Do I need to crimp my .44 rem.mag.bullet if it is only going to be shot from a single shot barrel?

Re: crimping

If they are compressed loads as most hunting reloads are, I would.

Re: crimping

you need to put a crimp on your loads to help burn your powder with short barrel guns, you need a little back pressure. To check to see if your burning all your powder, lay and old sheet on the ground ,fire a couple shots, look and see if you see any unburnt powder laying on the sheet, if so try a little more crimp, if that dosent , go to a faster burning powder,till you find that sweet spot. Its like tunnin a car motor up you dont want unburnt gas running out of the tail pipe. Bob
