Rainier says always taper crimp, but only a couple of taper crimps are available for .38 spl/.357 magnum. How are you experienced Rainier users crimping revolver ammo?

I was going to pick up the Hornady 3 die set, but am now not sure.

Taper Crimping...
I have taper crimed for years. Hornady, Lyman, Lee and maybe other make a TAPER CRIMP DIE.

If you want a full die set, RCBS makes a Carbide set with a taper crimp seating die.
