After some test'n. This is what I'll be do'n.
W-W .454 Casull case. Std SP primer.
Fill the Speer .45 cal capsule with #9 shot(about 151-152gn).
Put 8.0gn of Unique into the case, and seat the capsule to a COAL of 1.700".
As far as a crimp goes. I just pushed the case a bit back into the F/L size die enough to straighten the bell out of the casemouth plus .005" smaller than the case wall.
Load shoots very well to 20' from my 4 3/4" bbl. Recoil is supper mild, and the capsules don't jump forward.
No unburned powder, and the load doesn't gunk the barrel up much.
Hav'n you along, is like lose'n two good men......
