Thanks, I've got it in my shopping cart at Midway, but am waiting to buy until they get a Glock part in.  I use Federal to reload hardball, Starline to reload .38 Special, and Winchester to reload wadcutter in .45.  Everything else is Starline.  Is Hornday o.k.?  Like I have a choice I guess.

I love Hornady, but then I'm a Nebraskan so maybe I'm prejudiced. ;D

Hornady makes excellent stuff.  I'm probably prejudiced, too, as a couple friends work there!

Good, I'll order when they get the back order stuff in.  I've never had any problem with any of the brass, but I've never used any of it. 

I'm considering making my loads for my "As Issued" 1911 with the leftover stuff I have.  That way when I don't find it all, I won't be as upset.

"The more you buy, the more you save!"

Yeah...that never worked very well for me..."Honey, I saved $150 when I bought this $2,000 rifle!"
It works better when I say..."Look at the new rifle I bought you!!"

Yeah, that really works with her.  Did you see the look she gave me when I told her you needed another gun safe?  LOL

Thanks Drydock, just ordered 50. I bought a bag from Graff awhile back, gives me 100 new cases plus my old stuff.


As to the current thread shift, I just under price my new toy if my gal asks about it. But usually in our golden years and 41 years together she really doesn't care.

Hi

I haven't SHOT any of this yet, but I found it interesting that I didn't need to trim the primer pocket inside or out.  Starline takes more work that the Hornady does.

Jumped on a couple hundred of the Cap Tech from Graf's.  My 400 sierra 220 RN still on back order.  Local Sportsman's Warehouse had no Sierras but did score 100 of the Nebraska Generated 220 rn from Hornady.
