Default Speer RHT ammo

Since we have opened a semi-indoor range we are using non-toxic frangible ammo for much training/qualification. A couple of issues came up that may be of assistance to you handloaders.

The Speer .45 ACP RHT ammo uses a small pistol primer. You may want to segregate it to avoid loading problems. I just set it aside and save it for when (and if) I have more small pistol primers than large.

The Speer .223 RHT seems to resize very easily. Pressures must be lower than normal. The cases average about 1 grain lighter than Winchester commercial cases. Not much but should be taken into consideration during load development as the brass is "probably" thinner.

In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
