I am a TOTAL reloading newbie, and I just started working up my first few rounds of .45 ACP (4 rounds) to be exact. Before I go any further, I wanna make sure I understand how to properly "taper crimp" the bullet into place using Lee carbide dies. I understand that the top knurled nob is for setting the desired bullet depth, and I have them set properly, but how do I make the taper crimp? Is this set automaticaly at the same time the bullet is seated in the die, or do I have to adjust something once its up in the die. Not sure if I use the top knurled knob or just tighten the actual die itself for the crimp? Help is very much appreciated!


BTW- I am using the Lee Challenger single stage press if that helps.

The instructions ARE NOT all that clear.
