    tried reloading the annoying .45 ACP brass that has small pistol primers? Any success in .45?

    I reload I exclusively. If you search by my name you'll find some threads regarding the topic. I can't remember exactly, but I believe my data showed that given the same load data, small primer will result in about 50fps less velocity. Hardly noticeable when your shooting.

    I have. No problems whatsoever. Just make sure to keep the brass separated before the priming operation.

    I am getting a decent amount thrown in a bag on the bench. When it get's full I'll send it down to you. I hate em, pick up a dozen or so every IDPA match trying to get most of my brass back. You should come, lots of it on the ground.:whistling:
