It just means you didn't get the seater stem exactly right when readjusting. No big deal. Probably need to turn it down a schosh more. When we readjust the seater stem after adjusting the crimp (With the round in the die) we often don't screw it back down tight enough on the bullet.
If that's the biggest problem you run into you are doing just fine.
But as other's have said, .008" is meaningless with rimmed handgun cartridges. If the crimp is in the canelure and sufficient for the load being used, and the bullet seated so as to not interfere with cylinder rotation, all is well and good, other wise make die adjustments, and, or trim brass as necessary to rectify the problem.
i wouldn't worry about it.
