Roll or taper Crimp for 32 long wadcutter?

Post by gregbenner on Sun Jun 25, 2017 3:11 pm

I am using a Dillon 550, their crimp die for 32 S&W Long is a taper crimp.  I have been advised, at least for 38 wadcutters, that a crimp die might be better?

Do you agree?, If so, whose do you recommend that will work in a 550?

Taper crimp. Roll crimp only if you are having feeding issues.

Well, using just a taper crimp could cause feeding issues.
I prefer to copy factory rounds, which are still more accurate than my reloads, and they use a slight roll crimp.
Seat bullet just under flush with case mouth and roll crimp just enough so there is no sharp edge to case mouth.
Recommend Redding Profile Crimp Die.

Thx guys. In a different conversation with Dave Wilson (fc60), he suggested taper crimp as well.  Since that is what I have, I'll stick with it for a while
