I'm like RetiredRod. Two 550s, one small primer and one large primer. Changing over to a different primer size is the most time consuming part of a changeover.

As a general observation from years with my BHP's, cz75, M92, and 1911s, I'd say that 124 gr is more accurate than 115. And hotter ammo is more accurate than slower ammo in my guns. Never found a 147...
