    Will a lee factory crimp die, put a hard enough crimp on LEAD bullets, on a 30-30 cartidge, so that the tubular magazine spring won't push the bullets back into the case?

    Yes.
    You can adjust the crimp to where it deforms the bullet and the brass pretty much if you want to.

    If you cast bullet has a crimp groove

    I just got an RCBS roll crimp die for my 30-30 rounds,and it sure puts a nice rolled crimp into the groove.I feel very sure that these rounds will not be able to creep on me.
    I had to call RCBS because their website doen't indicate that the die roll crimps.The nice lady assured me it would,and she was right.
