    Every one I find I go all mobster on it and smash it with my 28 oz framing hammer. I hate them damn things.

    Dang, I looked to late. A guy on another forum had 3000 of them but just sold them all a couple days ago.

    We all need to start saving them and send them to USMCSpeedy when we get a bunch. At least someone will benefit from what the rest of us considers trash!!

    Because 99% of all 45acp ever made is with LP's; it's a really PITA when you're rolling along and have one get slipped in on you. It would be the equivalent of running all your lug nuts down on all four tires and then running into one single lug nut that happened to be a metric thread.

    If you are using a progressive and you are tooling along at 50 MPH. It is kinda like you hit a brick wall when that one piece of brass, that you missed when you were sorting, is put in the resizing die! What a pain in the buttocks!!

    Speedy, the brass has been mailed!

    I load both LP and SP brass. All I do is keep them separate, and use a red marker on the case bottoms before I go to the range, so I can easily separate them later. No problems.

    By the way, I haven't noticed any significant difference in velocity in the samples I shot over my chrony.

    And to USMCspeedy: I do see the SP advertised from time to time on various forums. Just post that you would trade for LP and you'll have all the SP brass you can possibly use.

    Those dang things throw enough of a wrench into my game to cause me to get mideivil on them with any close heavy object, and I only hand prime my cases. I can't imagine how fustrating it is for you wealthy guys with a progressive press.
