I recently bought some copper plated 9MM
125 grain rn. To reload with.

My ? is that the crimp line is almost Impossile to see, after the plating was put on.

Any ideas on getting the correct depth!

Nominal OAL should be around 1.15 inches. But you should verify that length in the bullet manufactures manual.

Good Luck...

There is rarely, if ever, a "crimp line" on bullets meant to be taper crimped. You should use a caliper to adjust and occassionally check your OAL. And that length should be based on the mfg.'s data as Joe stated.
