    A travesty is what it is. If LPP's were good enough for John Moses Browning, that's good enough for all time. I toss spp .45 brass since I don't stock spp or load anything else that uses a spp.

    Every piece of good brass deserves a loving home, save it and trade for LPP maybe.
    For those of you who toss it I am sure someone might be interested in it.

    Quoting Mr. Stephen Stills -

    And if you can't be with the one you love, honey, Love the one you're with.

    If you got it, use it.

    I have some spp 45acp brass, maybe fifty rounds, that I saved just in case. Now that I load 38/357 I have small pistol primers that I can use for that brass.

    Sorting it isn't really a big deal to me, since I am inspecting each piece of brass anyway. Just an extra second or two per piece and an extra ziploc bag and it's done.

    I inspect my brass even better now, in the 45 bins, as I am becoming quite a Scrooge, when priming and a small brass works it way through, and there goes a large primer. Months ago, that was no big deal, to lose a crushed primer every now and then, but going to Gunbroker, and seeing primers being sold, for gold price, it almost brings a tear to my eyes... And don't even bring up if a primer drops on the floor... stop the press and nobody moves!

    I use LPP cases period. All the SP cases go right into the scrap brass bucket.

    My performance criteria? SP cases (before I knew what was going on) totally jammed up the performance of my Dillon 550 press. What a friggin nightmare. No thanks.

    This suggests to me you are not examining your cases well.
