My experience is with XH, and "Dupont" crimps. I use an Iwiss IWS2820M. 
Takes some practice (i.e. not to press too hard), but after that you can 

good crimps with it. Fairly simple construction. (YT-er Bigclive has it 
in a video: *https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXLmuDbcLBM*)

It is tapered so that it doesn't happen, unless you do not align the 
contact properly.
