I'm still open to suggestions as nothing I try seems to work. They shoot ok but look terrible. It just doesn't seem right that when I get perfect results from 10, 12, 16 and 20 gauge that I should be having trouble with 28 and 410. I've tried oiling the case top, changing the column height, adjusting the time on the case to help warm it up (which helps a little with the roll but not the squashing). I've tried changing speeds but that seems to have little effect. I can go back to fold crimps which work well and are easier to assemble but I would like to have this in my bag of tricks. Just can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Frustrating after 50 years of reloading!
