Re: CZ-50 Chronograph reload results

Yep, it was the beginning of "Lawyer Loads", the ignorant lawyers decided the Reloader was not competent enough to use published load data, a deliberately lowered the powder amount.

A slight taper crimp is OK. Never roll crimp the .45 ACP. It head spaces on the case mouth.

Re: "Mexican Match" .45 ACP?

Re: 7mm Mauser ammo info request
