I'm reloading 9mm and using the Hornady seating and crimping die. The Hornady manual says "use little or no crimp". If I don't use any crimp the bullet is loose in the case. So I tried turning the crimp down 1/2 turn after it made contact with the case. That's where my problem is - is 1/2 turn a little crimp or a lot? Maybe it should be 1/4 or 1/8 or 1 full turn for a "little crimp".
