I just finished loading some new 28 gauge Cheddite hulls with my MEC. Try running the new hulls under your pre-crimp station a couple times before you finish the crimp.

Also, letting the hull sit there with the pre-crimp in place seems to really help. Just hold the handle down for 10 seconds or so. And I do that 2 times or so until it looks like it took and will crimp ok. You can visually see if the pre-crimp is holding. Then final crimp it before the folds come back out.
