I just bought a Springfield Loaded pistol in a 45 acp the gun you see in my avatar is a loaded springfield in a 9mm nothing but slide and frame or SA anymore, but I have not had a 45 in a couple years been shooting 40SW and 9mm I did not realize how much I missed it. So I got to casting I have a Hensley and Gibbs mold I think they are no longer around, but what a pleasure it was casting with that mold, right from the start they came out great at 200 gr swc, and just dead balls accurate behind 4.7 WST I use it on all cast bullets I found less smoke with it, I make my own lube. Has anyone heard of Hensley &Gibb? I use a lyman #2 mix weight was perfect, the gun ran flawless at a OAL of 1.260 the gun was from the range where I get all the brass I sell here it was a rental, I have been waiting until I felt it was broke in, I hate messing with a tight brand new gun, the one you see here was new out of box I spent 3 hours with valve lapping compound working in the slide to frame once I did that it ran great. I will soon get a EGW Sear and Doug Koenig hammer and put a 2 1/2 pound trigger pull on it, Those factory 5 pound triggers are nuts, I am not crazy about the night sights, I will probably put bomar rear and Dawson front fibre on it, but that is all I will do so I can shoot in the Single Stack Classic in the Spring at PASA. It shoots good at 15 yards one shot on top of the other soon as I do trigger job we will test at 25 yards if it does not shoot a 2 inch group or less then I will put a Shueman barrel in it.
