    9mm Loading data for 145 RN Acme coated bullets.

    JDillon, that was exactly the load I was going to try next! My WSF load shot fine in my XDM5.25, but would get stuck in my S&W 986...

    9mm Loading data for 145 RN Acme coated bullets.

    Jcc7x7 - I will try Blazer brass. Back when ordering new moon clips from T-K Custom, they mentioned to use Win, R-P, and Aquila. So far I'm not convinced these all work. Thanks for your input! Mcfoto- Yeah, most revolvers benefit from using Federal primers. Federals are more sensitive & ignite easier. I've been reloading for 28 years and love shooting my 38 special 686. It always works, even with an extremely light trigger. My 986 has been back to S&W for timing issues and has always had issues lighting off primers. It seems to have come with an extended firing pin, which I replaced with a T-K extended anyway. This didn't help. Everything else is stock. Also I removed a ton of burrs, but still didn't cure the problem. I have a few more things to try, but open to ideas.

    9mm Loading data for 145 RN Acme coated bullets.

    Thanks for the starting loads. I went on and loaded up some rounds last night with 3.6gr of WSF, federal primers, and overall length of 1.115. They pass the plunk test in my xdm and fit similar to factory loads in my 986. Hope they are work and are easy to remove from the S&W 986... This revolver I really want to like, but continues to give me issues. I haven't been able to get 2 full moon clips through it without misfires or tough extraction. I bought a much of factory stuff to try as well. My XDM seems to not care too much and cycles fine with anything.
  4. I was wondering what overall length people running. My goal is to find a decent load with WSF or WST for use with my S&W 986 and XDM5.25. I was thinking a load of 3.8gr of WSF would be a good starting load. Any information would be useful. Thanks!

    ACME 147 vs 145

    I just bought 1k of the 145 Rn lead to try in my XDM 5.25 & S&W 986. Any one have loads using WSF, WST, or TG?

    Tactical Solution 2211

    I do not have experience on the TS, but my Marvel version1 runs like a top with CCI standard ammo. It’s extremely accurate with a test target of .8 & 50 yards. I think the key to any tip end is to figure out what ammo the guns like. Have fun, they are a blast !

    9mm bowling pin loads

    i guess this depends on what you call "Pin Shoot". If the pins are only on a 12" deep table, yes, a 9mm would work fine. I'd use whatever your gun feeds the best with a flat nose. If you shoot at "The Pin Shoot" (formerly Second Chance) good luck with a 9mm... The 45ACP & 50GI rule with large, flat, heavy bullets. I've shot this match the past 2 years, and prior to that 10+ years as Second Chance. They do have a 9x12 even which is knocking pins over 12 pins and the 9mm luger does rule this event. Nothing else.

    Any 45acp Shield owners here?

    I’d like to know as well. I’m torn between a shield and a small 1911.

    Popple holes?? Drill or EDM Sinker

    I'd use an EDM if you have access to it! No burrs.

    Para C6.45 slide options

    Thanks! My Dad would like to change slide to make his C6.35 into a hybrid/longer slide carry gun. Something different.

    Para C6.45 slide options

    I posted this originally in the 1911 forum, but no one answered. Does anyone know if the C7.45 3.5" or 12.45 LDA 3.5" slides will fit the C6.45? If so, do you need to modify anything? I'd like to make this into a 3.5" gun.

    Any solve the titanium cylinder/ brass sticking issue?

    In my case it appears the issue was the bullets were loaded too short while using .357 lead. Seated at 1.170", they work perfectly. Slower powders like WSF help also! No polishing yet.

    Any solve the titanium cylinder/ brass sticking issue?

    I finally got out to try a few loads this weekend. Sticking the bullets out to 1.170 really helped the brass sticking and accuracy. WST and WSF both worked equally well. Thanks everyone. I may stick with 3.2gr of WST and 124RN for now. The 160gr RN really intrigue me. I use 200RN in my 38 special and they are crazy accurate and feed awesome!
