    I know, right. The M1 carbine taper crimp works perfect. Maybe they think that they need the crimp to fit in the forcing cone, but I've never seen milsurp with that much crimp.

    Russian ammo has a taper crimp to fit the forcing cone. For this reason case mouth cracks are rare.

    The sharp shoulder crimp of Fiochi and other non-Russian manufacturers of the 7.62 Nagant revolver cartridge tends to cause case mouth cracks. I wish they would learn from the Russians how to make this cartridge.
