    How many times can a .45 caliber shell be reloaded safely? I'm using a Glock Model 21 pistol with a Wilson Match barrel.

    i have reloaded my .45 shells more than 10 times, i relode them till they crack:) with a match bbl and moderate loadings, the shells will be lost before they crack up.

    where do u bring ur shells for reloading? they usually check if ur shells are still good before they reload. if the shells are out of shape or has a crack they normally dont reload it anymore. i have mine reloaded at true weight... they even clean the shells before reloading.

    OK. Me narinig kasi ako na nasabugan na raw 3 beses ng reload. Basag sa likuran ang casing.

    I shoot a LOT of my .45 reloads through a Glock 30, and my policy is to use the brass until it cracks. I do not load very hot though.
