I have been looking at various web sites and at some local suppliers of shooting equipment to buy bullets, specifically .45 ACP. Having just started out reloading I am not clear on what the difference is between a .452 and a .451 diameter bullet for the .45 ACP, and yes I know .001. I am currently using .451 diameter bullets.
I am assuming either one is acceptable. Can someone shine some light on why one would be better to use, assuming that there is a difference.
