Anyone know how to adjust a Hornady taper crimp die?

I've got a Hornady 10mm./.40 S&W taper crimp die ( http://www.hornady.com/store/40-S-an...mp-Die-1-Each/ but I don't have the instructions. I know with other dies (Lee, for instance) the procedure is: back the crimp die out of the press, put a loaded round in the shellholder, run the ram up to the top of the stroke, screw the die down until it just makes contact with the cartridge, drop the ram down a bit and then turn the die in an additional amount. With Lee, IIRC, it's a half- to full-turn. Anyone know for sure what it is for the Hornady? Is this the correct procedure for the Hornady?

Thanks in advance!
