Where do you buy a LeGendre side crimp?

The LSC is not available commercially. You must make one. Here's how.

How much does the LGC affect the amount of times a case can be reloaded

Cutright-

To answer your question properly, some reloader would have had to set up a controlled test of case longevity, with a set of cases divided between side-crimp and non-side-crimp techniques, loaded the same except for the crimp. I cannot recall any posts on this forum reporting results of such a test.

Some anecdotal information bearing on your question: I have some cases that have been reloaded 17 times, with at least half of these reloads requiring use of a side crimp. Almost all loads in these cases have been run above the SAAMI pressure max in my bolt rifles. I certainly haven't babied them. I performed a FL resize with each loading. I anticipate getting some more reloads from them.

How many reloads are you getting from your cases?

Haven't been using the crimp until my recent loads. I've only had my gun a year so I haven't maxed out any brass yet. I have loaded my original brass about ten times or so
