    I tried taper vs roll crimp today and could not tell a difference I will do some more testing Monday. 

    Then you don't have the roll crimp die adjusted correctly. 

    The case mouth should be turned into the bullet.

    I really appreciate all the great advice  i think i will have a roll crimp vs taper crimp shootout and see who wins and go with that. 



    Factory ammo is roll crimped.

    Roll crimp 'holds' better.

    One of the things, heck, the main thing, I like about Trail Boss is that even with a maximum load, it has practically no recoil.  I use it in every pistol caliber from .32 S&W to .45 Colt, and I think it's great.

    I also use it in rifles.  Things like .30-30, .30-40, .30-'06, .45-70, 7mm Mauser, 8mm Mauser, and a few others.  No, it's not high performance, but it creates negligible recoil loads that are good for 200 to 300 yards.  And that's good enough for me.   I even hit a target once at 500 yards with my .45-70 Trapdoor.   Once.  Out of several tries.   It's capable of accuracy, but I myself am not so much so.  :)

    There really ain't any when you add true rifle calibers

    @The Original Lumpy Gritz you wanna tell him or should I?



    Personally I think Trail Boss sucks. It stinks and is so dirty I'd rather use real black powder(so I do). Find some Alliant Unique; not quite as much volume, but a really good powder. 

    That was a Unique statement about how versatile Unique truly is :lol:

    BTW, agree 110% about that other powder

  5. The Bass Pro HQ store here in Springfield MO has selves packed with ammo. 

    No powder, primers or shot for reloading. 

    The gun selection was excellent and the best stocked I've seen in over a year.
