Were the latch plate mortises precut into the jamb or did you do it?
With a metal door the weatherstripping grips the door pretty easily if the jamb legs are plumb and parallel to one another.
When you close the door, does the door touch the stops at the same time or does one part of the door touch before the rest of the door?
Either the latch plate is not properly placed or the jamb legs are askew.
