That looks good and nice crimp! I don’t crimp 9mm but to remove the bell and I don’t crimp 223 much either. Did you trim those cases to get that crimp so nice

Straight-wall handgun cases don't normally require trimming. Bottle-neck rifle case do require trimming after a few reloads.

What helped me here was all the same make of brass with same number of loadings.

Thanks for noticing my crimps ! ! !

Do you taper crimp your 9mm? Taper crimping is best for semi-auto handgun ammo. Taper crimping is very forgiving to different lengths of cases.

Just ordered mine. Not bad price I guess, got 100 with 2 spoons for 28 and free shipping
I need to search my purchase history to see what I paid for mine. Seems like I got a lot more than that for less, but who knows. A quick search shows that to be the cheapest.

Trimming is the worst. I have a Dillon swager and it ain’t that bad.
