I read this in a manual and what I do is to back the crimp way out of my die and seat my bullet, see how it seats in my barrel, adjust the seating nob turn, check fit to my barrel and keep repeating that cycle until the cartridge seats properly.

Make sure the ammo fits in my magazine and feeds with that OAL

Once I get the OAL that works with that bullet in my barrel I back the seating nob way out, put the round in the shell holder and run the ram up, and then adjust the die for crimp.

Once I get the crimp I want, then I bring the seating nob down to touch the top of the bullet.

Now my die is setup for my gun with that bullet
