I have a slight rim or bulge at the end of the shell. Cam is adjusted as low as it will go. What adjustment do I need to make to get rid of this? Thanks, guys.

What hulls are you using. You should be able to lower the tapering die to move the material in. If the side of the hull starts buckling, raise the tapering die until it stops buckling.

LC,
It's evident that your finishing die, (last position on the press), is set too high. Lower it until it puts just a slight taper on the end of the hull. Doing this will remove the bell, bulge, rim, from the end of the hull. You may need to back off the cam a tad if you are getting too much swirl in the crimps.
