worth it? I'm not being picky at the moment about case dimensions, just wanting to make sure the case will load
I have always heard that headspacing is important.

I'm not exactly clear on what it is (honestly) I resize all my cases, and inspect them carefully to see if anything is bulging or if there's cracks/etc. I've not yet come across a case that's showing signs of head space issues.

Rocky Mountain Reloading, Missouri Bullet, Extreme Bullet, Everglades Ammo, Berrys, Mid South Shooters, Natchez, Montana Gold etc...


FWIW- I've been shooting the HiTek coated bullets from Missouri in both 9mm and 45, and they are great. Much easier to load than plated, but maybe that's just me.
Bulk is 1000+ for me. MP actually pointed out that some of the auction sites have bulk ammo for sale, so I've been looking through them to see what I can find. Thanks for the list! I'll check them out as well

For therapy I ran my 650XL after installing a few upgrade items and loaded 100/mol rounds of .45ACP. The press ran slicker than goose shit on wet grass.

For a swaying single stage press get the Lee classic cast. Much stronger than the C press and not that much more.
