alrite im not nearly done asking questions here from the knowledge and folks that have covered a bunch of this ground before me.
i have 5 box's of 45 basic brass manufactured for rcbs by a company in sweden...exclusivly made for rcbs is what is on the box's. my question is this...this 45 basic brass does not meassure out to the full length of a 45-120 case oal trim length. yet the paper inside lists this brass to be able to make the 45-120 sharps straight cases from them. they meassure out at 3.163 inch.
i have 20 or so of the bell 45 basic cases that have already been made into the 45-120 and they meassure out to 3.250 inch as they should.
so are these rcbs cases the wrong cases i need for making my 45-120 loads or is this approx 1/8 shorted case not gonna make a difference on these shells.
im having a hoot loading and shooting these shells in this browning "lite" hiwall and think i have the method for not maiming myself everytime i squeez the trigger so i want more loading experiments for this monster.
also ive loaded some smokeless in the bell cases and used cream of wheat for filler so if this is just an absolute no no then maybe somebody better lead me out of a bad habit before i get in trouble. i used to use cornmeal and cream of wheat for pistol reloading back in the dark ages but i have never used any kind of filler in rifle cases so am i going in the rite direction before i shoot these "cow" filled cases?
thanks for the info in advance
