Yes, I am new at this. That's one of the reason I mentioned that I just reloaded 250 rds of 9mm. The new die set was for the 9mm and worked fine, the used set for the .45 came with my reloader. I seem to be guiding it in okay.
You may have an idea on the crimp. I was adjusting the bullet seating depth and I may be starting to crimp before the bullet is fully seated. I'll check it out. Thanks!
