Re: Source of decently priced .45 projectiles?

Why limit yourself to FMJ? JHPs aren't much difference in price. Personally, I don't know of anything an FMJ can do that can't be equaled by a good poly-coated bullet! Plated bullets don't offer any advantage except for Berry"s Hybrid Hollow-Points.;-)

Re: Anyone Interested in .357 Mag Revolver Shotshells?

One last thought here as I shift to finishing the article. Debunking a myth was not what I set out to do here. 7 1/2 shot may not work ideally in the SPEER shot capsules. But it works pretty well by omitting the shot capsules. Even by using a magnum primer, the loads where I trimmed the glue back to...

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

mrvmax, I definitely overlooked you saying PRC. There's so much obsession with the 6.5 CM these days that I made an assumption. Nevertheless, hope the Quik Load data helps with your 6.5 CM loads. ;-)

Re: Anyone Interested in .357 Mag Revolver Shotshells?

Yesterday's tests were revealing. Referring to the pics above, the dome shaped seal and wad stayed intact and looked like a typical .357 hole in the target but on the outside ring. The loads where the glue was cut back to the case-mouth did just slightly better. Overall, I concluded that nothing was...

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

I loaded up some 6.5 PRC for my new Savage High Country rifle. There is not a whole lot of load info yet so I called Barnes and Berger to get some load info. I already had some 110 gain TTSX bullets from Barnes that I am trying and some new Berger 140 grain Elite Hunter bullets. I have some Norma M...

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 ...

Re: My Newest Holster

Turns out that slight amount of barrel exposed below the holster was intentional. The front sight on GP100s is slightly set back from the muzzle, anyway. When my shooting partner won a 4" 686+ I tried is as I was thinking the holster was made for both with the length set for the 686. Turns out that ...

OOO000ooops! A bit more than 2 or 3 pages back at the blog. See what getting old will do for you? The article actually appeared a bit over 4 years ago, so I'll just post the link: https://blog.westernpowders.com/2015/11/important-steps-for-autoloading-cartridge-success/ A note about the SIERRA 9mm d...

I must admit, when I read the title I thought the thread was going to have a picture of your shooting buddy rocking an M-60 machine gun. :oops:
LOL! If he had one, little piggy would have already been dispatched. The only roasting once she is dispatched won't likely leave much behind. ;-)

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

flechero, Silhouette is my go to powder for 124 gr. JHP defense loads in 9 x19mm. I've loaded the RMR 124 gr. In-House JHP to 1181 FPS and they held up in the water test. 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...

My Shooting Partner's New Pig!

Pic from one of the game cameras mounted on the exterior of his house. The time was 5:56PM on Monday. She didn't wait for total darkness and has began terrorizing his neighborhood on the edge of his very small town. Going out to tests slugs this afternoon and the .357 Magnum shotshells I've been mak...

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...

You need to get yourself a mold... :mrgreen: You're welcome, AndyC. But actually, the HiTek bullet shows a few more casting imperfections at the nose than those you made. ;-) Almost forgot!

Like one of my favorite comedians would say, "that guy needed a sign!" While he was still above ground, anyway. You can't fix stupid. ;-)

Re: TX: No place but Austin

It seems that the demo-commies want to put reparations back on the campaign table. Being a child of the 60s & 70s I've seen a lot of changes where hopefully the majority of them have been positive. Thinking about this after recently seeing that the dims want to fester old wounds. And you know what? ...
