Yeah. I was wondering about that. It doesn't seen to have a middle ground though. It's crimped too much or not enough and the bullet spins in the case.
It my first time through with hand gun loads so I'm still learning... From trial and error for the most part.

Those look more like .357 Sigs than 9mm.

That a VERY hefty crimp. Might be enough to cause over pressure. Some bullet seating dies put a small crimp on the cartridge, so that some loaders skip the "crimp" or fourth die altogether.

I use a Lee die set with a crimp die, but I have NEVER seen that much of a crimp on a 9mm before.

Careful.

17 miles west of Tucson AZ near a town called Three Points. I am down a couple of miles of dirt road so in SHTF situation we won't be getting many raiders.

I agree your taper crimp looks way tight,a normal taper crimp should be so slight that you can't hardly tell it's taper crimped.

What i've found that works pretty good for me for setting up the press and seating die for a taper crimp.

I start out with the die body raised high enough in the press that it will not taper crimp,lower the bullet seater and adjust until you get the correct COL cartridge overall length.
Once you achieve the correct COL,now screw the seater all the way up. Now slowly start lowering your die body down until you achieve the correct taper crimp.
Once you have your taper crimp adjusted while the cartridge is still in the press,now lower your seater back on that cartridge...

You have just properly adjusted your die and press for the correct COL and taper crimp.

One way to tell is to look at the pupil in the snake's eye. If it is round like a human's, it is non venemous. If it is catlike or a slitted looking pupil, then it is venemous. There is only one exception known to this rule. The deadly Coral snake has a round pupil, but is still venemous and quite deadly.

There is a milk or corn snake that looks a lot like a Coral snake. Here is a rhyme to tell the difference between the two by looking at the colored rings. "Red next to black, friend to Jack. Red next to yellow will kill a fellow."

You just gotta show 'em who the boss is!
Do you know the name of that Frank Lloyd Wright house? We have several of them here in Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. They are BEAUTIFUL homes, indeed. When I was quite young, my Mom and I would drive around and pass as many FLW homes as we could. My Mom absolutely loved his designs.
