  1. Save yourself the frustration. I've tried relaying the lessons of basic economics to many in the "2A" community. It's like talking to a wall. "If we could just stop humans from acting on basic human nature, this silliness would stop...fairness". Good luck with that. Save yourself the frustration. Go to the garage. Get a hammer and start bashing your hand. Much less painful than the afore mentioned conversation. Most people, including the gun community, are only free market capitalist when they can get what they want at the price they want. If the
  2. am too in need of some 115 JHP
  3. Yep. Got an order of Nosler 175 RDF’s back last year from Midway. Needless to say they didn’t all make. They were nice enough to credit me back for the missing bullets as they’ve been back ordered ever since. That is weird. I received the 9-125 and 40-180s. Still waiting on the 115s. They said those will be this summer. Did you order a case of the 125’s?
  4. On another note... I do not believe there is a package the post office can not destroy. All my orders have been very well packaged, but damn, you can really see the abuse these boxes are taking on their way to us. Every exterior box looks like it's been to hell and back. I feel like the postal employees are doing on it on purpose at this point. "Wanna put 60 pounds of bullets in a box? Fine, I'll show you." DG and Precision are the best packaged, being double boxed. Strong heavy duty plastic bags inside strong heavy duty boxes, which are then pla
  5. Orders from Blue and Brass Monkey showed up Friday. Day early, weren't supposed to be here till today. This is unusual. So far I have ordered form BBI, DG, Precision, Blue, and Brass Monkey. The packages referenced above are the only ones so far to show up on time or early. All Packages from BBI and DG were several days past the expected delivery date. But at least they made it. Have faith. They'll get there. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to which packages make it where and when.
  6. Lot's o updates. Precision Bullets 9-125's ordered on 3/16 were delivered on 4/16. 4 weeks to the day. Way better than the estimated 14-16 weeks. Which would explain the relatively fast shipping. Excellent product and packaging. Shot my first tests this afternoon. Precision Bullets 9-115's from same order, notified they'd be shipped Monday. Dave from Precision is really good at communicating! Still waiting on 401-185's. Dave advised summer sometime. Ordered a case of Brass Monkey 9-127's about 19:00 MST last night. Got a shipping notification this AM. Ship
  7. Can’t we all just get along... Should get you in the ball park. I know people love em, but I couldn’t get anything resembling accuracy from them. Tried several powders and multiple COAL. Admittedly I don’t put a ton of effort in, since I didn’t see improvement. Decided to stick with 124/125gr. Just a cut and paste, you can ignore my little notes to myself. Gen 3 Gucci G34 Agency Arms Barrel. RMR 135 gr FP MatchWinner 1.090” 3.6 grs 982 FPS 19.5 SD / 70 ES (promise) 3.8 grs 1042 FPS 8.5 SD / 26 ES 1.100” Ti
  8. Just started reloading BBI 180 coated bullets yesterday after loading FMJs for the better part of a decade. Shortage, price increase et all. Anyway, using a Dillon crimp die, I ran the press up with a loaded round in the station. Screwed the crimp die down till I couldn’t screw it any further. Then in small increments started moving the crimp down down until the loaded round would gauge in my Amanov case gauge, AND plunk test in my barrel. I agree. At .423 I had to shove the round into the gauge and barrel. But just a touch more, around .422, gauged and dropped into and out
  9. Think I’m gonna try a case of Brass Monkey 9-127s too. Anymore have any experience with Brass Monkey. Did a search didn’t find much. This is fun! Agreed. That being said, I’m still gonna need JHPs for my open gun. I know people shoot lead in their open guns, but I’m gonna stick with JHPs. Also have a Roland Special G19X that I’ll save the FMJs and JHPs for. AND i shoot plated in my suppressed Sub 9 AR...So I’ll still have to stalk RMR, MG, and Everglades websites
  10. Ordered a case of 9-125, 9-115, and 40-185’s from Precision Bullets on 3/16. 9-125’s shipped 4/12 SHOULD be delivered today. Dave advised 115’s would be another 2-3 weeks and 185’s late summer. Really digging all my new coated lead bullets BTW. Glad the shortage caused me to re-examine them. Cheap and some of the most accurate bullets I’ve tried to date. So far only shot the BBI’s and DG’s. Both awesome. Looking forward to trying the Blue’s and Precision’s. See if that “Proprietary” coating makes any difference.
  11. Used SPP with both 115 and 124 gr major loads. In conjunction with Silhouette and now Major Pistol. I switched to SP magnum primers for my major loads, but the difference is negligible. Maybe a touch better accuracy and cleaner burn. Maybe. SDs and ESs were low with all varieties of primers.
  12. I use a Mr. Bullet Feeder Powder Die. I like Lee stuff. A lot of my reloading dies are Lee. I use the Lee U dies for all pistol rounds.
  13. Thank you. Actually solved my issue. The .356s ended up working great after a couple tweaks. Don’t think I’d ever go back to copper bullets. For me personally I always found the accuracy subpar and these days they are about the same cost as as FMJ’s which defeats the purpose of switching to coated lead. The only thing I use plated for are 147 gr subsonic loads for a suppressed 9MM AR. In that case they are plenty accurate. Appreciate the input.
  14. I respect your work, and you are most certainly knowledgeable, but never and always statements are always false and never true. I understand why people say that ref the LFCD, and it for sure makes sense. But for some reason it isn’t always true. I pulled bullets run through the FCD and they were still .356. So it hadn’t swage them. Maybe it had some other effect I didn’t notice or couldn’t detect. It for sure has the potential to cause issues. I’m open too it. Depends on lots of factors. I’m guessing if I had run the .357s through it might have had some effect. Several of the guns sho
  15. Hey Darrel. I read that awhile back and revisited it yesterday. I was belling to about .380-.383 (mixed brass) Opened it up to .388-.391 (mixed brass). Looks WAY too big. Like throwing a hotdog into the Grand Canyon. I use the Mr. Bullet Feeder powder die. It’s a god send when using mixed brass, and when using big bell as you suggest. I think I may have had the crimp a little too tight. I was crimping to about .377-.378ish (mixed brass). I was using a LFCD. I pulled some bullets and verified that the .356 bullets were in fact still .356, and th
