It isn't the actual force as much as it is the repetitive nature of how it is applied. Carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, and other similar type injuries are caused by repetitive motion. Genetically, the...

That's some impressive performance for the .45 ACP. Have you had any problems with stripping on those hard cast bullets in the shallow .45 ACP rifling? I like the WFN profile, but that's why I used...

The Feds determine what the laws are re: shipping, not the states. Those laws have changed very little in the last decade.

The states, like California, prohibit/regulate the ammo itself, but not...

Well, not really. The .44 Colt was Colt's answer to the S&W .44 American. It is only .050" shorter than the .44 Special. Much the same situation as with the .45 Colt, .45 Schofield, .45 Short...

Just because a progressive is faster than a turret and may be more than you need is not a valid reason. Easy of operation is also a significant factor. I started on a single stage, and was loading...

I've tried just about everything out there at some point, either as a demo at a shop, or on a friend's bench.


I won't own anything from Lee. Pure junk in my opinion.

I'd say Nitro45 pretty much nailed it. If you're going to play at reloading, or do demos on how to reload, the Lee stuff has some limited use. But, if you are going to seriously pursue reloading,...

That's it in a nutshell. We could eliminate the problem in a couple of days, nationwide. But, the people in charge don't have the backbone to do so because it would be a bloody, brutal, nasty...

Good point. Seems like a lot of people don't know that. There's even a lot of people who expect the inexpensive mil-spec GI 1911 pistols to work with any ammo. A true mil-spec is only required to...

Should be noted here that the bullet in the Critical Defense round is NOT the same as the one used in Critical Duty loads. A lot of people get them confused.

Actually, it is more likely that the ramp area needs polishing, OR the recoil spring needs a boost, maybe both.

If you're dead set against the Critical Duty, try to find some Golden Saber. That has a more traditional ogive shape and has never failed to feed.
