.45 ACP stove-pipe (why?).
Okay so I am reloading for my SA Range Officer .45 ACP and have the following issue.
On the first round fired the spent case is going to stove-pipe in the ejection port about 80% of the time. However, once the stoppage is cleared the gun functions flawlessly and I am thinking that maybe I need to increase my powder charge?
Suggestions are welcomed and encouraged.
Gun: Springfield Armory Range Officer 5" bbl.
Brass: mixed Winchester / Browning / Law Man / Remington......
Primer: CCI 300
Bullet: 185 gr JHP
Powder: 5.4 gr Universal.
Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
