My son recently purchased a 1912 Steve Hahn, appears in good shape.

In taking it out, using factory loads with Starline brass he got through about 5 rounds before having a number of fail to ejects. He had to drive a number of cases out with a dowel.

Looking at it tonight, fired cases are really tight in the barrel, having some light scratch marks on the outside. New unfired rounds are pretty lose - more wiggle than a Glock barrel.

I'm wondering if the chamber is too big or the loads were too hot. The extractor seems to hold the cases well, does not appear to be the problem.

Any suggestions? Cool old gun, want to see it run well. Also, I have read both 38 Super or 9mm Luger dies for reloads. Obviously one of these is wrong - anyone know what's right?

I loaded some for a friends 1912 a few years back. I used .38 super dies, a .223 shell holder and 9mm luger data. Even with the larger case the round was never loaded very hot. Right now Midway has brass on sale for $20 per 100. The 9mm luger versions are retrofits done by the Nazis.
