Re: What Did You Do In The Reloading Room This Week?

Also consider that while SIERRA and SPEER do not show pressure data, which I prefer, that certainly does not mean that the loads are not pressure tested. About as clear as mud, right? I used to say quite often that every handloader should have at least one Lyman manual. The reason being that the da...

Re: What Did You Do In The Reloading Room This Week?

Good info, thank you. I agree with you on length. I always load a new bullet by taking a dummy and seat it down a few thou at a time until it plunks and rotates freely and then a few more until it feeds smoothly. I load to the longest length my shortest bbl can handle in a caliber. ( but for rifle I...

K-Texas, Purely out of curiosity, do you mind sharing the gun (bbl length) and charge weight at 1181fps? 5.2 gr of Silhouette is...

Re: What Did You Do In The Reloading Room This Week?

Almost forgot! I just came in from loading 124 gr. RMR In-House JHPs in 9 x 19mm. Those are fantastic projectiles! Consistent, well made and super accurate in my DW 9mm. I load them over varying charges of Silhouette- depending on the purpose. I just recently bought another 3k of them! Off topic bu...

Re: Pulled over for speeding, Plano

I never understand why some leo wants to know where you are going? Is that relevant? It's not relevant at all but it's a trained ice breaker for the fishing trip ... if you refuse to answer it, they can step into high gear pretty quick.

Re: Cleaning Crevices

For general cleaning I also use the pick and wet patch method. (and pipe cleaners in the FP and extractor channels). Then when I fully detail strip I use a stiff brush and gun scrubber spray to bring those nooks and crannies as well as hidden areas of the entire frame/slide to clean. Oil as required...

Sadly it sounds like the folks running your meeting have illustrated the difference between an expert and a know it all.

I wish you good luck in finding a more suitable place to worship.
