Why would I want to take the most perfect bullets ever made in the history of the human race and turn them into crap?
Early on I stopped using the Lee Factory Crimp die when I found the thing "coke-bottled" my 168 SMK's. I shot those bullets standing, and I cannot prove they made my score worse, or better!
I know, I've seen your pictures in just about every Crimp thread ever run on this forum. Personally I would be embarrassed to post over and over my inability to properly use a reloading tool as simple as the Lee Factory Crimp Die. If you would have used the die as intended and not smashed the hell out of your bullets, your results may have been different. Actually with a crimp that hard I'm surprised you didn't damage the die, or maybe you did. Did you?
