Even assuming the jacket is "deformed", it'll be deformed uniformly around the entire bullet, which will NOT change the center of gravity. Of course, if something is severely out of adjustment like in your picture, all bets are off.
Exactly... its not as if a bullet leaves the bore in perfect condition.. the core is squeezed and deformed by the rifling more than a properly adjusted crimp die deforms it.... But like the die, its doing it from all sides, so no harm is done to the bullets flight....
