    That's usually the result of a weak/soft crimp area of the hull and a shot/wad column that is a tad long. Some wads may be stiffer than others making it more obvious or difficult to get a good crimp closure. I've had this happen slightly with stiff wads like the Dusters in certain hulls.

    Reload crimps showing a pronounce dome indicate there is too much of something inside the case. It could be too much powder, too tall a wad, or too much shot. If it is caused by too much powder, it could present a very dangerous load. The word here is caution.

    I had one that looked like that. It had 34.6 grains of 700X in it. I hit the target with that one, but the next few were pretty shakey.
