    GAP 10 - Crimp?

    I will be loading for a GAP 10 someday when the wait is up - but was curious if those doing so already are crimping? Also if anyone has input on a good die set for 6.5CM I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

    Crimp or not to crimp?

    New to reloading and I was wondering if you crimp .223 AR-15 ammo? I read in the Speer book I got with the Rock Chucker Set and it read "always crimp if loading for semi-autos" but I heard guys never crimp their .223 AR ammo. So what to do crimp or no crimp?

    Whats the best way to remove primer pocket crimp

    I've got a bunch of 5.56 cases that need to be de-crimped. I figure the best way is with the Dillon Primer Pocket swager but I'm not ready to spend that much yet. RCBS makes a die that swages the primer pocket, anyone have any experience with it? Is it easy, hard slow ...? Also Forster...
