First dummy rounds cycled

Only trouble i had was trying to set the seating/crimping die. Took some time but i finally got it. The rounds didnt want to cycle the first time , so i put some more crimp in them and all of them cycled in my s&w compact m&p 40. (My carry gun). Thanks for all the input. First baby steps outta the way. Now i got to put on my big boy pants and load and prime. (Waiting on powder).
Starline brass, 180gr hornady fmj fn, oal 1.115".
(Thats reloading jargon)

Wife was laughin at me using a digital caliper, before i started this hobby, i thought that calipers had to do with car brakes only.

Move to reloading please. I will get this right sooner or later.
