    Finally got me a Springfield 45 acp 1911. What are some of the bullet molds you all use. Been looking at all the lee molds and can’t decide which one to get. I like my tc lee mold in 9 mm and 40 so the 45 should be good. What do u all think of the tl lee bullet mold?I have the regular lube grove bullet not the tumble lube version. Also there copy of the H&G #68 should be good.  .       What’s a good one to start with? Thanks

    This is there standard Springfield 1911 45 acp mill spec model. 5 in barrel full size with parkerized finish. Shot it with fmj’s and shoots really good at 10 and 15 yards.  Got a free gave to me 45 acp lee die. Only problem it is a .003 under die. .003 smaller than normal or regular die. So I don’t think a fmj will be a problem but loading lead probably will be. What was the .003 under made for tight match chambers? I think I will order the regular die from lee and a mold. If I can decide which mold to get

    Sorry, been busy with hunting season and stuff.  Haven’t got a deer yet, but I’m up to 6 pigs lol.

    For my 45 acp stuff, I use a 235rf that was a group buy awhile ago.  I size .451 for my long slide hardballer and .452 for my Star PD.

    Just got my 45 die in so I loaded around 150 up last night of 230 gr rn fmj . I loaded up just two of my lead bullet up and they are to big to chamber. They go in almost all the way then stop short. I kind of thought they would do this. I got some sizers and other stuff coming so will size the lead bullets and will be good to go. Will let you know how they shoot.
