My Very First Reload with Question (pic)
Hey guys just loaded my very first rounds today in 45ACP
I'm using Zero brand 230gr FMJ bullets
Hodgdon HP-38 Powder
Recommended starting load is 4.2 up to 5.3
On the Lee Pro Auto Disk the chart listed disk # 37 and with that It kept coming up short on the scale. I switched to disk # 40 and still short. Disk # 43 measured 4.4 consistently. I only loaded five to see how they shoot. My question is do you think that's an OK powder starting weight? Also am I reading the scales right? I know these questions probably sound silly to you guys that are well seasoned in reloading. I kind of like to keep my 10 fingers in one piece :gah:
BTW the COL was 1.262 on average.
This is 4.4gr right?
