    BCB replied to a thread crimping heeled bullets in Cast Boolits
    I got the 32 LC from him a month or so ago… I am crimping Alox-coated boolits and of course they are dirty as that Alox gets all over the seating stems and the collet in the crimper… I tried to take the collet out of the die, but I couldn’t...
