Simple Fold Crimp Load Process - TSS

Postby Fishh2o » Sun Mar 06, 2016 4:35 pm

This is how I load my Fold Crimp load. I use a MEC Sizemaster and GAEP finishing tool.

Roll with it. If you stay above 55 the wheel wont fall off.

What's the deal with the drill press and the GAEP roller after fold crimping the shell? Just curious.

It firms up the crimp, provides nice taper at top, and uniform pressures. His folds were nice, but the gaep can fix up just about any weak folds to perfection.

Fish, WHAT are you loading in 12ga FGM that takes a gas seal AND a thick cork wad?? 7/8oz or something? I know your thread says TSS loading, but that looks like #3 steel? And if you're loading that light a load, why not just use Fed TopGun or Rem GC hulls that will easily hold that much shot? Just wondering... I wouldn't waste a FGM on anything but 493 gr loads heh.

I like to use the Finisher on my fold crimps to get a uniform crimp and it just cleans them up. If you have your loader set up right you really dont "NEED" one.

I do not use buffer in any of my loads.
