Ref:  Lyman Reloading Handbook, 49th Edition, pgs 380-382
Ammo I've been using: Winchester 45acp, 230grn, TMJ (white box).  Have about 500 of my own, once fired brass.

Ok, thinking about getting into reloading, got myself the Manual above and have some early questions?

1. Manual calls for 1.275 OAL, but my new ammo (listed above) measures 1.255 ????

2. Data for each caliber in the above left corner, for each round,  lists figures for "BC" and "SD" what is this?

3. Test components for the 45acp lists: Remington & CCI primers.  I shoot Glock 45's and the dealer I got them from recommends Federal primers, as they are "softer" with less mis-fires.  Any truth to this.  And does it matter what primer BRAND I use as long as it not Magnum and is the required large or small, depending on case?

One comment: hope I can find a local supplier of Primers, to AVOID the LARGE HazMat charge!!

Stay safe and Practice often
