Sometimes I like it rough, I like the way it kicks me. But I need to have as much in the tube as possible - I'm a big bore capacity whore - so three inchers just won't do it for me.

No. Recoil may shake the bullets out of position. It mostly happens with powerful calibers in light weapons (Ruger LCR people: let rip 5 rounds of +p, while having an uncrimped cartridge in the sixth chamber, then look at it and compare it to an unabused one).
Always crimp that shit, unless your gun is a single-shot. It won't affect accuracy negatively unless you have a straight-wall nonbelted cartridge, since these headspace on the case mouth, but it's free, and makes your shots more consistent due to less variation in bullet position and thus free flight and powder burn rates.
