    Has anyone reloaded any of the Federal 45 ACP which they have put a small pistol primer pocket in instead of large. If you have what were the results?

    Reloaded a couple hundred of them about a month ago with no problems using my standard load data.

    Pulled the trigger and they all went bang.

    I have tried some using some of my favorite loads and have found virtually no change in velocity or accuracy.

    Thanks Jim,

    I pick up brass at the range and have accumulated several hundred small primer casings. I've just set them aside. Just thought I would ask before reloading.
