    New member here in northern Indiana. Picked up my second SA pistol the other day. Government model Ronin. I have yet to shoot it but hope to this week. It is my second SA. I have a 1911 9mm Operator that I use for IDPA. (Due to the the Covid issue, I have not shot IDPA this year-bummer). I have a couple of other 1911's (Colt Commander & Sig Ultra. I shoot Bullseye with a S&W Victory. Also shoot plates. I am retired and now have more time to shoot (if I can find the ammo).

    I've been looking for the Ronin Operator in .45 since the front page of Guns & Ammo May 2020. I'm like you (retired) but waiting (and looking) for ammo.

    Loading your own is great, never a shortage of ammunition. It's only a single stack so lots of magazines to load. Hate .45 as the muzzle flip is high and in shooting a follow up shot long. My preference was/is always .40 cal, double stack like in the Para. If you are retired then loading is fun and makes shooting cheaper and you know what loads are best. One .45 case last at least 100 reloads.

    Y'all got my immediate attention with the "Ronin" headline. I want to get my first 1911, and this looks too good. I just read a review in Handguns, again, very nice. What I was hoping to see from you Robin owners is your anecdotal experience with it. I will stay tuned.

    Yes, reloading is a great activity. I enjoy the detail for each step. It isn't difficult but you do need a routine without distraction. I'm new to reloading but at this point have reloaded 500+ rounds of 45 ACP FMJ for practice and yes it will save you money if you don't shoot more rounds. Most of us start shooting more when we reload. :)

    I have had trouble finding reloading components, especially small pistol primers and FMJ 9mm and 45 ACP. If anyone has a source for these please let us know.

    The best pistol primers i find are Federal, but will use Winchester. Easy to find and buying 3000 at a time does me for the year nowadays. Previously that would last a month or two. Winchester powder is fantastic and projectiles Speers etc. Dillon Square deal press or Lee 1000?
