As mrawsom states, the proper way to set a sizing die is... raise ram, screw die until it touches the plate then go another 1/4 turn. Unless you know how much of a "bump" you want to give the shoulder use the suggested method.

Now to solve your problem. Chamber an unssized case. If it chambers easily resize and try again. If it doesn't chamber you either have the die set incorrectly or a bad die. If it chambers seat a primer. See if it chambers. If it doesn't your primer isn't seated deep enough. If it chambers seat a bullet and try to chamber the cartridge. If it doesn't either the bullet isn't seated deep enough in the case or it's the wrong caliber. There is no reason to crimp the bullet. Make sure your bullet seeating/crimp die isn't screwed down too far and over crimping.
Guns are not dangerous! People are! RKBA!
