Are you guys saying that the taper crimp is doing the swageing, or the sizer ring? Also, it isn't hard to pull a bullet after running it through this die. I've done it and still measured .452 on my boolits.
The sizer ring. Some FCDs are tighter than others. Mine is on the tight side. I could open it up a bit with some heavy polishing but I have left it as is. When I pull my cast bullets I get about a .001" lip at the case mouth, which tapers to .0005" at the base of the bullet. Here is a pic I posted in a previous thread (middle is a fresh bullet, the bottom one was pulled)
