While pulling off all my Lee carbide taper crimp dies and replacing with factory type, it dawned on me: I don't have a clue what is enuff or too much of a crimp. I got calipers so is there a general rule of how much I should measure to see if enuff crimp is being applied to pistol ammo : 9mm and 45ACP ?
Up to now, I was just swagging it.
I do believe I was swaging bullets using the carbide crimp die which has been discussed on this board a bit. Or I have the Lee die perfectly adjusted incorrectly !!
