Re: Source of decently priced .45 projectiles?

You're more than welcome. Whichever poly-coating outfit you go with, this might help. Pull some random samples, weigh them and check their diameters. Then once you're loading them, check the OACL of some loads at random and see how much they differ from what you set your dies for. Consistency is hig...

Re: Source of decently priced .45 projectiles?

Thank you, gentlemen, for all the great information and links. It is a lot of data to process so I'll go through it this weekend to see what I can find. I have thought of trying coated lead bullets but never run them myself and heard of lead transfer to the barrel etc. I'd like to avoid that. So I'...

Re: Glock 44 - .22 LR pistol

I'm not a huge Glock fan, but I've owned a few. I am, however, impressed with the simplicity of this Model 44's design. One question remains concerning the energy of different .22 LR loads, and if any change in spring weight will be required for rounds like the Stingers, etc? If Glock has them all c...

Re: Glock 44 - .22 LR pistol

Interesting. Wish the article gave better detail as far as how the slide functions and lock-up. ;-) Looks very much like the Advantage Arms, with a larger steel insert. Straight blowback, no barrel lockup. Dual recoil spring could be more forgiving of a variety of loads. My solution was to cut the ...

Re: A great discovery for higher velocity 147 gr. 9mm loads.

Or 3N38! IIRC, 1206 FPS rom their 4" test barrel with the standard pressure charge. I've never had the opportunity to get any N105, but 3N37 was the powder I used when I got into Super-Sonic 147s about 20 years ago. One thing, however, concerning the 3N38 load. Guys that I've corresponded with for t...

Re: hog hunting with 10mm pistol: 180gr or 200gr?

There is this thing known as sectional density that is more telling than caliber alone. Obviously a 10mm 200 gr. bullet has a higher sectional density than a 180, but that doesn't mean a 180 doesn't have enough. A 200 gr. 10mm also has greater sectional density than a 230 gr. .451" bullet. The next ...

Re: TX: Chambers County Woman killed by feral hogs

A very serious problem here is hitting them in your car. As I mentioned in another thread, my shooting partner took one out very effectively with a well placed 150 gr. Power Point in .308 WIN about 3" behind a troublesome sow's ear on Thursday. That kinda evens the score because his wife hit one in ...

Re: My Shooting Partner's New Pig!

TAM, to my way of thinking, the .308 Winchester is one of the most useful calibers we have for anything larger than Varmints up to anything to be found in the lower 48. I'm kind of partial to the 7mm-08 REM, but it was the .308 WIN that spawned it. Lynyrd, no doubt about it. My SP said she dropped l...

Re: My Shooting Partner's New Pig!

How big was she? I just had a tech from the cable company leave here, but while here, he told me he dropped two hogs just yesterday at his brother's place in Poolville. He said the two hogs had attacked his brother's domestic pig, fighting over its food. Gashed the domestic pig up some, but it's do...

Re: My Shooting Partner's New Pig!

Piggy got dropped yesterday by a .308 150 gr. Winchester Power Point at 75+ yards. About 3" behind her left ear and lower to around eye level. She dropped like a sack of bricks. Just a day before as we were leaving the local range, my SP got a call and pic from his wife. His neighbor asked that if t...

Low Flash Magnum Revolver Powder

Just wanted to update on Accurate 11 FS. As sunlight was fading Wednesday, I put a good number of rounds downrange in 7 yard double-action shooting. I'm trying to go through some loads I made for a past project. The bullet was a 158 gr. RMR plated hollow-point. 16.7 grs. of 11 FS and a CCI550. I did...

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...
