I am new to reloading TSS but use to trap shoot heavy and would reload that until I got to where I shot enough I could buy loaded shells in bulk cheaper then reload. I always used the press to give them a crimp and have never dealt with rolled crimps so I'm curious why from the sounds of it most of you guys roll crimp instead of the traditional star fold?

The main reason I like to roll crimp is water proofing the loads. Sure you can seal both but I find the Roll to seal better. I also like the look and I done make a lot of noise back here with a cordless drill. My MEC Sizemaster you can hear across the house.
Roll with it. If you stay above 55 the wheel wont fall off.

Why are some of your loads specifically meant to be rolled? If I had to guess it would be to lower pressure.
Usually it's just a matter of fit. There is almost always a trade-off between pressure and velocity, so it's typically a wash as to whether you roll crimp to lower it, or back off the powder charge and fold crimp.
