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

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.
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.
