Are you adjusting the seating/crimping die correctly? If memory serves, the die should be backed out about 3 full turns off the shell holder. You can get in the ballpark by backing the seater and the die way out. Put a factory round in the shellholder and run the ram to the top of the stroke. Screw the die in until you feel it start to press on the case. Then screw the seater plug in until it rests on top of the bullet.
