Is smog considered weather?:barf:

Just because a bullet has a crimping groove,(cannelure), does not mean it HAS to be crimped. In fact where that cannelure ends up means nothing to the final product, if it's above the mouth of the case, so what.

Bearol, you can't crimp those match bullets with the dies you have. You could invest in a lee FCD,(Factory Crimp Die), then you can force the mouth into the side of the bullet. That can cause damage to the jacket, BUT most say it does no harm.

They're going to get their butts kicked over there this election. How come people can't spell and use words correctly?
