The Russian Ammo, also expensive has berdan primers which requires an expensive tool for removal and the primers are expensive when they can be found.

I Use CCI small pistol primers, Hornady XTP JHP .32 cal. bullets, resized to .309 , 3.5 grains of Trail Boss Powder and they are accurate and hard hitting rascals !
I had to look that up, since I had no idea what that pistol was. Very interesting, and an really interesting reloading problem.

We had my folks over for Easter lunch today, and after we ate I took my dad through all the reloading equipment, processes, and components, and we loaded 10 more of the .45 that started this thread.

A little later I loaded up 40 more using the Speer 200 grain LSWC bullets that came recently. I can't wait to get out and try them. Started at the low end of the Speer powder range for Unique, which is what I have on hand.

I forgot to mention, that the cost of the .45 Auto rounds with the LSWC bullets and brass I already had was $0.16 per round or $8.08/50. That's cheaper than 9mm at WalMart
