I made the plunge and have reloading equip. on order (Lee Classic turret press). I have a question about crimping. I ordered the Lee dies with the Factory Crimp die. Near as I can determine this is a roll crimp. Is this true. (The Lee info I could find references Rifle dies so I'm not sure). Also, they appear to claim thier Factory Crimp die will will work with bullets that have no cannelure is this true?

Thanks

I thnik, don't quote me on this, that if you don't have a cannelure you will get a taper crimp.

Yes with that die you can crimp bullets without the cannelure.

Auto pistol calibers generally come with a taper crimp die and revolver calibers generally come with a roll crimp die. Auto pistol bullets will not have a cannelure and revolver bullets will. In general.

Walkalong has the answer. To add to that...Most rifle FCDs will have a taper crimp also.
