- EASILY learn to use this tool. You don’t need any special knowledge or manuals to start using the tool for shotshell reloading. You can immediately begin to use it after fixing it on the surface. As the speed of shotgun cartridge spin is low, you don’t need to use any additional lubricants.
- More AFFORDABLE prices in comparison to other manufacturers. Product prices are more affordable in comparison to other manufacturers of shotgun cartridge reloading tools.
- A STEADIER result of shotgun shell crimp. Manually spinning a cartridge is a more controllable process during which you achieve the necessary result and a steadier crimp, in contrast to reloading with a power tool.

It works with 70/76 mm shotgun cartridges.
It works with plastic and paper shotgun shells.
The body it composed of a weak pot metal, however, this is fine as this metal is more than strong enough to roll crimp all plastic shotgun shells.
The only drawback is you can not roll crimp mini shells as the push rod is just too short, will have to cut the rod and weld/grind/polish an extension to get the last half inch. I did not remove stars as the roll crimper does exactly what it is designed to do.
This works fine. No instructions, so hit YouTube. It’s super simple.
Most difficult thing is knowing how long to trim your hulls if you’re using once fired.
I’m not disappointed at all.
I haven't used a drill bit crimper; but, in researching I felt there were too many negatives..
* it appears you have to spin the bit for a while and heat it up before it starts working right. Many people said to do your first crimp in a batch on a throwaway hull.
* I don't have a drill press and didn't like the thought of having my corded drill knocking stuff of my bench.
* You need to purchase or make some kind of vice to hold the shell while you crimp.
* You have to use a lot of "feel"... I just don't think I could be consistent with RPMs and push pressure.
I bought this and it's perfect. I mounted a board to the leg of my bench so that I could setup the crimper in a vertical position. It's now part of the bench without using any of the work surface, there are no power cords around the work surface, and the vertical position keeps the shot nice and level while crimping.
With this you consistently get perfect crimps.... Just a little pressure and 6-7 turns of the handle is all it takes.
The only downside is 3" and larger hulls will not fit. It's fine with me though as I'm only loading target shells and low recoil slugs.
