This Powder Through Expander (PTX™) was specially designed for loading Hi-Tek Coated .45 cal. cast lead bullets for .45 ACP (.451″-.452″). It is sized to provide enough case expansion to prevent shaving the polymer coating. And to provide for minimum swaging of the bullet’s base, the expander portion is almost three times longer than the standard .45 cal. Powder Through Expander.Features

Q: Can I use the .45 HTC Powder Through Expander for .45 Colt?
A: Yes, but if you are loading bullets larger than 0.452″, you will need to adjust the powder die down enough to flare the case mouth to accept the larger diameter bullet. There will also be some minor sweging of the bullet base with soft lead bullets.
