.45 ACP Large vs Small primer pockets

.45 ACP Large vs Small primer pockets
If you do a little investigation there is a big difference between the large and small primer pocket .45 ACP

The bottom line is that small pistol primer.45 ACP are designed and loaded for promotional, value-priced purposes (mostly training and target practice). However, small pocket .45 ACP brass is still manufactured to high quality standards! It’s great brass! especially, when loaded with the correct-sized primer that it’s intended for. Most duty ammunition is all large primer pocket .45 ACP, and large primer .45 is still the most desired primer pocket out of the two options, because of it’s capabilities and availability through precisionbrass.net

Obviously, all safety precautions should be taken when reloading.
