In the article on bullet crimping by Randy Garrett ("Avoiding Crimp
Failure," March/April 2018) perhaps the 310-grain bullet did not move because it has about 50 percent more surface area on its O.D.
CRIMPING IS A reliable process, provided design and process engineers follow the crimp
supplier's guidelines on crimp
wire capacity and the crimp
The disassembled crimps
of Wire 21 (12cm long) are shown in Figure 6 and Figure 8.
LISTENING TO RELOADING TALK AT THE gun club, you'd think that crimp
is part voodoo, part rocket science.
The author told how two years ago in a eureka moment he discovered crimps
in some second hand tackle and thought it would be a good idea to use them as tube flies.
Mark the barbed fitting with a permanent marker once you've made the crimp
. Before turning the water back on, go through and check for the mark on each fitting to make sure it's been crimped
Generally, the formation of crimps
in a skein is more difficult for a curved interface than a straight interface.
Polyester fiber tow having substantially uniform primary and secondary crimps
The automated equipment pleats and folds balloon catheters and crimps
metal stents, compressing them down to small enough diameter and optimized profile for insertion into the body through a blood vessel.
are a fabulous beauty flashback.
Therefore, through waveform signature analysis, defects, and possibly their nature, in subsequent faulty crimps
can be inferred by comparing the new acquired signal characteristics to that of the normal crimp
press case walls against the smooth bullet's side, and taper crimp
dies are minimally adjustable to help gauge that pressure.
A: The Lee Factory Crimp
die for straight wall pistol and revolver cases has a carbide ring at the base and a taper crimp
at the top, thus, it sizes the case again--if it needs it--as it crimps
The electronic crimper, a hand-held, motor-driven, battery-operated device, crimps
1-mm aluminum seals onto standard 12 mm x 32 mm (2mL) crimp-top vials.
