In this installment, Philip Massaro completes cartridge assembly by demonstrating how to seat the bullet. He covers how to use a micrometer seating die for reloading, as well as various ways to crimp handgun bullets.

Massaro demonstrates seating bullets for the .30-06, .458 Win. Mag, .357 mag. and .45 ACP cartridges, each of which presents its own idiosyncracies.

Learn how to seat bullets with cannelure using a roll-crimp to hold the bullet in place, in addition to a taper crimp on the .45 ACP.
