    When I started reloading 45acp, I ran into minor problems, but after I bought a gage from LE Wilson and adjusted my dies to fit the gage, all my problems went away. If it fits in the gage, it will fit in the chamber.

    It wasn’t that the cartridges weren’t fitting the chamber, it was the taper crimp die the cartridge was sticking in and removing a lot of brass from the case mouth when coming out of the die.
    With this new die there is no sticking or popping lose from the die, no brass shavings on the shell plate and a nice cleanly defined outside case mouth edge to headspace on, just like my 45 and 38 taper crimp dies behave.
    It is real nice when tools work as they are supposed to.
