Why? What are you feeding?

Normally, a taper crimp does a great job of keeping the bullet from telescoping back into the case (which is what magazine fed firearms want to do as the bullet smacks into the feed ranp). With revolvers, the force acting on the bullet tries to jerk it out of the case forward (the cylinder of a revolver doing a good imitation of an inertia bullet puller as the gun fires), which is what a roll crimp is best at stopping.
