Thread: Reloading for 45ACP with small primer brass

  1. #11
    I have found no difference in reloading or performance or chrono numbers between LP and SP. Just make sure you keep them separate for ease of proper primer insertion...

    I didn't like the idea of small pistol primers either, but that changed when I remembered all those 400 Corbon loads, form and trim....fun low pressure caliber to shoot light and fast.

    I use the same amount of Australian Clays - as with large primer brass - use Tula small rifle magnum primers with a 200gr LSWC bullet and they chrono almost identical to the same load in LP brass. For me it makes it more simple as I can use the same primer in 9mm, .45ACP and .223/5.56.

    i sort them and then load in small primer batches and large primer batches. No difference other than primer feed.

    I can't tell any difference in the two. I have heard that for equal performance you need to use magnum primers with the SPP primers, so I tried it with 6.0/Unique and a 200 grain SWC bullet. Couldn't tell much difference there, either, but I did notice ever so slight flatteneing of the primers with the magnums.

    I bought these cases before the election, just in case components became scarce again, and keep them separate from my LPP brass.

    I use 4.5gr of TiteGroup with 250gr ball ammo bullet. No difference in the small pistol primer. I'd never buy the factory ammo but I have a bag of SPP brass I've picked up off the floor at the range. I just separate them from the LPP brass.
