Has anyone tried a Lee 452-200-RF in a 1911 45 acp?
I like the look of that flat meplat, but I have 2 concerns.
1: the crimp groove. I'm sure it's intended for 45 colt roll crimp. Would this work for taper crimp with the 45acp? I'm sure I could adjust the COL to allow headspacing on the boolit.
2: feeding. on Midway, about half of the customer reviews say it's great, about half say it doesn't work with their (insert 1911 clone here).
I'm shooting a colt 1991 (mil-spec 1911) that's been tightened up/ accurized. Prior to starting casting, i've used commercial cast 200 swc, and it has fed 1000+ of those without a single jam.
I'm using the Lee 358-158-RF in a 357 revolver and really like it. I'm hoping the 452-200-RF will do as well for the 45.
