1)Im new to reloading and have question about bullet weight to case pressure. I am currently reloading .45 's and I have seen a common pattern of the higher weight bullets with lower powder ranges compared to the same bullet design but lighter weight with just a tad bit more for its powder range. Is this because it takes more energy to move the heavier bullet? 2) Brass, I have read the thread on good and bad brass. Now if you have several makes of brass of all three categories. How does this affect the accuracy of the load or what difference would I see? 3) Maximum published load, if im not seeing over pressure issues in a load that was at the maximum charge. Can I consider that a safe load to shoot consistently? 4) Last and final question. When testing a load for accuracy do I test at a range that I am most accurate at and hope it to be accurate at a futher range? I am currently (sad to say) most consistent at a measly 20 feet. I cant shoot for s%^& at 25 yards. What are your thoughts other then the obvious (more practice)? Thanks Chris Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
