No reason loading blanks is any different from any other handload. The star crimp is the elusive part.

All the blanks I ever fired had very little powder (if any) and used a blank adapter so the bolt would cycle.


Blank adapters are easy to get, but I don't know how you would crimp the end of the round.

Not sure what your end goal is. I fired a few primers in empty 270 win cases just to see how loud they were. They were pretty loud, of course I was in a garage when I did it though.

What are you firing these in, and what will they be used for? You could just load it with a primer and no powder or bullet, and it be pretty loud.

How many do you really need? A star crimper runs about $100.00, just buy them.

Cheap enough! It is a good way to use up unwanted powder though.
