You will be able to tell the difference between the 185's & 200's. It seems to me there's enough load data available to find a safe, mild load with Red Dot and 185gr bullets.

The above posts were deleted because they were comments about Dillon reloading presses and dies and did not pertain to the Want To Buy issue.

The only nit I have to pick is calling these people "Americans". They have no love for this country and in no way are true Americans.

Did your Defender happen to be in .40S&W? Several years ago a shooting buddy and I each bought a Defender- I got it in 45acp, him in .40. Mine was a jewel to own and shoot. His had constant...

In my opinion it's best to get OAL from the bullet mfg/caster and powder charge data from the powder mfg. Since Hodgdon is a powder mfg, how would you know which SWC bullet their listed OAL...

It appears the OP is crimping the round, although he doesn't say to what degree. I agree that insufficient crimp can cause plunk test failure and feeding problems.

Why not load 9 rounds of the 185's with 4.0gr Bullseye and shoot them? They may function with the 18.5 recoil spring. If they do, adjust down 0.2 gr and try again. If they don't adjust up 0.2gr...

Try a different technique: pushing the slide back instead of pulling. Better leverage and easier to get a good, firm grip.
