Weatherby Rounds!

i know a lot if not most on here don’t think you need a crimp on your handloads.....BUT, in the nosler manual and from another buddy of mine, both seem to think the Weatherby rounds do better with a factory crimp on them, the nosler manual doesn’t say this for other rounds, so I was wondering if anyone has any experience/advice with the Weatherby reloading and if crimping is something I want to do with them, I shoot a 300 and a 257 Weatherby so it’s not like it would be a lot to pick up two lee factory crimp dies. Any info is appreciated

I've loaded both these rounds for years and have never crimped. I have a
340 magnum and I don't crimp it either.
Reload and enjoy your rifles.
