May not crush perfectly flat, and cause bore concentricity issues.

Replace with a shim kit and you will be good to go.

I swear I did a search. I have no clue how I missed that. I only got like 3 hits too.

you didn't use google, you used the built-in search?

P.S. It's not just crush washers that may cause cocentricity issues. Many use washers successfully but some claim any washer has the potential to make a can uneven.
