  1. ELEY USA: Shooting ELEY .38 Super Comp at the Big Country Tactical steel match ELEY USA: Most people don't realize it, but using ELEY actually increases your shooting speed by 10% (Really?)
  2. Some videos from RMR facebook page of making "ELEY match bullet" production process - https://www.facebook.com/rmrbullets/photos/a.164961740263755/2345674178859156/?type=3&theater Here, Jake talks about keeping lead core weight consistency to +/- 4/10th of a grain (Measured weight variance more typical of less than 0.5 gr total) The birth of the match bullet. It all starts with the core. If your lead is consistent then your bullet will be too Where it all begins Production process
  3. I agree that there are many other good choices.
  4. Thank you. I tried to use "bds" for this forum which are my dogs' initials (Blaze, Daisy and Steffie) but somehow it didn't take (I can't remember now why) and kks took (my daughter's name and my previous dogs Kimberly and Sammy). * Sigh * In hindsight, I should have picked a more mundane first thread to post like case wall thickness and resulting neck tension/bullet setback you guys could all reference - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/myth-busting-neck-tension-and-bullet-setback.830072/page-4
  5. BTW, WST is reverse temperature sensitive and if you developed your loads in colder winter, your velocity will be lower in the hotter summer - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/question-on-temperature-sensitivity.817116/#post-10473222
  6. Oh no. I am not the manufacturer who is "longdayjake" on THR. I am "bds" on THR. We have seen him go from pre law school days selling bulk/closeout/blemished bullets on the side to become a true "mom and pop" American dream and celebrated together when he first bought a refurbished bullet making machine. I have been a reader/lurker since 2013 and had planned to start posting after retirement this year and ELEY/RMR news happened to be my first post ... sorry, not intentional.
  7. GrumpyOne, Thanks for the PM and the warm welcome.
  8. I was just trying to validate my identity as a longtime poster on a gun forum in reloading category and my efforts to "myth bust" using factual objective repeatable measurements (As much as possible as I am human and still learning) while focusing on helping other members/reloaders solve their reloading issues.
  9. I am member "bds" on THR. While I have been lurking those years on BE but posting actively on THR. I was a medic in the Army and spent last 24 years in CA state government service and retired this year (July 4th!!!) and these are my various "myth busting" threads where I "try" to get to objective facts and pending retirement projects - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/thr-group-project-pistol-advanced-reloading-concepts-and-discussions.778197/page-10#post-10966692 If you are member of THR, moderator Walkalong can vouch for me (I can send him a PM as to kks ID on BE) A quick search on THR Handloading and Reloading category should reveal who I am (My noted thread which helped many many reloaders since the component shortage days) - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/where-are-there-reloading-components-on-sale.707473/ All of my threads on THR - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?search/38659936/
  10. Quote from Guns America Digest article - https://www.gunsamerica.com/digest/rmr-9mm-124-jhp-mpr-review/?utm_source=email&utm_medium=20190708_BlogDigest_336&utm_campaign=%2Fdigest%2Frmr-9mm-124-jhp-mpr-review%2F&fbclid=IwAR0px_E2pxIBTpEGsu3J1xLvk86kfwopr2zmXyU2jlAL_2Ij3-hskEk4PtI "As we can see the RMR 9mm 124 JHP’s produced exceptional results. I have tested many different bullets out of my Infinity so I know what my gun is capable of."
  11. Looks like ELEY will be showcasing the new round in September so we'll get to see how it performs soon enough - https://www.killoughshootingsports.com/index.php/ammo/eley/action-38sc/eley-38-super-comp-124-gr-fmj-rn-major.html "ELEY will be showcasing the new round at the European Handgun Championships in Serbia this September as well as the ELEY ammunition Area 59 championship in November."
  12. That's true. But ELEY could have chosen any match bullet of their choice. Chances are, fact that ELEY chose RMR bullet may be because during their testing and evaluation, RMR bullets were more consistent and produced smaller groups. Perhaps.
  13. May depend on the OAL/COL used. To be sure, do some case fill calculations to see if you are going to end up with a compressed load - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/wst-in-9mm.854647/#post-11199933 I measured several 9mm RMR 124 gr FMJ RN and longer bullets measure .598" So using OAL/COL of 1.135", my max case fill is: OAL - Bullet length = 1.135" - .598" = .537" I measured some resized WIN cases and I got .747" as average resized case length. So I subtract max case fill from average resized case length and I get .747" - .537" = .210" I used the end of my dial calipers to mark the inside of the case and filled it with WST to mark and weighed the charge - 4.6 gr. So for .598" length 124 gr RN bullet loaded to 1.135" OAL, max charge of WST before powder compression is 4.6 gr. This is in line with what CocoBolo posted who I follow -
  14. OK. Well, it was Bill Drummond who did the testing for Guns America Digest and below are his 22 yard groups - https://www.gunsamerica.com/digest/rmr-9mm-124-jhp-mpr-review/?utm_source=email&utm_medium=20190708_BlogDigest_336&utm_campaign=%2Fdigest%2Frmr-9mm-124-jhp-mpr-review%2F&fbclid=IwAR0px_E2pxIBTpEGsu3J1xLvk86kfwopr2zmXyU2jlAL_2Ij3-hskEk4PtI Team Infinity IMM Open Gun with a Cmore RTS2-6 minute red dot - RMR’s 9mm 124 gr JHP (MPR), Starline 38 Super Comp case, CCI small pistol primers, CFE Pistol. Average velocity 1390 fps. Overall length 1.235" with .378" crimp. 22 yards.
  15. ELEY chooses to use RMR bullets for their new line of match ammunition - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/eley-chooses-rmr-bullets-for-their-new-line-of-match-ammunition.854750/ How does RMR bullets compare to other bullets?
