.45 Colt Display Ammo

Recommended Posts

I do not reload so looking for some ideas for this project. I need 25 .45 Long Colts for display in Cowboy belt.after talking to some Cowboy shooters they say

Nickel ammo ,new or cleaned with no primer.  Brass will tarnish on leather.

Round nose lead,250 grain or so..

How would I crimp with no reloader?

Tried David and several vendors at gun shows,no luck.

Thanks

Will

Did the same thing years ago. This guy is a vet and bought a ton of these to put it my display belt. Actual weight and size.... Dispite his finger prints, they polish up nice... Use a polish glove and give them a coat of Renn Wax to help hinder tarnish..

Didn't see nickel in that caliber but you can ask him. He has other cal nickel case... won't hurt to ask.

      What is causing this and how do I fix it?  
      I'm using a Dillon 550.  Seating die in station 3 only seats the bullet.  I have a Lee Factory Crimp die in station 4.   Everything is perfect until the 4th station where I feel the case buckle.  I reseated the crimp die.  I put a good round in there, raise a dummy round and screw in the die until it makes contact.  Lower the dummy round and turn in 1/4 of a turn.  I raise it up, no issue; very slight crimp but not enough to hold the bullet well (I'm able to push hard and lower the bullet).  I screw in the crimp die 1/8 of a turn; and what you see below is what I get.  I've tried several cases including new never fired cases. 
      I must have loaded several thousand rounds of 223 by now and this is the first I've seen this.  I did not make any drastic changes.  In fact, prior to this, I was had loaded about 20 perfect rounds.

      I have some range pick up 7.62x51 brass I picked up. I have a good load for my 308 brass using Reloader 15. I know 762 brass is sometimes thicker and less capacity. Will it be enough to cause a problem or should I back up my powder charge when using 7.62 brass? I have read both ways.

      What are good prices now? I just bought 200 rounds for 53.53$ out the door. Brass case federal 55 grain. That is just under 27¢ per round.
