Idea for my 1st batch of reloads.
So I started reloading my .45 ammo a few weeks ago and rather than spend a whole bunch of time "working up" a new load I did the stupid thing and reloaded a batch 100.
I started with the minimum recommended load (185gr rn, 5gr W231). when I went to the range with them, they are too light of a load to cycle the slide completely. Now I need your wise thoughts on my next idea.
I was thinking instead of pulling the bullets and starting over, I have an old recoil spring. I was thinking of cutting off a coil or two to lighten it and use that spring for the rest of this batch of ammo. Will that work OK?
