By all means! Reloading/handloading is a great way to broaden your understanding of firearms/ammunition. I believe standard .45 ACP dies will work fine for the GAP.

I am planning on doing the same. Just bought the book "the abc's of reloading" so I can get some background on the subject. Also researching the equipment. I plan reloading in the next couple months.

This is true my 45 acp dies also say gap. They are the rcbs three die carbide set.

I say go for it! I recently did, it's a lot of fun, and gives you a sense of accomplishment every time you create a new box of shells. One big chunk of equipment money to get started, then your ammunition costs can drop dramatically.

yes by all means i would say to start reloading. it is a wonderful addition to the shooting sport and can be very relaxing. it is also something you can do when the weather isn't cooperative for shooting outside.

reloading can be very safe as long as you pay attention to all the safety guidelines and pay attention to what you are doing. it can have dangerous and dealy results if you don't.

buy the book, "The ABC's of Reloading". very good book for beginning reloaders, as it has much information on how components go together and make loaded ammo, lots of safety procedures, has information on how to select what equipment you need to start reloading and where to set it up at. you can buy the book usually at Amazon.com for less than $15. really good book and i highly recommend it. read it several times before you ever buy the first peice of equipment. read it and understand it, as it will save you lots of headaches in the beginning.
