I taper crimp my .45auto but not a real hard crimp (Auto pistols headspace on the mouth of the cartidge). For my .45Colt &.44mag. I usually taper crimp unless I'm really loading Hot then I just set my die to seat the bullet then I run them thru a Lee factory crimp die. I'll do some research & see if I can find you some info on crimping. (what the hell I'm bored tonight anyway) ;)

Here's some good info on Die adjustment & crimping

P.S. I suggest crimping anything with a crimp groove (thats what its for)!
