Re: Neck crimping?
I crimp some of my cartridges because I've dropped a box of cartridges and had the bullets seat deeper in the case.
I crimp my 357 cartridges because the instructions on my die set pertaining to bullet seating instructed me to crimp while seating.
I crimp my 30-30 cartridges so when being in the tube mag upon firing the bullets before or behind the others don't push the bullets deeper in the case.
I have loads that shoot .5moa that are crimped. I have loads that have shot .125moa that aren't crimped. I don't attribute inaccuracy or accuracy to a crimp itself; but loads that were developed with a crimp get a crimp, those developed without a crimp don't get crimped.
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."-- Samuel Adams
