Does anyone know if Promo is a flake ,ball ,spherical powder
Unless things have changed, Promo is a larger packaging of Red Dot. It is a double-based Flake powder. Double-based meaning that nitroglycerin is added to it's nitrocellulose base. ;-)

Re: What kind of bullet is the most used in the active shooting matches

I have used a lot of different bullets for Piddling and off hand target shooting . Some Factory but mostly handloads. I am not a picky shooter and if I can keep my shots in a 2 to 3 in circle I am happy. one shooter of comp. is using cast bullets from a Texas firm and I have used some copper plated...

Re: Nazi’s removing statues in America after winning WW2

So did we win WW II? Mao Tse Tung's forces defeated Chang Kai-shek's for a communist China. FDR ceded Eastern Europe to Stalin and the Soviet Union which Churchill strongly opposed and shared a somewhat similar opinion as General George S. Patton's in defeating the Soviets while they were still mass...

Re: I was "assaulted" today.

The guy sounds like a liberal jerk who was aware of the 06 posting. Might have even assumed you were a CHL type who was obeying facility rules. Just what we need in this country, younger versions of Michael Moore the movie jerk. I certainly believe that you handled it correctly. With those types of ...

Re: For Canik pistols as well as other brands.

Here I tested the trigger pull on my TP9SFX 4 out of 5 less than 4lbs Average 3lb 13oz Definitely consistent with the other trigger gauge checks that I've seen in the reviews. In the installation video, they installed the Jefe in an SFx. I was a bit concerned at first because you can see how they p...

Re: For Canik pistols as well as other brands.

I have the TP9SFx and I did not shoot it for while. The trigger is still factory. Do you recommend getting the same trigger/spring kit for it? Never mind, I ordered the kit anyway. 1) Trigger 2) Spring kit 3) Grip tape You owe me no favors, yet I will ask for one. After you install the Galloway Pre...

Re: Dillon 750

I wonder what kind of bullets work the best in a progresive. I have used all kinds and it has never been a problem. that said in the 1960's I used Swaged Hp with speer half jackets. Hot stuff. 26.5 Grains of 2400 with a 220 gr HP in a model 29 6.5 in bbl. The jackets would sometimes come off in fli...

Re: I'll Agree to disagree

They're essentially making new premium ammo. Handloads vs Reloads. For me, the sorting has become necessary because of the variations in brass due to all of the discount factory ammo where many shooters never pick up their brass. Well any of us with new brass are making "new" ammo- but the discussi...

Re: Dillon 750

As far as the USAMU, how many times are they reloading their cases, more than once? How many dedicated operators are dong that and what is their production rate? I don't think that matters - earlier comments were about sorting and comparing SS to progressive... so whether you both use new Starline ...

It's the same trigger as for the TP9sa. Think you'll like it. ;-)

Re: Dillon 750

Over 45+ years, I've loaded hundreds of thousands of rounds of pistol ammo using some new brass, but far more range pick-up brass. I've never had a catastrophic case failure, not once. I've had cases split after having been loaded several times, but no catastrophic failures, damaged guns or injured...

Re: Dillon 750

While my Dillon experience is with a 550, the feedback so far on the 750 is very good! Also, don't assume that it's just quality vs. quantity- the USAMU loads it's match ammo on Dillon progressives. :fire Yeah, they also say that David Tubb makes rifle rounds on them as well. They don't specify tha...

For Canik pistols as well as other brands.

I treated, what is essentially my 9mm handload test pistol, the Canik TP9sa, to a flat-faced trigger from these good folks: https://gallowayprecision.com/ Theirs is called the Jefe and I paid all of $22.50 for it and another $18 or so for their spring kit. They make the Jefe for a number of differen...

Re: Dillon 750

10 years ago, even 5 years ago, I would not even offer an opinion on someone's choice of press. One of the problems that has existed, beginning in 2008, is that there have been a record number of first-time gun owners and lots of discount ammo has come to the market in addition to those we already h...
