I like to seat my bullets first and find the right depth, then use a crimping die to finish up. I have tried using dies that seat and crimp at the same time, usually have one or two not set up right and would need to pull the rounds and start over with them.

There is once fired brass for sale online. Usually its from multiple manufactures in the same lot. If your not trying to push every pound of pressure you can get it shouldnt matter for most hunting applications.

Here is a source with a quick google search. 30-30 brass I have never dealt with them. Check for reviews if worried.

Well thanks for the replys guys. I tried to order from both places. Once u put them in your cart they are unavailable. I can't see paying cabelas that much. Will just have to keep looking I guess.

Same time, my RCBS dies are built that way, don't forget the bullet must have a cannelure for the crimp to go into, or the bullet will creep under recoil.

Never loaded 30-30 but my Sierra manual confirms a lot of the same info already stated...

Case length is critical... And Sierra recommends crimping as a separate step.

I seat and crimp seperately for the 30-30 because I have Lee dies and the die set came with the factory crimp die. Supposedly you can crimp noncannelured bullets with the factory crimp die. I haven't tried it in a tube fed rifle, but I do really like the factory crimp dies, have them for several pistol and rifle rounds. I seat and crimp in one step for the 45/70 though because I don't have the factory crimp die for it, and have never had a problem. You do have to make sure all your brass is trimmed evenly if you are doing it in one step, however. And Hornady brass for the 45/70 and several other lever action cartridges is shorter than SAAMI spec in order seat their longer than standard rubber tipped bullets. Means that if you have non-Hornady dies you can't crimp with the seating die. At least I can't adjust my Lee or RCBS dies down far enough to do so. I don't care to load Hornady brass for a lever action for that reason, because I don't have Hornady dies.

I use the Lee trimmers that goes in a drill to trim all my brass and it works great, pretty much impossible to screw up unless you break it, because there are no adjustments.

I'll recommend pretty much all the Lee reloading equipment I've used except the Load-All progressive press, particularly to the hobby or new reloader. Price is right and everything except the progressive press is very user friendly. I love their dies, and they were the first to come out with a really userfriendly and pocketbookfriendly priming tool (RCBS and others have since copied it).
