All you need is a 44 magnum revolver so you can use those magnum primers.  :D

Guess that’s the only option. Think my wife will buy it?  :rofl:

I’m reloading some blazer brass from a case I bought, I also have some brand new Remington cases. I have about 500 pieces of range pick ups as well. This will be my first time reloading 45acp and right now so far I have 3 test loads I’m waiting to try. I’m using CFE Pistol, 6.0gr, 6.5gr, and 7.0gr with 230gr TMJ Speer bullets. Shooting out of a Glock 21 barrel is 4.61”.

Here's my load for 45 using X-Treme Bullets 230 grain (plated) Round Nose
CFE Pistol:  6.0 grains (805 fps) to 6.1 grains (818 fps)
COAL: 1.260" with a light crimp
Velocities are from a HK USP 45 full size

just my opinion, but 7.0 grains might be kind of stout and might exceed safe pressures for your Glock 21

Awesome thank you for the heads up. I’m using 230gr Speer TMJs and on their website they actually list the maximum load at 7.5gr! I may just hold off on shooting the 7.0gr load until I get a chrono. Mahalo!  :shaka:

I am stuck with 1000 pieces of large pistol magnums can they be substituted for regular primers?
That’s fine. I’m just a nobody anyways and I doubt this will affect them at all, (not that that’s what I was trying to do). hopefully next time though they’ll treat a nobody like me better.


What happened at Roy's?
