    When using a case gauge some, of my brass does not fit the gauge at the rim (0.480 dimension). Seems like burrs are occurring. A small percentage require filing for the brass to fully seat in the gauge. Does this need to be filed prior to use and will this cause a malfunction in a semi-auto?

    My .45 ACP reloads (Zero bullets, 230 Gr RN) have not been fully chambering and are difficult to extract in my M&P. I went through several iterations of chasing the usual suspects: - My OAL was in spec and matched Freedom Munitions 230 gr RN that feed flawlessly. - adjusted and re-adjusted...

    Ruger Redhawk .45 Colt & .45 ACP June 15, 2015 By: Ed Head The idea of pushing a big, heavy bullet out of a handgun at high velocity has been around for a long time. Elmer Keith, the father of big bore magnum handguns, started his writing career in the 1920s by describing how his experiments...

    I have had problems with my 45 acp fitting in the Dillon case gauge. I tried adjusting everything about 60 percent would fit. It was really bugging me. The glock would fire all of them my 1911 would not. So I bought redding titanium dies and now they almost all fit the case gauge. Finally...

    I've been looking at some .45 HD ammo and I'm having a debate with myself. I've been specifically looking at Hornady ammo. When choosing HD ammo do I go with a higher grain bullet with slower speeds or a smaller grain bullet with higher speeds. Critical Defense - 185 grain at 936 fps at 50...

    Surprised I'm thinking of going down this road, but here goes. Any thoughts/reviews on these guns? Preferably by people who have handled and fired both. I know the M&P is a smaller mag cap but I do like my full size M&P. I also seem to recall one or two good reviews on the Glock on LIF. I have...

    Hi all, i'm new to reloading. I have been reloading 9mm for about 5 months with no issues. I have a more experienced person teaching me, although he himself has only been reloading for a year and a half. We recently set up my .380 dies, and followed the instructions to the letter. I am getting...
