    I have some .45 rounds that I loaded with a light taper crimp. They are slightly too long for my XDm chamber. They are Berrys 200 gr Flat Point bullets. Any problems reseating them slightly lower in the case and re-taper crimping them? They are currently 1.24 and they need to be 1.20 to feed well in thie gun with this bullet shape.

    Try one and see if it shaves plating.
    If not, you can do it.
    If it shaves, save it to shoot it in a gun it fits.

    In a word, 'No'. However, I might take advantage of the situation and seat several at .010, .020, .030, and .040" deeper and see which actually does better. But then, that may be just me.

    You should not have any problems. I have done it myself on a number of occasions, with different rifle and pistol calibers.

    Thank you. My original crimps were very,very light. No lead shaving at all. I am going to try a few before I do the entire lot. The good news, I have a great 625JM revolver that will eat anything.

    Does the xd have problems with lead??? If so and they shave it will be lead showing, not much but some... Something to think about:uhoh:

    But I have a feeling not a biggie...

    I've done it before, no problems, the ammo shot fine afterward.

    Most of the time it doesn't pay to over think these things. Try it and if it works fine, if it doesn't you may have to pull the components and reload them.
