sorting large, and small primer 45acp??

Post by s1120 on 8/5/2015, 10:35 am

Just getting started working up loads for 45acp, and have a stupid question for you guys. At this point I have a mixmatch of cases im working with. Do you guys have any tricks for sorting small, and large primer brass? Old eyes sometimes have a problem seeing the difference...

Well, I prime on a single stage, so if it don't fit, I quit.
Well, toss it anyway...

This is why I no longer pick up range brass.

I also stopped picking up other people's brass because of this. I only load 45 and had no idea that sp 45 even existed. I was cranking along and hit an sp case. Ended up having to replace the lnl hub because I pushed it too hard. I stick to my older starline for practice now.

LOL  that's pretty much all I use. Most is older then I am. Im adding to the old stuff with some newer also. I don't mind SPP, just want to set aside for other loads. I got the tip to use a drillbit shank that fits into a LPP shell, and use it as a go/no go gauge.
