.308 Cannalure ?

Just bought some Hornady .308 SST 165gr. They have a cannalure do i have to crimp if they due. I have been reading conflicting info..Has any one had any success with these rounds. I'm going to use TAC and Reloader 15. Thanks

P.S. Getting ready for a desert trip this Saturday...

As Reloaders we should adapt the load to the gun, not the gun to the load.

You don't have to crimp into the cannelure. In fact, some argue that it hurts accuracy. What are you shooting it out of?

If used on a bolt action, it's not needed. However, if you like to slam the bolt around (not a great idea), then put the crimp. If on a semi auto, use the crimp. It helps prevent setback as the round strips from the mag, hits the feed ramp and enters the chamber. A bolt action tends to have a smoother, gentler process,

Well the cannalure is set high on the bullets, so i seated them just above the mouth. I should be OK. I knew you did not have to crimp from prior post, but after reading stuff on the World Wide Web. You can tend to get confused. But i knew i would get a straight answer here. Thanks
