    Shot my first reloads today

    So I finally shot 20 of my reloads with my dad today. We still both have functioning firearms and hands.

    We shot .45 ACP using 230g Speer TMJ RN with 4.7 gr of Bullseye behind it and Winchester primers. It felt exactly the same as Winchester WB (my normal factory ammo). If there was a difference in either recoil or accuracy it was imperceptible.

    I can't wait for my Pro Autodisk to arrive!

    It was awesome to see all the rounds work as expected.

    Thanks for answering all my newb questions!

    Andy

    I'm waiting on my Pro Autodisk, as well. My scale arrives today, and I should be able to load up some 9mm. Just been waiting on the scale to check my powder charges. Using Hodgdon Clays powder at the recommendation of the guy at the gun store. We'll see how that goes.
    Be Safe,

    Congrats! Now power your loads down a little bit and see how you like it. You will be amazed at how much you can soften the .45
