Thanks for the reply's. Sorry for the confusing post, but it was a long weekend.
The crimp I used was a taper crimp. I rechecked the both the Lyman Book and the One caliber book and both do say taper crimp if needed. Should I crimp the bullet any way? Is there a better manual I should get. I figured Hornady's book will only use Hornady's bullets, is that correct.? When the books say 185 grain bullet JHP is that a generalization, will any 185 gr JHP bullet work with the load make up?
Any suggestions on books that I should have? As of now I only have the the Lyman 49th edition and the One book/One caliber books.
