  1. Need help with 9mm reloads......wont case gauge?

    It'll displace somewhere. Case bulges out is one way. Squishing it down so now theres protrusion is another. If they cycle in your glock, send it!
  2. Reloading Plated Bullets

    Yes. Roll crimp away, just don't over do it, it'll cut into the plating and shed. Its happened to me with a "I'll show you , you dirty litte shit" roll crimp.
  3. Need help with 9mm reloads......wont case gauge?

    Your neck size/ measurement looks shy. Jacketed neck diameter should be..........380? quick google image check So i'm guessing neck size should be .380 + difference in lead ( .356? .357?) = .382? Your case gauge might not work with lead either, just a diameter thing. If you really want to...
  4. Acceptable Bullet Weight Variance for Long Range Competition?

    You're going to have to sit down and start separating them into weight classes or groups. No point in tossing them out, just burn em off. Bergers seem to be the go-to for the long range crowd on the yub-tub.
  5. Hornady 300 grn 45ACP .458 => pistol??

    http://www.elmerkeithshoot.org/GA/1969_01_Elmer_Keith_Favorite_Load.pdf https://oregontrailbullets.com/xcart/images/filemanager/uploads/otbc-load-manual.pdf Pg 98-101, 101 has 250's for bottom feed If it helps, heres my 255 load chrono results (in a 625, but I've heard tell that they work in...
  6. 9mm Power factor w/ 115gr, 4” barrel

    Yep, normal it is. 147's will get you where you want to be. 124/ 125's might do the trick, or at least get you above min. Looking at a burn rate chart, Bullseye would have been the fastest and should have gotten you closer. Fast is what you want for the short stuff. As much as I'd hate to say...
  7. Bullet Manufacturers Lead Times

    Plated bullet manufacturer has ammo cans of 1500 9mm (various weights) for around $150 Boxes of 500 for other calibers
  8. New Hornady Lok-N-Load AP! - clean and lube questions

    Its pulling moisture from somewhere. Is it surface rust or the chunky-monkey type? Can't wait to see what my presses look like after spending a year in a POD.
  9. What would you pay for case prep?

    And it was at this point, that the forum moderator realized asking a bunch of shills, flints and cheap-asses, what they would pay for a service. "NEVER AGAIN!" he yelled at the sky, shaking his fists in frustration.
  10. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    @EddieCoyle might be able to shine some insight on that
  11. The line-up (.....what are you making?)

    Nothin. Nothin at all until the house is built. I made a mess at work today. Probably make another one tomorrow. Consistency is key. Theres a municipal range up the road. Might head up there this weekend and do some unloading with that henry.
  12. Interesting day at the range

    It does run those S&B 124's really well
  13. Interesting day at the range

    Dig out your book that came with your new 9mm and look for either- "Firearm Manufacturer X recommends Bullet Company A in this grain weight" Test target and what was used if it lists it. I have a CZ that was dead on (to what the test target produced) with 115's. I hate 115's. Soon as I went...

  15. Odd results with 158gr LWSC .38 and Titegroup powder

    I don't suppose the bottoms are bare? I've had some bad luck with titegroup and bare-bottomed lead.
  16. How to use Hodgdon load data..........?

    It has to be an outrageously stupid question to get blasted in this sub-forum. I've asked plenty of em myself. Powders that work- Ask around at matches and shoots or here. Its a good way to narrow down whats reliable. Availability also plays a big part. Once you find a powder you like, buy...
  17. How to use Hodgdon load data..........?

    Heres another head exploder- You can also use a lymans book for plated, greased and coated lead. Grab a booklet and it has all kinds of fun stuff thats not listed in a full manual. You can use jacketed pistol data for plated/coated/greased lead up to 1100 fps. Discovered that in a Hornady book...
  18. 44 spec. loads in my Henry rifle

    Pistol data might get you into trouble just because the burn rate of the powder. I think Lymans and the Hornady book had .44 rifle data Out of what you listed for powder, Titegroup and CFE Pistol might burn too fast. Unique and 2400 work like a charm, slower burning. Blue dot's good for heavy...
  19. Reload Rework

    These things? Toss em or scrap em. If I had to guess the purpose it was either- 1) To achieve max velocity with a small charge and save on powder, or 2) To prevent seating to far down, or 3) Designed by a 3rd grader and deemed super-awesome by some meth head marketing engineer at a production...
  20. .38 Long Colt

    Side note- I’ve noticed heavier (170-180 gr) with that egg shaped nose profile speed load a lot easier.
