I found what looks like a problem when loading the Remington's in R/P cases. Looking straight down at the end of the round it looks like the bullet is not centered in the case mouth. It looks like it is off centered just a slight amount.
I am using RCBS dies and seat and crimp in one step. 
What could I be doing wrong ?

I think more info is needed. Loading machine, dies, etc.

However, sometimes dies get misalighned during set up. What helps in these situations is tightening the lock rings with the case in the die and the ram full up...

Hornady LNL Ap progressive, rcbs dies
Could I be over crimping ?

highly suggest you seat and crimp in two separate stages.

I think I found what I was doing wrong. Over crimping. I beacked the die out and put a fresh case in position and run it into the die, then lowered the die til it touched the case and turned it slightly more. I now have a .357 crimp and the bullets look perfect.
