The main reason hulls crush:

1. too much final crimp pressure.

2. Too much powder,shot or wrong wad.

80% of the time it is too much crimp pressure due to incorrect
die settings.

3. "Open up" (backoff) your crimp die .
4. Use a "Factory hull" and reset your die to the correct setting.
5. "Mike" this measerment (setting) and log it in your records.

ALL my loads, shotshell, rifle, pistol; have Dia,overall,max,min,trim etc. !!
Reloading is an art........Try to make each load better than the last !!

Good luck Sage :thumbsup:

If you're using a MEC reloader, raise the cam a little.
