Roll Crimp Skived or Non Skived Hulls

Postby A5Collector » Thu Oct 28, 2021 6:29 pm

New to roll crimping. I usually fold crimp my shells. I just purchased some TSS from Hawglips and the loads call for a roll crimp. My question is can I use new skived hulls or should I use non skived hulls.

You can use either one. I have used both extensively, because sometimes you have to use whatever components you can get ahold of. It really depends on what crimper you are using. In my experience, UNskived hulls roll crimp a lot cleaner and look more professional. As silly as it sounds, I have also noticed differences with different gauges. I use the GAEP crimper and the BPI and I always have to experiment with different applications. Sometimes I use the BPI on skived hulls for the initial roll and then hit them with the GAEP to clean them up. Just experiment and see what works for you.
