For one, I accidentally bought magnum primers for the 45, and i went to load one today to make sure I had everything (giving dad the reloader and all the components for the -06 and the 45) and I couldn't get a Magnum lire pistol primer to fit in the 45 hole. it was federal brass and I popped off a round right before I tried to load it.....Any thoughts for this? I know large rifle and magnum rifle primers are the same size, so I thought pistol would be the same too.
Also, I was looking at the reloading specs. and it had 45 ACP and 45 auto rimmed, but it referred to it as 45 auto. I always thought 45 auto was just what some folks called the ACP. What does this mean? I understand the 45 auto rimmed, obviously, has a rim, but it this what people refer to when they talk about the 45 auto? can you shoot 45 auto outta a 1911?
