  1. @Postal Bob I've thought about it and agree with what you've said. I will try them again when supplies ease up (hopefully). It did look USPS was rough with the package and that's not on lbejihead. It's no wonder I prefer FedEx and UPS...
  2. I ordered 1000 of the .40 caliber 180 gr. RNFP BBs on 23 January 2021 and they just arrived today. The package was pretty beat up and had many holes. Both the two inner 500 head boxes had almost completely fallen apart including the plastic bags containing the bullets. They still looked pretty good, but I was missing 160 from all the leaks - won't be ordering anymore.
  3. Oops! They went back to "Processing"! Deliverus Interuptus I guess!
  4. Anybody get responses from ibejiheads when asking about order status?
  5. I ordered from ibejiheads on January 23, my order is still pending.
  6. Looks like you are sticking to a factory OAL. I did like ZIP in my 2011 loaded long, here's my load data. Bullet: Rainier 180 gr. FN Plated Powder: Ramshot Zip 5.2 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: Remington LOAL: 1.180 Avg. Vel.: 972.97 fps ES: 81.06 SD: 23.47 PF: 175

Average Velocity: 1069.51 fps ES: 30.56 SD: 10.86
  8. I'm another oddball that likes to shoot minor loads out of my STI Edge .38 Super. I haven't checked the velocity on every load that follows (one day). Here ya go! Bullet: Hornady 115 gr. HAP (.356) Powder: Hodgdon Titegroup 4.7 grs.

  9. Another good combo! More like a SD load though... Bullet: Speer 124 gr. Gold DotPowder: Alliant Herco 7.0 grs.Primer: Federal 100Case: Remington Nickel +PLOAL: 1.260Recoil Spring: Dawson tool-less guide rod, 14 lb. Recoil Spring and Wilson Buffer Pad. Twenty rounds at 30 feet.
  10. I use this load in my Wilson Combat Beretta 92G. I seem to use Titegroup with plated and jacketed bullets but not that much with coated (had not noticed that until now). Bullet: Blue Bullet 125 gr. RN (.3555) Powder: Alliant Sport Pistol 4.0 Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: Federal LOAL: 1.130 Recoil Spring: Wilson Combat 12.5 lb. with Wilson Shok-Buff Average Velocity: 1038.04 fps ES: 18.69 SD: 6.00
  11. Can I use old age? I'm 63 and my eyeballs are not what they used to be! LOL!
  12. I know it's not the softest shooting powder and it's not one you mentioned... but my Beretta 92G sure likes BE-86! Fifteen shots at 30 feet. Bullet: Hornady 115 gr. FMJ Powder: BE-86 5.0 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: Fiocchi OAL: 1.115
  13. I don't like posting load data without chronograph readings but this one was pretty good. My 9mm's don't seem to shoot very well with the Speer 124 gr. TMJ but my .38 Super does! Twenty rounds at 10 yards. Bullet: Bullet: Speer 124 gr. TMJ RN Powder: Alliant Sport Pistol 5.0 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: Remington Nickel +P LOAL: 1.260 Recoil Spring: Dawson tool-less guide rod, 12 lb. Recoil Spring and Buffer Pad. Comments: Lee U-Die and Expander used to process brass.
