Loading for a friend's rifle,and was wondering about, to crimp or not to crimp? I due already load for my Ar-15 without crimp, and have had zero issues. I normally don't crimp rifle rounds and was just wondering which way to go. Any exp. with this issue greatly appreciated.

This is what I plan on trying!!
Imr 4064,4831, and 7828
Sierra 100 gr Pro Hunter .243 dia
Remington Nickel Brass, and WLR or CCI LR primers

Any thought's or input welcome!!

Crimps

A buddy of minr has a BAR in 30-06. He uses my reloaded rounds without a crimp. His accuracy is very good and he hasn't had any problems with my loads.

Crimp required for 243 Win. Browning Bar A

A crimp really isn't necessary, but you might wnat to use a very slight taper crimp, just for feeding reliability.

Another thing you might want to do is use small base dies when loading for any of the semi-autos.

I was suprised to find my BAR 30-06 is happy with about any hand load I feed it from 110gr to 180gr. I do full length resize for this gun.
