damon32382 Posted August 30, 2022 Share Posted August 30, 2022 (edited) Loaded plenty of pistol on my XL750. Finally gearing up to load 300 Blackout as my first rifle round. I’ll be loading mostly subsonic to help preserve the brass(lower pressures and I got a Rugged 45 can on the way that’s rated for 300 Subs) Anyway, I plan on trying either Hornady or RCBS dies with a Lee FCD. (Please let me know if this is a bad choice) Not starting a debate, but in other forums/posts that I’ve read, people act like crimp will save the day from bullet setback. After countless hours of researching and messing around with my press, it’s my understanding that preventing bullet setback is neck tension, not crimp on pistol rounds. All crimping does is eliminate flare/belling. Wouldn’t this apply to loading rifle as well(aside from flaring/belling, I know you don’t flare the case mouth on a rifle round).
