    This is my only 45 Colt.
    I will try to neck size only the next time.
    I use a Lee carbide sizer and it does not set the case completly back even if full sized.
    This is maybe my luck.

    How about lead from the bullet trap at our indoor range?
    It is a mix of 22LR and lead from plated bullets.

    I just tried a .452 bullet in the cylinder throats.
    This was very loose so I guess the .454 bullets will be best.
