you might want to post this on one of the AR-15 forums in their reloading section.

What issues are you having? and are you trying to use a lee factory crimp die or just the roll crimp built into the die?

what bullets are you using? they are .452 dia correct. you can not use a .451 dia bullet in the 450 bushmaster.
