Bought some 62 grain soft points for a pretty good deal. They are cannelured. Have my 223 die set perfectly for loading 60 grain max. Accuracy is off the chart. That is my precision load. These will be plinkers. I hate to adjust the die (no crimp) as its nails. Question is do I "have" to crimp the cannelures or no? Never loaded one

Same here. I can see how ammo for a gas gun might need to be crimped, though I do not crimp the ammo for the LR-308. It is certainly possible I may have to crimp for AR-15, when I finally get around to load development for it.

Straight walled cases I crimp, tubular magazine rounds I crimp but like Redchevy the rest do not get crimped. On the AR rounds I will have a little more neck tension to hold the bullets in place but no crimp.
