Default BPI crimp starter

Thinking of adding one of these crimp starters to my ever increasing mountain of stuff . https://www.ballisticproducts.com/Su...tinfo/0740006/ My question is this , anyone that loads 8 gauge and has one is this jewel large enough to use on 8ís ? Iím intrested in it for of course 8ís and 10ís .

I bought one, but many of my hulls are trimmed, and therefore the skived portion is removed from trimming. I found it almost useless.

I should think itíll work fine on the trimmed Cheddercheese 10ís as theyíre not very thick at all . Iíd be intrested to see how it worked on the trimmed REM 10ís as theyíre a bit thicker . As to the 8ís I donít trim them so with the nice new WINís Iíd like to think itíll help . But I could very well be wrong

If you want or need deeper folds lower the crimp starter by putting a washer between it and the frame.

I’ve found not skiving the Remington 10s makes them last longer.

Iíve never done that in what would be called the correct way . The few times I tried I kinda debuted them so to speak with a pocket knife . Since I acquired a Robertís Industries case trimmer and donít use the band saw theyíre not frayed/rough so Iím good .

Another waste of money. I've trimed many different 12 and 10ga hulls and have never had a problem using the crimp starter that comes on a Mec. And I don't skive hulls.
