I definitely value everyone's experience and opinions--that's why I solicit it when dipping my toes in something new to me. My previous straight wall case experience in AR's has been dealing with pistol cartridge carbines, and I certainly learned a lot from those--like P Flados says I get best results when I can seat a bullet with enough neck/case tension so that I don't need to crimp or minimally crimp if at all possible yet maintain headspace. However, the legend runs close to the same pressures as the 223 rem and is a DI lock-lug system, so it's potentially "sportier" as to the consequences when something goes sideways. Despite all the criticism blow-backs get, they do dump and dissipate their lower pressures almost immediately in the upper receiver once the carrier starts back.

The biggest question I have in my mind now--where's the load data?
If you’re ever hiking in the woods and you get lost, just look up and find the brightest star in the sky and you’ll know which way space is.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!
