I can't seem to find out what primer and or size fits that brass?? Large or small pistol primer. I've looked on the Hodgdon & Alliants web sites, it gives a lot of information, but how do I know what primer fits my brass?

    Otintx ,
    What current reloading manual would you suggest?

    Thanks for all your guys information.
    Which manual have you chosen? Lyman's Pistol and Revolver Handbook is good place to start.

    Most .45 is large primer, there are small primer cases if you wish to try that option.


    Each manual is going to be a bit different in content, but the loading values should be in the same realm.

    Every powder has it's own parameters, components are pretty much consistent, weight, size, style, etc.

    Here are some of the manuals :

    Sierra
    Hornady
    Hodgdon
    Lyman
    Barnes

    You don't need 2.
    The one that is best is the one that explains things in a manner that you grasp the best.
    Any of the ones posted to you in this thread should be fine but you won't know which is best til you read them.

    I tried to look at reloading manuals today but they were all sealed. So obviously I couldn't see the one that explains things in a manner that I can grasp the best. I did buy 4 lbs of Titegroup and more of the Winchester 231 powder. They were out of Berry's 230 grain bullets and Federal 150 primers. I guess I'll have to buy on the internet?? I have the RCBS rock crusher reloading set. Do I need to clean my brass with a tumbler? And do I need to trim my cases? I think I have everything else?

    I have never trimmed .45 cases, for punching holes in paper it is not necessary, if your plan is to shoot in competition it could be an advantage.

    The round head-spaces on the rim so the length is only important if there is potential for a mis-feed or a jam.


    Clean brass feeds better and looks better !

    Make sure primer pocket is clean before seating a new primer.

    I would go to your local library and look at reloading manuals for one you like.
    Otintx gave you what he uses, for me it's Lyman's Pistol and Revolver Handbook because I don't reload rifle rounds.

    I always clean the brass and either a tumbler or ultrasonic cleaner will work.
    I believe most use a tumbler because there is less time waiting fore brass to dry and I feel the brass looks better coming out of a tumbler. Makes it easier for me to see cracks and other deformities on the brass.

    Ok, What kind/model of tumbler would I look for? Best for the price? Also what kind of media? And maybe who or where to buy?

    Can't go wrong with 4.4 grains of titegroup, fed SP and 1.265" COL.
