Lee Challenger press and dies crimping

ok newbie handloader here. Just getting setup and I did a test bullet seating for .308 winchester. from my understanding cartridges for semi auto rifles should be crimped. These loads will be for a M1A/SOCOM16. When I seated the bullet for the correct length of the cartridge, there is no crimp applied. I had previously test seated another bullet and it was seated too far into the casing, but it did create a crimp. what might I have done wrong that a crimp wasn't made for the correctly seated cartridge? Im using standard Lee dies. Is it the press or dies?
