Plus 1 on Geewilliker's #5 post...excessive roll crimp actually results in looser bullet/case neck tension...a taper crimp works well for me and doesn't actually require a dedicated taper crimp die...you can use either a .45 LC or ACP sizing die, with the decapping rod removed, to taper the case mouth as necessary to prevent bullet movement in recoil.
