    Reloading

    I am slowly educating myself towards reloading. I found bullets today (.45ACP/Nossler brand);

    These were marked ""2nds or Seconds"".

    What does this mean?? There was no explanation???

    Thanks


    Sorry if I post in the wrong area. Please move it if I did. In a hurry this afternoon.

    If they're plated bullets then most likely there are blemishes in the finish or weight varies more than their specs allow.

    Found this in a search.

    Thanks Gaz. I did not know if it was blemishes or if the weight is off, wouldn't weight affect accuracy?

    I believe it is only a cosmetic blemish, have never used any, but do have some new sabots that have been around for awhile and would qualify for that description, 'specially the ones that got tarnished after having a couple of foot of water in my garage during Hurricane Ike.

    They were not in the water but the salt/corrosion that comes from our fine lake (lol) rots everything it touches and does not touch.

    In a word, yes but you could always weigh each one. Something I do when I'm making rounds for bulls eye shooting but it just shows much more practice I need.
    At 20 yds from a rest a 1 to 2 grain variance was not noticeable to me using 10 shots of bullets matched to a 1/10 grain in powder charge and bullet weight. But it's an inside range, outside and longer distance it may show. Distance to target and charge has a bigger impact from what I've seen so far.

    Also I'm shooting with stock Glocks. My personal project to see how accurate I can be with stock parts.
    I would use them if for nothing else than for setting up the press and some practice loads.

    I remember back when I graduated high school, I went down to the coast and lived in my parents beach house for the summer, until the fall that year, then went to the service.
    This was in Brazoria County, Surfside Beach in Freeport. My dad use to work for Dow Chemical. So, yeah, my car rusted away. I went to Europe and the car sat at my parents rusting after having it on the beach there. I didn't think it would do much harm just for the summer, nope. That salt is almost like acid LOL.

    Surfside is just over the west bridge from me, and yes it is one in the same body of water. I used to work on the ferry boats here, (a/c mechanic), and one year the state gave us a new boat that immediately developed a/c issues. The unit case was made of stainless steel and the boat had only been in the water a week and it had pools of rust ontop of the case already !

    FWIW, I have reloaded and shot blemished sabots before and there was nothing wrong with them, and I agree with Gaz that a small difference in weight is not going to affect the weekend paper shooter.
