Re: Big Shoot-Out South of Eagle Pass, Texas

https://www.foxnews.com/world/mexico-cartel-member-gunbattle-police-texas-border Hopefully the Cartels won't be trying that north of the border. I think they eventually will. Sadly that's what it's going to take to lock the border down. A border town will have to be turned into a slaughter house to...

Anyone want to predict what will happen when the cartels are declared FTO (Foreign Terrorist Orgs)?

Re: Anyone Interested in .357 Mag Revolver Shotshells?

Are you using the hot glue directly on the shot? If so, you might read up a little on wax slugs - with the end being glued it might be performing somewhat as a half slug half shot hybrid. My personal experience with diy shotshells has been with 44 mag brass using the coated paperboard from school p...

Re: Anyone Interested in .357 Mag Revolver Shotshells?

Made another change after my last post. I decided to cut the excess glue above the case-mouth in order to keep the payload weigh more similar. I did keep one as is to see if it does anything on target. ;-)

Re: Glock Killer ?

The FN 509 Midsize has replaced my Glock 19. The shape of the grip and the grip texture of the 509 Midsize is perfect in my opinion. I do like a grip texture to be akin to a deeply knurled weightlifting bar. I like the FNs. Back in 2010 I wanted an FNX in .45 ACP and couldn't find a place to shop a...

Re: Which 1911 Sights

Never seen better sights on a 1911, and a few others as well, than Novak's. For a series 70 that'll probably mean some dovetails will have to be cut. And, of course, tritiums are available. ;-)

Re: Anyone Interested in .357 Mag Revolver Shotshells?

Next Batch Again, apologies for the preliminary pics with all the holes in the target. I was not expecting the loads to do as well as they did, but I knew there would be more tests to come. And I couldn't get to the target stand to hang a fresh target with each test. At the last minute I decided to ...

Re: Glock Killer ?

Gotta admit that I really thought about adding a .38 Super with a SIG P220. Don't know if it's still available in .38 Super, but was last time I looked. Things are actually better today if you like .38 Super and handload, once you decide on the best ejector, anyway, in the case of the 1911. The Supe...

Re: .357" 158 gr. XTP

Pardon the double-post but something else came to mind. As far as expansion and penetration from a .38 Snub, it might be worth considering what the FBI once did. When they were issued 3" S&W M13 .357 Magnums, the duty load was a 158 gr. LSWCHP +P .38 Special. SPEER and Hornady still make those bulle...

Re: .357" 158 gr. XTP

The XTP has a reputation as a penetrator. Did the bullets that went through the water jugs expand much? I'm currently doing some work with that bullet in my 38 special J frames. Boxerrider, the 158 gr. XTPs expanded about the way you would expect. IIRC, Hornady states that XTPs will typically expan...

Re: .357 Magnum Revolver recommendations

If you have an internal debate of single-action vs double-action revolvers, consider yourself lucky. Getting close to 63 now, I feel rather blessed in finding that because my eyes are not as good as they once were, nor my hands as steady; I can shoot my GP100 as well at 7 yards in Double-Action as I...

Re: .357" 158 gr. XTP

After going through some reevaluation of my Balance beam scale and digital, I got another digital. My shooting partner has had very good results with the Frankford Arsenal unit sold by Midway for like $30. It weighs up to 750 grs. rather than the 1500 grs. of other more expensive models. Hoping mine...

Re: Powder Recall

As Ed McMahon used to say, "you are correct, sir!"

I was speaking so much about the powder deterioration so much as what it's done to the lids on the containers. ;-)
