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.
“Nine-tenths of tactics are certain, and taught in books: but the irrational tenth is like the kingfisher flashing across the pool, and that is the test of generals. It can only be ensured by instinct, sharpened by thought practicing the stroke so often that at the crisis it is as natural as a reflex.” ~ T. E. Lawrence
