I worked up some reloads for my AR about a month ago and took them out for a test run.  Long story short...the gun jammed on the 2nd shot of the 3rd string.  I pulled the bolt back and found the bullet had been pushed back into the case, so I bought a Lee FCD and crimped the rest of my reloads.  I haven't tried them yet because I'm a little worried I've got too much crimp.  Let me know what you think from the picture.  Thanks.

I think it's o.k.,,,pop a couple,,,see what happens. Unless you load was borderline tobegin w/, and it's 110 degrees in the shade, yiur probably GtG.
 
I use the Lee FCD for different cartridges quite regularly, very handy item.
You should take a look at the clinch I put on 30/30 reloads.Wink
