The important things are these- that the bullet is not seated too deeply, (pressure spikes) that the crimp is firm enough that the bullet doesn't set back upon contact with the feed ramp, and that it functions through your particular gun. I went to a taper-crimp die about 13 years ago, and my .45 ACP reloading woes ceased to exist.

0.004 overal disparity in OAL? Still under SAMMI max OAL, and the rounds feed through your gun? Don't worry. Be happy.

PS- NEVER accept "high primers" as an OK thing. Squeeze harder, or get a new priming tool.
I'm inclined to think if a man hasn't gotten his point across in 4912 attempts, 4913 probably isn't going to do it.
