You need to get with the nomenclature...
OFMB= One Fired Military Brass
No, neither the Berger or the Sierra have a cannelure and every loaded round the military uses in normal procedures, is crimped, both at the case neck and the primer pocket.
So, you are going to load Sierra 175 grain SMK's or Bergers in the same flavor, I have to ask, what propellant, what primer what propellant load and seating depth and I presume you will full length resize the cases, or maybe not.....
One thing in your favor is that modern firearms have a hole on each side of the receiver in case the shooter makes a mistake... Those holes let the fire out instead of blowing back in your face..... Great innovation.
