Forster Seating Dies – Non-Crimping

Q. Why are your seating dies non-crimping? I have heard that crimping hunting ammo provides assurance that the bullet will not fall back into the case due to handling and recoil.

A. You are correct that crimping is preferred for hunting rounds, but our Bench Rest Seater dies are designed and manufacture for maximum accuracy. The crimping operation does introduce variation in bullet release which can be detrimental to accuracy.
