    As mentioned by everyone else Lee 158 RNFP is great to start with.

    I have never removed the rings but I have used diamond paste to hone those out to a larger size, same with lee sizing dies. Dowel in a drill with some cotton or felt and diamond paste. I think i had to do that to most of my dies I think you kind of...

    Thats great I have many different versions of this chart but this is the first one that has Vectan powders which I have been using more and more lately so that helps, thanx.

    There shouldnt be any lead shaving they should basically be swaged by burning gases down to whatever size your barrel is. Lead is soft enough so size is not the problem. Most leading issues are caused by bullets that are too small not too big. If...

    If your looking for defense/woods load then I wouldnt use that bullet neither. I'm not a hunter but from my understanding for a bear load xtp bullets are not ideal neither because of lack of penetration on larger game such as bears. I would much...

    Thats strange because most 45s are shot with fast powders and in your case with your short 4.25 barrel and 185gr bullets sounds like fast powder is the only way to go. Now if you had 5 or 6" barrel and shot 230gr then you might be able to get #5 to...

    Thats not exactly the best combo as your finding out. 45acp does best with fast burning powders and #2 would be much better in this application. Plus your shooting light bullets so that doesnt help neither. I dont know if I would push this much more...

    Just like Jeff I have Taurus PT111 G2 which looks like the previous version of your gun and this guns chamber wasnt cut for lead if you ask me. The reason your having to seat those so short is because it has short tight throat and no leade cut...

    Sounds like you have 356-125-2R which is my favorite for 9mm. With my alloy and PC it comes out around 129-130gr and it shoots great. The only problem you might have is with guns that have short throat and no leade cut before rifling starts. In that...

    I have been using Vectan more and more lately. Good powder for the price and it burns clean and you get 1.1lb instead of 1lb. So far I used Vectan A0 in medium power 357,10mm and I think 40S&W. I used GM3 (shotgun powder) in 38S and 9mm seems to be...
