    what's a supported chamber?

    i also throw shells away only when they're cracked. they usually separate and do not load cracked shells at trueweight.

    Yes its not that scarry, whats scares me is if i pop a reload without gauging it one by one .

    Reputable reloaders like T weight,Stronghand et al checks the shells for cracks and deformities, but i would suggest(jerik777) to check the shells yourself ..better safe that sorry.

    As Vega said, its not really scary. In fact you wont even notice it if you happen to fire one. The worst I've experienced so far is a jam (failure to eject the cracked shell). W/o the shell resisting the pressure, it wont develop pressure high enough to be dangerous. In its place, the chamber walls act as the shell but at a bigger diameter than the shell hence the pressure is much lower than its supposed to be.

  8. Regular reloads would be around 10-12 times. Less pag factor reloads.

    There is no factory reload, only factory load.
    Regular reload is using the specs provided by the powder manufacturer. If you have a ported pistol, your slide will not function properly using regular loads because you lose pressure sa dami ng butas ng barrel. You need to load more than specs so that it will function reliably.

    vega means factory load and not factor reload. :) The factory load means it came from the factory.
