I attempted my first .45 reloads today on my Dillon Square Deal. Had to change the die that pressed the bullet into the casing. It took 1/2 an hour to adjust the correct amount of power - Bullseye! Then it took another 1/2 hour to adjust for the OAL. After that I realized I wasn't pressing hard enough to insert the primers. Once I got all set I was able to load 8 bullets correctly. Then I decided to go the range and be sure they were working before I wasted time and product. It's a learning curve and I enjoyed it. Keep your fingers crossed!

It is a great feeling to be your own ammo factory! I will still leave a high primer every now and again on my Lee turret press, mostly when I am getting tired, and toss 'em in the reject bin for pulling the rounds apart later once I have a bunch.

Let us know how they fly!
