Here's what I do...

First of all, I trim my cases to get a uniform case length. Some people dont think its necessary to do this. But me, I dont mind doing it, and it helps with the taper crimp. Plus, I seat my LEAD bullets according to UncleNicks recommendations, so that I just headspace off of the bullet. It is supposed to reduce leading and increase accuracy with lead bullets. (and seems to work!)

When I have my cases ready for loading, I'll flare one, then run it through the taper crimp with out a bullet. I adjust my taper crimp die until I get a measurement of the case mouth equal to a case that has been sized. Once I get that, I just go to town primering, charging, seating, crimping... (repeat as necessary......!)
