Has anyone had a too much crimp situation that caused a problem?
Neck tension is critical for any serious duty use. I would sacrifice an moa for a more durable cartridge. Fine accuracy @ a range just isn't as...
I've had much better success & more reliable ammo using the heaviest crimp possible. Even to the point of deforming the bullet. A firm crimp...
I have my 9mm paired up w my AR, & my 45 paired up w my AK. Problem solved.
That is likely a very rare 8x33 kurz mag for some late war German contraption. 8x33 is shorter & larger in dia. Then 762x39.
Those are Israeli browning links.
That is a Swede K mag. Note the crown in photo.
I've used magnum primers in 9mm w several powders. No discernable difference.
Quite a few powders are like that in .45s. I'm not aware of any that fill it very well.

I've heard of guys using rifle primers in 357mag/max & 44mag, but I've never done it or measured any myself. Thanks for the tip :thumbup:
A primer is more then a spark plug. It is important that it develops pressure. A rifle primer makes more heat/pressure because of a presumably...
I have that same gun. It hasn't disliked anything I fed it. I like unique best.
By "cannot" that means doing so in a cost/time effective manner. Till The time you spend on something like this is unlikely to be cheaper then...
I have done it, but was not able to discern any benefits.
Can YOU make primers? Because I sure cannot.
Cast bullet data is almost exactly the same as plated.
Pour a mold w it & weigh the bullet compared to designed weight. You can get a good idea of hardness that way.
It's always better to sort. If you adjust your die for a "tight" case, you will likely end up a loose bullets @ some point.
