I'd certainly tighten up your crimp to around .466 - .468 for starters. .471 -.472 for jacketed bullets.

you need to measure just the very last portion of you case mouth with the knife edge of your calipers. you're measuring way to far down based on the photo. for Semi wad cutters forget OAL and simply measure from the bullet shoulder to the end of the case.. .920 or so is what you need no matter the weight
