After a 15 year vacation from reloading, the Obama admin renewed my interest....now I'm addicted again.

so far my favorite 45 ACP load is:

Fed Brass
Fed Large Pistol primers
Green Dot : 4.5 gr
200 gr LSWC from Precison Delta seat bullet 1.260 Oal

And yours are? Care to share them

Yup, Obama will cause more activity in gun interests than maybe even Bill Clinton did!

One of my pet .45ACP loads: 185 gr. JHP, I also like Federal primers, SR 4756 powder, 8.7 gr. I usually seat about 0.010" less than Max. OAL recommended. IN 1911 Gov't. model, usually the shorter the OAL, the less feed reliability.

I've been loading 230 gr FMJ RN over Winchester casings and primers, with 5.1 gr of W231, to an OAL of around 1.22".

I love reloading. Having an issue with my Dillon SDB last time I was trying to reload, though, it kinda has a "hitch" or catch about half way through the cycle, seems to do okay but sumpin' ain't right. Different story for a different thread.

Unfortunately I know nothing about a Dillion press except I do like their ads in the gun mags....

I have a Lee Turret that has the index removed making it a single stage.

I had a "squibb load" one time that locked up a revolver between the cylinder and the forcing cone.........got lucky.....ever since that time my progressive has been "neutered"...Its slower...but safer for me...I also visually inspect each powder charge in an RCBS tray before seating a bullet....

What's time to a Hog!

Been wanting to try some W231 on 45 ACP...its on my "to do list"

I tend to try to seat my bullets pretty close to max oal on my LSWC's...they tend to feed better for me...the shorter i get the more problems I have.

Interesting that you have that experience. When I loaded mine to the longer length, I seemed to get more issues. Around 1.22", I'm good to go. Dunno what that means, but that's the experience I've had so far.

Slabsides posted the best load ever. I happen to know a 6 time distinguished badge winner in Bullseye that uses that load.
