What Is A Crimp?
A crimp with regard to cartridge ammunition is the bend
of the case mouth against the bullet. The crimp is located at
the top of the case. Crimping is used to hold the bullet to the
casing. There are two types of crimps, a roll crimp and a taper
crimp. Not all ammunition has crimps.
