Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Small primers in .45 ACP

I was reloading my hodge-podge bucket of brass and came across a couple pieces that take small pistol primers I didn't know about.

One was stamped Federal .45 ACP and the other was brass Blazer .45 ACP.

I knew that Winchester was using small primers in some of their brass, but didn't know about Federal and CCI were doing it, too.

Oh yupper I found a few in some used brass I got also. Just what I need more confusion to try to put a large primer in a small primer hole.

It almost came to that, since I'm using a progressive press.

Most red box Federal ammo from Walmart has small primers. The red box stuff is sold exclusively to Walmart.
