I know what a roll crimp and taper crimp is but what is a profile crimp? Lee sells factory crimp dies. What are these other two?

Factory crimp looks a little like it was done with a pair of crimping pliers. In the right place with the correct pressure of course. Factory crimp is the only thing that works in my 400 Corbon.

Profile crimp dies are not for cartridges that headspace on the case mouth eg. 9mm, 45ACP, 40S&W, 10mm.
