SL 900 Crimp issues

Have or had everything adjusted-I thought

Running into issues with the final crimp

I'm using STS hulls  with 1 1/8 shot charge

when I crimp- it is finishing way back in the case leaving a hole the shot can pour through- is this normal for this shell

If not how do I adjust it where it crimps correctly

any help would be appreciated

RE: SL 900 Crimp issues

STS hulls tend to be irregular in length. Use calipers, find the longest fired hulls, use those to adjust both the start and final crimp. A hole in the center after final crimp indicates the start crimp needs to go down an additional 1/4 turn or so.
