    Actually, there are THREE "45" diameters.
    45 ACP, for example = .452"
    45 Colt/454 Casull = .454"
    45-70/458 Socom = .458"

    So, when you are reloading 458 Socom, it needs to be .458"

    I NEVER sell my scrap brass. I always trade with the scrap dealer, for LEAD! He's happy to get the lead off his property, and I always get a great exchange rate.
