vaquero,

My opinion but they're full of it. I think they say things like to make it sound like they have a special 'in' that us peons don't have.

I use Universal Clays. Works great.

I must agree. The writers have to maintain their relevance. God forbid they print some erroneous information since everything that they tell us is the Gospel.

As I bid my last hopper full of Universal farewell, I am switching to PowerPistol. I will start with about 6.5 - 6.7 grains under a 200 grn Xtreme Flat Point.

Range reports to come. FWIW, the burn rate for Universal and Power Pistol are # 42 and # 43 respectively on the burn rate chart.

OK, inventory shows I have about 1500 185 grn xtreme bullets, so I loaded these instead. I used 7.3 grns of power pistol under the 185 xtreme flatpoint. Very accurate and as usual, a soft shooting round. That PP does make a flash though doesn't it?

That's one of many things I like about Universal Clays. It's flash-suppressed.

Of course, try finding any . . .

Dillon 45 acp dies work fine on my 550. Dillon now sells them as 45 acp/45 gap dies.

Not sure the difference, but I have the Lee 3 die .45 set, adjusted down to GAP. I was getting some FTGIB, so I had to make sure i flared them first, then do a little finagling with the crimp and the rounds started coming out fine.

One thing I noticed setting up a rifle die was that I had gotten an extra lock ring I didn't need on the re-sizer and couldn't screw it down all the way.

I've been using Power Pistol and Longshot with 230 grain RN. I'm at camp without my Lyman Manual, but I think it gives the formula for PP. Check for Longshot, but I think I calculated from the ACP table starting with 90% of the minimum.

I use 45 ACP dies for reloading my GAPs. No modifications.

Lee makes a die set specifically for 45 GAP. I use them on a Pro 1000 and they work great. I have a lot of PowerPistol recipes if someone wants me to publish them.

Yes. Lee is pretty good at making/labeling die sets for a single caliber when in fact the dies properly made will fit more than just one caliber.

Hornady does the opposite.
