    I ordered and received a thousand 38spl 158 gr HP bullets
    from Berry Mfg. The bullets do not have a cannelure.
    What is the best way to crimp these bullets?

    A "Lee Carbide Factory Crimp Die" works great. I use them a lot.

    I also use the Lee dies, but any crimping/bullet seat die should work.
