Pards and pardettes while I await my french 11mm reloading kit - I have been shooting some reloads from GAD Ammunition - very high quality reloader with a wealth of knowledge and seemingly no end to what calibers he will do.

However, I have made with a 45acp seating die some ball cartridges.

You take the brass, put in large pistol primer and then I have two different loads to try

1. 1cc of 2f APP with a .445 44 caliber ball right on top of APP.

2. .7cc of 2f APP with a lube cookie and then the .445 44 caliber ball on top.

I may try another 5 round set-up using 3f - since I think I could get in 1cc of 3f and the lube cookie.

I hope to test this out in another week or so.

If it works good, will use this method most of the time and use my actuall 11mm french bullets sparingly - due to the cost differences.

The 44 SW/Spec dies would not seat the bullet due to height I think.

The 45 acp die works perfect.

I'll report on how the shoot when I get a chance.

Pic of ball cartridge side by side with french cartridge.

Bummer is the french bullet  in usa 44sw redone brass, does not fit my guns at all

It appears that either their bullet is not sized properly or their brass is much thinner.

Their bullet is meant for their brass - so oh well - if it works in their brass I will just go through the french bullets slowly - while I shoot mostly .445 ball ammo.

My ball ammo fits perfectly.

wahhhhhhhhhoooooo, finally tested out my frenchie 44 ball loads

The 1cc of 3f app or 2f app load had a nice rapport and hit solidly point of aim dead center CAS pistol target distance.

The .7cc 2f app with lub cookie was accurate but shot low and did not have that loud rapport as the other two.

My frenchie 11mm load will be using resized 44sw brass or french 11mm brass:

1cc of 2f app (I have more 2f then 3f)on top of .445 sized 44 ball.
