JB, I managed to take a snap of a loaded case and the projectile. Pity about the quality of the image, bit like me fuzzy.
I believe the projectile is an old H&G design, as a lot of the good ones are. I do like a HBWC but trying to find decent quality swaged pills is getting harder. And at an affordable price.
The taper crimp aids in directing them into the cylinder, and with practice I don't even think twice these days.
Irish-PPC - Pretty much all you want to do is to put enough pressure on the pill so it doesn't move forward. Due to the softness of the lead it is easily deformed and made undersized. I have posted here before that I had a belling die made up at 357 and the same length as the HBWC so the HBWC's would slide in without causing the skirt to be crushed as most dies are made at 355 and short. Always a taper crimp in my books, but personal preference.
