    Roll crimp tool recommendations?

    Seems there are a few out there. Anyone try a few and figure out which is best?

    I have both the ballistics products and precision reloading roll crimp tools. I have had the best results with the precision reloading crimp tool

    Ballistics products works well for me.
    A gun is like a parachute: If you need one and don't have one, you won't be needing one again.

    I have the gen1 ballistic products for 12 ga. Never had any trouble.
    The road less traveled ain't for the faint of heart

    Ballistic Products Roll Crimp: Square

    Precision Reloading Roll Crimp: Round

    Both work well.

    I prefer the rounded crimp of the PR for plastic hulls and the squared crimp of the BP for paper hulls.
