The profile crimp is a crimp that uses a taper crimp and a roll crimp combined. You will want to get you seating depth set first. The ease into the crimp. You do not want to much crimp.
Once it is crimped you will not move the bullet.

My personal feeling is that it was designed for jacketed bullets in use with BIG BORES, and ARs. The jury is still out for a decision about the use of the profile crimp and a cast bullet.
Edit : Forgot to add that you can adjust the crimp too much or too tight and it will distort the bullet and create the look of a Heeled Bullet. So start off light and see if you get bullet jump and the then proceed to adjust accordingly.

FINALLY GOT THE RELOADING DIES ALL SET UP. THE DILLON SHELL HOLDER PLATE FOR MY 550 IS A LITTLE LOOSE FOR THE 475L CASES SO I RESIZE ONLY IN A CONVENTIONAL PRESS, AND USE A HANDHELD PRIMER, THE OTHER STEPS I AM DOING ON THE DILLON. HAVE NOT SHOT IT MUCH. PRETTY MUCH HAVE DECIDED TO RELOAD 475L AND NOT 480R. RIGHT NOW I AM TRYING TO DECIDE IF I WANT TO RELOAD BULLETS IN THE 340gr RANGE OR 380gr RANGE OR HEAVIER. I DO NOT HAVE ENUFF AVAILABLE TRIGGER/RANGE TIME AND I HAVE SOME 45 COLT RELOADING PROJECTS THAT I NEED TO GET TO FIRST. BUT THE GUN IS AWESOME.

45Man,
If you decide it?s not for you; I?ll like to be on the list to purchase it. It?s a beautiful firearm and I?m sure a real shooter too. Enjoy!
