7.62x39 seating die

Hey gang I'm trying to reload 7.62x39 with Redding 2 die set. Recommended by Redding on line. They suggested I get resizing button 41310 becase I told them I'm looking to load Hornady 7.62 x 39-Caliber .310" Diameter. Issue is when I get to seating these bullets the neck crimps. I have smashed about 4 already and don't know what to do to fix it. Any ideas?

Are you chamfering the inside of the case mouth? This is done by hand using LE Wilson deburring tool #16038.

Yes, I was. Finally figured it out. With our machines I needed to back the die off a lot of turns because it crimping too much. Redding for these crimps and seats in all one die.
