Decided not to pay current prices for factory 9mm ammo; therefore I am going to reload it on 2 single stage presses. I have the Redding Premium dies set; but also have a 38 special taper crimp die. I am leaning on trying to use that 38 special taper crimp die instead of the seat/crimp die. Any ideas about this theory? Also I have 3 full size 1911's and decided that I better use a powder charge to yield a power factor sufficient to ensure good cycling with these pistols. That translates to: 4.2 - 4.3 grs of Hodgdon Titegroup. Sound reasonable?
