I have searched extensively and still a little confused so sorry for the newb questions.
I recently aquired a Dillon 550B press to start reloading 45 ACP for my Glock 21SF and 30SF duty weapons. I am looking for a load to replicate/just a little softer than my duty Speer Gold Dot 230 gr hollowpoint which comes out 890 fps at the muzzle.
My questions are:
1. Which brand dies do you recommend for loading in a Glock since dies did not come with the press? Dillon?
Dillon Carbide would be my recommendation
2. I have on order several cases of Zero 230 gr FMJ plated bullets. Can you guys recommend a powder that will meter well in the Dillon and OVERFLOW the case if there is a double charge loading the Zeros to the above specs? I am looking to buy one powder for the above application that accomplishes both and just order in bulk...saving time and money. Can you recommend a starting load for the powder you recommend? I do have a reloading manual but looking for further info...
Unique would be a good start. It will certainly overflow on a double charge
3. I found several cases of Remington large pistol primers. Any problems forseen with using these on the Dillon and a new reloader running it?
Everyone has preferences on primers and how hard they are. Myself I use CCI but alot don't like them saying they are hard. I haven't had any problems. I think the Remingtons will work fine for what your wanting
Thanks in advance and sorry for the newb stuff
Hope it helps
