So I wanted to see why everyone thinks they "need" a LFCD. I bought one in 45acp & made a small test. All loads were shot off the bench @ 15yds, but it was a bit windy (12-15mph/9-3:00). The gun is a lightly tuned 1911, match quality Barsto bbl. All loads were using WST in matching cases. The dies were Dillon & the only diff was crimp. I will do another accuracy test trying a softer lead bullet. The lead bullets used were cast from WW alloy, about 13BHN. The results: Initial obs is the LFCD isn't plated bullet friendly. It seems to treat the hard lead bullets about the same as taper crimped. The jacketed shot very poorly, but could have been the wind. Another test for another day & we'll see if it holds up. BTW, all loads functioned flawlessly.
