LNL Press and RCBS Taper Crimp

Okay this is my first progressive press and the first time in a LONG time that I have reloaded rifle or pistol. I went through all of the steps to set the press up and each station is a non-issue except for the bullet seat and taper crimp. I cannot seem to get a taper crimp which will prevent the bullet from seating deeper and deeper into the case due to the effects of recoil. I'm not sure how much deeper I can go with the taper crimp, and the bullet seat plug is almost all the way down.

Bullet is the Hornady XTP hollow point (500 freebies with the press). Should I just drop the taper crimp down more? I am beyond spec based on RCBS recommended taper dimensions. I believe that I am measuring .389" at the back of the bullet and .381" at the front.
