    I've got enough avid hunters at my office to support getting into shot-shell reloading, but most of them use the 3-1/2" Super-Magnum shells. Which presses can load these monsters? I'm sure the return on investment to load tungsten Supermag shells would be considerable. Even if I'm trading them ammo for game, I think I'd still enjoy the process. Thanks!

    Looking at the photo of the breech in post #8 it looks to me as if the firing pin is centered on the extractor, and the imprint from the case is a lower circle than the circle which is the full diameter of the extractor hole. Also, the hole in the primer is off center as the firing pin is off center to the imprint.

    In any case whether it is or isn't off center should be easy to see either way, as stated above.

    Ragged, I asked that about not being a reload because of your previous postings in which you are clearly learning to reload for the .45 acp. So, if you are reloading why go to the expense of new ammo for this outing only?

    This is certainly a mysterious happenstance, but it is one that could be accounted for by the type of things that occur when errors in primer seating or powder throwing take place during the reloading of ammunition.

    If such a thing were the case it would not be a first in here, or the last, I'm afraid. I'm most afraid though in those cases where there is a denial of reloading error on the part of the person to whom the explosion (as it were) occured, because it's in those cases where it does not seem that learning to prevent a future occurance has been the benefit of the accident.

    I'm just saying....

    Be aware that you need a ATF manufactures license to sell reloaded ammo.

    A prudent person would also need a lot of liability insurance in todays world to load ammo for a bunch of co-workers, any one of which will sue you for everything you have if they manage to have an accident with one of your reloads.

    BTW: 3 1/2" mag wads are few & far between too.

    Tales from the crypt...

    This thread is almost seven years old and the OP hasn't been online since January. I doubt he's still looking for info here. I wonder if krs intended to post to this thread anyway since his response doesn't seem to fit.
