    No, just a real short case that is a little smaller diameter than the hole its in. The real short .45 auto case is the problem. I usually dump the powder and pulled bullet in a plastic cup. After i'm done I remove the bullets and recycle the powder.

    Recycle as in use the powder again? I wondered if the short case was part of the problem. Thank you very much again!

    Yes...I would reuse the powder as long as you know what powder it is.

    At today's powder prices, it sounds weird not to reuse reclaimed powder. That is basically what you are getting with surplus reclaimed powder from pulled ammunition.

    If you are wondering where to empty your "powder can" it makes good lawn and garden fertilizer. I used a large spice container for my powder can. It has a shaker top which makes it easy to dispense as fertilizer.
