    Im gonna move this post to ammo and reloading.

    But to answer your question. If you have a good supply of the BRASS cases witht eh small primer pocket just use SP primers and any listed data.

    I have enough LP brass in .45ACP to not bother with those pesky small pocket boogers but thats just me. It is good brass and i have reloaded it and made reliable ammo with it.. Its just a PITA to keep separate..

    I just discovered a bunch of these small primer hole brass mixed in with my regular stuff. How frustrating! I would like to dot the guy's eye who made the decision to produce .45 brass this small hole.

    It does piss me off. I like to buy once fired brass and here recently its been about 100-150 per 1000 mixed in there. i hate sorting them

    I believe that much of the non toxic .45 ammo sold is the small primer. My son brought me a bucket of small primer .45s from a LEO qualifying shoot. I reloaded it with small primers and my normal load and it worked great. The down side is sorting it from the large primer ammo.
