Toney, follow the above link. It may be of help to you in setting up the dies. They show the dies being set-up on the Dillon machines but the same procedure, I believe, can be used on any press. Do the dies screw into your press? If not, they are probably SDB dies. If you're still stumped just call or email Dillon and they'll help you out.

Dillon Dies

I can not comment of Dillon Dies...
All a "Taper Crimp die" is a sizing die with the decapping stim removed and readjusted to bring the case mouth around the bullet. Lee and Hornady dies give a lot of trouble getting the decapping stim back in place so, you are better off buying a used Lyman, RCBS etc. sizer die...
