Ugly crimp ... 410
How ugly to you crimp to before tossing?
After reloading these AAs 7+ times they get pretty ugly. Many of them don't close well so I use a piece of cotton ball and a dental tool to stuff it so shot doesn't end up in my action.
I'm still shooting in the mid 20s and a couple of straights with these so I believe the ugly crimp is not effecting the compression/charge, or am I wrong on that??
MEC 9000 (disconnected the auto rotation), reloading 2 1/2" 1/2 oz # 9, using LIL GUN, Bushing #12 - getting right around 14grain. I have not crono'd the round.
