loading short gun cartridges is a pretty straight forward proposition, and with my .44's & .45 colt's a roll crimp is needed. this is contrary of course to the .45acp that requires a taper crimp for proper headspacing. this then is my problem. generally, after sizing, my cases are deprimed and belled. using the minimum amount seems to make more reliable ammunition AND holds the bullet better. this practice however, sometimes shaves lead.
using a single stage press, is there a method that works best or is it accepted to have some case failures ?? any ideas?
