I load them until they crack. Necked cases I measure with dial calipers, every time I load them. Not so much with straight wall pistol/ revolvers not so much until after 4 or 5 loadings. The .45 acp are the none that stretch.That’s awesome!! I know this is an older post, but came across it. Is it pretty easy loading 450? How many times fired do you get out of a casing?
I love the earplug mod to the primer catching system. I might have to do the same on my RC
Yes, they’re straight walled so pretty simple. One has to trim them. 37 to 40 grams of powder and I use Lil Gun. My rifle likes them on the hotter side. Fun to shoot. I only have the five round mags tho. I haven’t had a split brass yet with 4 times but I don’t shoot it everyday as they’re not cheap to shoot.That’s awesome!!

Ammo cans, I’m not talking the little bitty ones....Loaded 20 .308 Win. Cases yesterday for a ladder test with 125 gr Speer TNT and Alliant Reloder 10x. Then loaded up 100 mild 5.56 cases with Hornady 62 gr BTHP and 24.8 gr of Ramshot TAC.
Then got a Facebook notice that my gun club was closing our range due to covid-19 shelter in place orders from the country's worst (or next to worst if you live in Oregon ) governor. While I understand the importance of not spreading the virus, I was really looking forward to some range time tomorrow. I am running out of boxes and room for loaded ammo!
