bossman: Thanks for the encouragement. I'm already planning my next adjustments based on some great feedback hear. Based on some of the other experiences I've read about early efforts, I'm sure a lot of first timers have the same kind of issues until everything is dialed in.
HiBC: I think the seater does have a crimping function which may need some adjusting. I think I also need to be more diligent on my post production inspection. On second look and going back to my manual, I believe I do see signs of over crimping. Also, I double checked each round I ejected to make sure the bullet was, in fact, still in the cartridge. That's one horror story I don't need to star in
