    Has any one used the brass "super crown crimpers" that Ballistic Products sells.
    Do they work as well, better, not as well?

    Thanks, Ken

    I have one and use it only on new uncrimped cases to start them. I don't use it on fired cases as it does not spin to self align with the already crimp indexed cases and will try to start a new crimp and ruin cases. Bill

    Bill Horn is correct. I use mine when putting together game loads with new un-crimped hulls. I crimp 3 or 4 times before the final finish crimp stage which seems to help hold a nice clean tight crimp.
