How I reload

All brass is ready for reloading . All primers MUST be facing up that way you know there is no powder in case . step 1 remove 1 case and charge case at step 2 , then put bullet in case from step 3 and go to step 4 and seat the bullet right now and it is now completed . For any reason you don't complete it put it put back into loading block empty and primer facing up . Never put a case with powder in it down . This is not fast but you will NEVER double charge a case or one without powder . Step 1 thur 5 take 10 seconds I just timed myself . I can stop at anytime and pickup where I left off and not worry . This has worked for me over 40 yrs and I bet I made million round of ammo in my life . It is fool proof

I just completed loading the 500 40SW that I shot in my New Glock 35 in the last 2 week .

500 rounds for you people who don't reload . My cost is $76

$52 for bullets
$21 for primers
$ 3 for powder

This was before I did the trigger . The Gen 4 trigger sucks but I have a Gen 3 at 3.5 lbs in it now .

$21 for primes
$ 3 for powder

That is for sure the safest way. I may just try that. My primers are always up in an empty case. I charge and move to the back of the block, look over them with a light and then seat the bullets.

60% of the pistol brass I have I pickup at the range FREE or you can buy 1000 once fired 9MM for $35 . You can't count the brass because you can reload it 10 to 20 times . So I guess $3 for 500 brass for 9MM , 40SW , 38 special and 45ACP after reloading it many times .

I watch TV in preparing brass so I don't count time and each cal is different , 40SW take more time then 38 spec because there is 2 extra step , and rifle normally takes less steps then pistol . I DON"T make ammo to go bang , I make CUSTOM ammo for the job I'm going to use it for . . My ammo is 3X better then factory . You can't buy the stuff I make . I see many people make over 500 rds in a hour with progressive presses . There is too many steps they leave out and they are making ammo that goes BANG in my opinion .

There is a 1000 things to cause splitting . Some Nickle brass split fast , over working the brass in belling and crimping , high pressure loads , brass too hard and bad head space .

Is it because steel is a harder metal making it more difficult to reprime and resize?

Boxer primed steel cases can be reloaded. I reloaded a few USGI steel .45ACP cases (TW 45?) just to see if I could. I would have to go look at the headstamp as I don't remember for sure. I do know that they were WW2 vintage.
Anyway, I used 230gr FMJ, looked ok and shot ok, just plinking at cans.

I am not advocating reloading steel, I am just saying that it can be done.

Here is an interesting link:
