I don't crimp mine. They work fine without it imho.
I don't crimp FMJ bullets 6.5 Arisaka....

However, in 8mm Mauser and 7.62x54R... I use a Lee factory crimp die.

Re: What long range load works for your Type 38?

Rapidrob... My T-38 bore slugged at .266 dia. I was able to hit a "man-size" paper target at 200 yrd (bullets all over the paper). I was loading up some Hornaday SP. and they measured .264 dia. So... I'm guessing my groups will improve with cast bullets sized to .268 dia.??

The only cast bullet I have for 6.5 is the Lee/Mid South 160gr "cruise missile". With it's large flat nose, it won't feed from the magazine in my Arisaka. Actually, it will feed from one side, but not the other, I think the left side jams. I'm thinking something more like a round nose, or "semi poi...

Re: My M4 clone

Nice M4 build!! Just got done building the same rifle. However, It's designed for optics (red-dot, scope, etc.)

I was going to buy an entry -level rifle.... Just wanted to learn how ARs work and save a few$$$.

If you can save up for the PEPR mount, I'd highly recommend it. Mine has the QD locking pins.

Just ordered a PEPR mount!! Planning on sighting in my build next week :dance: :dance:
