The flashole is larger on Hydrashok brass than other 45 acp brass. 1. Why? 2. Can this brass be reloaded for other recipies without problems? 3. How critical is flashole size in 45 acp brass? THX in advance, I'm kinda new to reloading knowledge.

1-brass with larger flash holes are made to be primed with non-toxic primers. The primer formula in standard primers is made with one of several lead stiphinate compounds depending on mfg. The non-toxic primer compounds don't have lead in them like standard primer compounds which is the main source of air borne lead paticules at indoor ranges. The non-toxic compounds don't burn as hot as primer compounds with lead in them so a larger flash hole is needed to insure proper ignition of the powder charge.
2-no problem reloading it.
3-it is not unless the non-toxic primers are used.
