Roll Crimp/Round Edge Tools and lots more by GAEP and OMV

bulletPlastic cartridge case roll-crimp or roll edge closure tooling.

We were first to introduce these "spinner" or "bobbins"  to the UK reloader manufactured in Italy they are fantastic quality  giving the best professional/commercial finished look to your cartridge we have seen. 

This is because these types of tools are as used on the commercial loading machines.

But the benefit is more that just visual appearance as a tighter more uniform crimp also gives better ballistics due to more consistent and efficient powder burn. 

Warning - from time-to-time rto (roll turnover) tools are listed on a popular auction web site. We strongly suggest before you buy such an item you ask for the makers details and if made in the UK then think twice before you buy as results may disappoint. We are so confident in the GAEP/OMV tool we offer a 100% refund (excluding P&P) should it not live up to your expectations.

Available for traditional over-shot card closure or close the case by "star-crimping" in your Lee or MEC reloader and then put a totally professional rolled edge on  - fantastic for auto shotguns. Special Slug version also available.
Use the spinner together with the brass cartridge case holder and a simple small bench drill to rotate the tool clockwise at about 600rpm. To reduce friction and aid tool life we recommend a film of light oil should be applied to the case edge. Very easy to do via a small sponge with a few drops of 3in1 oil added.  

Do not confuse these with "cheaper" UK made offerings.
The joy of using quality tooling continues long after the price is forgotten - so buy the best. 

They are available in sizes 36ga (.410) to 10ga.
