Same for me. I generally crimp only for my tube fed rifles.

Whooops, an alibi if you will allow it. I do crimp heavily for my black powder loads in my original 45/70 single shot US Army Trapdoor rifle and the earlier 1870 US Navy Rolling Block rifle in 50/70. Black powder seems to perform best with a heavy crimp, and of course a compressed powder charge and magnum primers.
