.44 Russian

I have 500 loaded but the crimp is suspect. I seem to run out of travel to get a decent crimp. What are my options? Thanks

Simplest option may be to move the lock ring to the under side of the tool head.

I had an RCBS die for crimping 44 Russian and 44 Special, so I used it on the tool head.

RE: .44 Russian

What brand of dies are you using? Are they specific to 44 Russian? Dillon 44 Mag/Spl dies will not adjust down far enough to crimp a 44 Russian, due to the short case length. For ease of adjustment, adding another seat/crimp die in the last station is recommended.
