I admit my reloading mistake and thank you Teach
A few months ago I needed to load some 45 acp so I loaded a few but I couldn't find my case gauge but I had loaded these in the past and never changed the press so I thought I would be good to go. I could have chambered a few in my pistol but I was confident everything was still good. I loaded around 1000 rounds and then I remembered where I left my gauge so I check a few and they won't fit. The mouth is not crimped enough so I try to run them again with the bullet seater crimp die, that didn't work. I went through them all and sorted off the good ones and was preparing to pull the bullets but while Teach was here I showed him my reloading room and showed him my screwup and he told me to get a crimp die and I could probably fix them. Tonight I fixed them and it was a piece of cake. I learned several lessons over this deal especially do not assume dies stay set after use. Thanks Teach, this was a lot easier than pulling bullets.
