    I picked up an 18 pack today from Sam's for $21.98. It always drives me nuts because my two trail cams take 20 batteries. I'll have to pick up a 4 pack.

    Standard 45 ACP dies with a 45 Colt shell holder should be the correct dies. The "45 Special" is for use in SAs with a 45 ACP cylinder for use in SASS (CAS) matches. SASS rules require a rimed cartridge. Also, with light loads and even 45 ACP...
