I have to go through all the cases I picked up at the range (most of them mine, but some others as well), and then go through them again. I put all the SPP brass in one bag, and then give it away.

But it pisses me off that I have to go through all that for no good reason.
You poor thing. It's just terrible, that you have inspect your FREE brass.
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.

Thinking maybe I could get some small primmer 45 ACP cheap I did a little hunting. Of about four sites that offered sp vs lp cases three were the same price and one actually charged more for the small primers .
Another site just said "too bad, your going to get both, deal with it". They certainly were not the cheapest either.

So where is this cheap small primer brass? I have 300 sp cases now (Cheyenne Brass stiffed me even after I asked if it was all lp and then wanted me to pay the shipping back so the could replace it (after I spent time sorting it). Cheyenne was overpriced as well. Don't deal with Cheyenne Brass! Actually, Cheyenne does offer sp for less but still overpriced, $62/ 1K w/o shipping. AND you won't know shipping till after you order and let me tell you, it will be more than you think (don't remember exactly but it was over $20 for 1000 45's).

Does anyone make a tool to change small primer to large primer hole?

I cherish every piece of SPP .45 brass I get. Please, if anyone wants to get rid of theirs, PM me and I will send some flatrate USPS boxes to you so you can send them to me. When the next LPP shortage occurs I will happily dip into my supply of SPP .45 cases and shoot away.

I have a 3 pound coffee can full of them. I have small primers. I save them for when I am going to a place where I know I will not be recovering my brass. I load them the same as the large pistol loads. They shoot the same.

I have seen several head stamps on them.

Win Clean
Win L-F
Blazer Brass
Federal N-T

If I remember right I saw a few with R-P head stamps that were nickle cased with small primers. (Could be wrong.)
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.

I run into a few once in a while, but not enough to bother with.
I just throw them all away so I dont have to screw with them.
