Re: Need Hornady Data for 6.5 Creedmoor

Since my last post here I took delivery of 8# of Norma URP. Haven't bought a rifle yet and not even sure it will be 6.5 CM when I do. I have come up with a Wildcat of my own. If I go into all of the expense to develop it myself it will be proprietary. What I'm mostly interested in is the best perfor...

Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

Can anyone point me to the section of law that restrictions discharging a firearm on your own property, outside of city limits, unless you are on more than 10 acres? I am seeing this cited in random websites and forums, but no actual source to back it up. I'm in Harris County, outside of any city l...

Re: Texas "10 acre" rule for discharging a firearm outside of city limits?

Last time I checked with the TX Dept of Wildlife, statewide, the minimum is 5 acres with counties having the ability to raise the minimum. For instance, here in Brown Co. the requirement is 10 Acres. When in doubt, ask a Game Warden! ;-) I'm unable to find the law that says that. Are you able to so...

Re: Screenshot of the QAS Q-Model

Interested but I wasn't able to enlarge to pic so I couldn't read the data... Try enlarging the text size several sizes. I push and hold down CTRL, while tapping +/= . On my computer, this makes the pictures easier to see for my old eyes. To make it smaller, push and hold CTRL, while tapping _/- . ...

Re: .357" 158 gr. XTP

Made more loads yesterday and went up to Lyman's 17.0 gr. Max Charge that chrono'd 1309 FPS from their 4" Universal Receiver. The load is getting very close to 100% load density and I'm hoping the higher charge will get velocity near to the factory load level. I made these loads with high expectatio...

Re: .357 Magnum Revolver recommendations

You're in luck: You can get a Ruger GP100 with a 5" barrel. We just started shooting my shooting partners S&W 686+ 4" 7 - shooter. Never thought I'd be interested in a 7 shot .357 Magnum, but all signs are good at this point. I have a 4" blue GP100 made in 2013 and it's a gem. Really good DA trigger...

Re: Screenshot of the QAS Q-Model

I'll help navigate the spreadsheet. The top left is where you enter the input data. Some variables related to JHPs are already entered. No changes needed until you change bullet types. Dropping down to diameter, you'll need to enter the average diameter. If you're checking a recovered JHP that petal...

Screenshot of the QAS Q-Model

Charles Schwartz graciously granted me permission to post this screenshot of the Q-Model analysis of an experimental load I made with the 124 gr. HST to see if it is capable of matching the performance of the Underwoods 124 gr. +P+ Gold Dot load that TNoutdoors9 sent me for evaluation after firing t...

Re: Anyone Interested in .357 Mag Revolver Shotshells?

Had success with at least one pic. The other is just an overhead of the top to show the wax. With these first test loads I used a soldering iron to get the wax flush with the case-mouth. ;-) https://i1339.photobucket.com/albums/o717/K-Texas/059_zpsugqi1iz0.jpg [/URL][/img] https://i1339.photobucket....

Re: Anyone Interested in .357 Mag Revolver Shotshells?

Well Guys, I was hoping to post some pics along the way. The Annoyed Man gave me some help, and I was able to recover my old Photobucket account. Unfortunately, none of the different options will work. Or not, at least when I check the preview for my posts. Photobucket is really kind of contrary in ...

Re: 150 grain hard cast full wadcutters (non +p)

Stash, the 158 gr. SWCHP used by the FBI was rated +P. I included that originally with my previous post but changed it since you may want to stay away from +P loads. I don't have data for the 148 gr. Hollow Base Wadcutters used in reverse while I believe the same powder charges were used while they ...

Re: 150 grain hard cast full wadcutters (non +p)

Maybe the most prolific gunfighter of the 20th century was the late Jim Cirillo. Before JHPs became the mainstay of defense loads, he handloaded 148 gr. hollow cavity wadcutters in reverse with the hollow cavity forward. I don't know of a commercial version, but there are several options for 158 gr....
