    Simple question really - does all Lake City rifle brass contain the mil crimp in the primer pocket or do they produce non mil crimped brass as well?

    Anything from Lake City that is headstamped "Match" will not have crimped primer pockets.

    +1. Also anything headstamped "NM" or "LR".

    And last time I checked, .30 Carbine brass was not crimped by LC or anyone else loading for Uncle Sugar.

    The crimps on .45 and 9mm brass are usually so light, they just make seating primers a little stiff.

    Ah, but you're talking rifle, aren't you? Even "Special Ball" intended to sorta replace 7.62x51 Match had crimped primers. That's the USGI brass without the NATO circle...
