I used to buy the excellent Remington .45acp snakeshot loads, but they are no longer available.
They featured a star crimped end, and they fed and functioned very well. Much better results than the crappy CCI plastic tipped cannister stuff.
I am looking for either a source for the discontinued ammo, or dies so that I can make some myself. I presume that I will have to use some longer brass of my own manufacture, unless something already exists that I don't know about.
Suggestions, techniques, formulae, and sources welcomed.
Thank You,
Mad Dog

RCBS used to make a 45 shotshell die set. IIRC it used cut down 308 brass, and a cardboard top card. Seems like the last time I looked, Midway had them.
