noway, not to take this thread in a different direction, but since you're new to reloading you might start with a 147gr bullet that has a rebated base.  The advantage of these bullets is that you don't need to bell the case in order to get the bullets to seat properly.  As a result, you also don't need to taper crimp because there is no remaining bell to remove.  My favorite 147gr rebated base bullet is the Zero 147gr JHP.

I have to say this forum is the best thing since sliced bread for reloading.

That's the double barreled Proctor Silex.

You can tell it's dangerous becasue it has black plastic hand grips.
