I have been reloading for over 50 years but the 44/40 showed me how little I really knew about bullet size, neck tension, bullet seating and correct and consistent case length. After initial trimming of new brass I have yet to need to trim again. Some cases have been loaded a half dozen times. The secret to this is not hotrodding the 44/40 rounds. 1892 Winchesters and Marlin 1894 will certainly stand much higher pressure but that is where brass life takes a dive.
As far as forming from 45 Colt I suppose anything is possible but why do all that. Go to the Starline web site and when they have it order direct from them. At least until the component crisis is a memory. I just ordered 250 more.
