence of crimping making primers harder to "blow".

    Neither actually. I do thousands of OFMB with crimped pockets and crimp removal takes a second at best, or as fast as you can feed them anyway. A second per might be push'in it a bit....... Lets go with 3 per for the sake of safety.....
