    Fellow THR reloading aficionados, I want to share my latest and greatest invention with you first. Clearly folks such as yourselves can appreciate quality ammunition.

    Are you bothered by the incessant caliber wars? :banghead:
    Do you think the 45 ACP is great, but could benefit from more speed an power?
    Well, I have the answer for you.
    Introducing the best thing since smokeless powders -- the 45X2(tm)!

    Twice the powder, twice the speed and twice the power JMB's creation.
    Dimensions and specifications are secret as of now, but you can compare it to the 45 ACP and see it is clearly bigger and better.


    OK, now fun time is over --
    Here is what happened:

    And this is the aftermath:

    My MP5 45 ACP clone decided to snap the ejector, resulting in the spent case riding on the bolt, stripping the next round from the mag and attempting to chamber it.

    Man, that was a fun day at the range.

    I have to say, I was actually happy to see this explanation rather than,

    "I was looking over this freshly loaded round and not sure why I set it on top of the next case to seat the bullet."

    That must have been fun to extract from your MP5 chamber.

    Would that be a double tap?

    41 Mag, yeah, the seating on top would have been a great reloading story - of the what not to do type...

    John, it actually extracted easy, it hadn't fully chambered, and of course the creation was stuck to the bolt. Had to pry it out from the claw. But not too bad.

    jcwit -- that is good right there... Maybe I should change the name to the 45X2 Double Tap!

    And I'm glad at least a few appreciate the humor...
