    Switching from 180gr to 200gr.

    When I switched to 200's I worked up a major load for it then switched to a 165gr bullet without changing anything on the press and made a great minor load. I'm using 200 gr RN Bayou's with WST at 1.135 for major and 165 gr RNFP Bayou's for minor. Major PF is 170 and minor is 143. YMMV...

    Bayou Bullets is all I use. They're great bullets..

    Para Magwells

    I was in the same situation when I got my P16's last year. I ended up getting the small Para magwells from Cheely. They fit great with no trimming required and I like them a lot. Note that the magwells are not on his website but contact them about instructions on how to order them . It was pretty simple really.

    P14 Mag Extensions

    Just a quick update, I took the Taylor Freelance extension I got recently and filed the top outside corner of the sides and front just a tiny bit, sanded it smooth, put the mag back together and tried it in the gun with the Cheely magwell on and boom, it works! I'll probably order a few more now that I know it will work...

    P14 Mag Extensions

    OK, so I ordered 1 of the Taylor Freelance mag extensions and it fits fine on the mag tube. It works in the P16 without the magwell but won't lock in place with the magwell on. I'll do some filing to see if I can get it to work.

    P14 Mag Extensions

    I have seen those. They're marketing them for Rock Island "wide body" and I as I said above they told me they tried one on a P16-40 factory mag and it worked. I'll probably end up ordering one to see how it works and if it does then get more.

    P14 Mag Extensions

    I may give that a shot. I would love to find a few more Dawson's for Para though...

    P14 Mag Extensions

    I have a couple of P16-40 magazines with these on them however they do not work with the Cheely magwell on my guns. Does anyone have any experience with the Arredondo basepads?

    Bullet Swap for 40 Minor (same powder charge)

    My major load is 4.0 WST with Bayou 200 gr coated for a PF of 172. Same load with a Bayou 165 gr coated gives me a PF of 143.

    P14 Mag Extensions

    I contacted Taylor Freelance and asked if their Rock Island base pads would work on Para mags. They responded that they just put one on a P16-40 mag and although it was tight it did fit.
