View Full Version : 45LC Resize Die: good to use for 45acp???
Can I use a 45LC carbide resizing die to FL resize 45acp brass?
Thanks for your input
Most likely no as the base diameter on the .45 long Colt is bigger then the base diameter of the .45 acp so the .45 acp base may not size small enough to feed into the chamber properly.
source of your info ??
It might work,in the Speer reloading manual it lists the 45 Colt as a straight wall case, 0.4800 dia. The .45 Auto is tapered 0.4762 at the base and 0.4730 at the bullet end. I would try to resize a case and see if it fits the .45 Auto chamber.
"...Can I use a 45LC carbide resizing die to FL resize 45acp brass?..." No. The Colt case is 4 thou bigger in diameter.
Go here to compare the two cases. http://stevespages.com/page8d.htm
