First 10 for 2016

Post by Ranger007 » February 11th, 2016, 7:30 am

I have my first 10 for this year rolled up. How do these rolls looks? Had right at 1/4" over OSC but these crimps look to be a hair shorter than the ones I had rolled last year. All nice and tight with no rattle though.

Hopefully get to to the pattern board today. Have some new chokes for the M2 and a Beretta 390 20 gauge (backup gun) to try out

Yep just 1 coat of nail polish. Not sure if it totally water proof but has to be better than just OSC

gaepreloading@hotmail.co.uk

Google GAEP they have a web site but the OTP is not on there. I can't compare it to any other roll crimpers only one I have. I had a few weeks to burn waiting on other components so I ordered it. Takes about 2 weeks to get here

Email Kevin and tell him you want a OTP roll crimper

Yes very addictive.I was at the board all evening will post up some patterns in a little while
