Did some horse trading and ended up with a Ruger 6.5in 357. Dug around and finally came up with enough components to make up some 125 gr JHP shooters.
Now, I don't reload a ton of pistola bullets, but feel like I know enough to make a decent load. However, I seem to struggle with getting the proper seating depth and crimp pressure set without some deformation of the lead tips. I have went to a 4th die at times by seating the bullet without the crimp set - then placing the round into another crimp die with no seater plug - however that adds one more step.
Anybody else have this issue - or a easy fix?
