No cannelure, no crimp on 45ACP, for example.
My school pals and I spent a hard little while trying to get a bullet
out of one of these (we didn't know the trick of seating the bullet
a little *deeper*, first, to break that seal), discovering that the
cement hung onto the bullet lots harder than the case mouth could.
We never did get the bullet pulled - finally *sawed* the sucker open!
