  1. Plus....Action work and extended firing pin.
  2. 3.1 grains with a Bayou 147 gn RNFP @ 1.140 oal gives me a power factor of 129 from a 9mm XDm 5.25. That same load with a 145 gr RN (Bayou) @1.135 oal still gives me a 128+ PF from a 9mm 1911.
  3. SingingShooter....It would require pulling the optic to photo. My gunsmith drilled and tapped the second screw inline and just in front of the original and used an identical screw to help secure the adapter. It took him all of about 20 minutes to complete...including finding the correct screw. I'm really Lucky to have a GREAT GUNSMITH who is also my shooting Buddy.
  4. Springer only had so much to work with and did a heck of a job with their adapter plate for the XDM 5.25....but the pistols original design was for adjustable sights not optics. I had the same problem as others with the mounting plate loosing after a few hundred rounds using blue loctite. My gunsmith took care of the problem with the addition of another screw through the mounting plate. After nearly 3000 rounds everything is still tight.
  5. Does that affect your hit factor ?
  6. I've gone through about 5 lbs of ASP in the last year here in Southern Oregon where temps vary by as much as 80 degrees from summer to winter with the same load, with no noticeable change through the chronograph. 9mm...147 grain Bayou FNRP bullet...3.1 grains of ASP and Winchester SPP .
  7. I had to shorten the OAL of the bullet I've been running in my Springfield XDM to operate in my Kimber Target ll. (Kimber lower/Caspian 9mm upper). Neither Tripp or Wilson Combat mags would feed until I shorten the OAL. Now the Kimber/Caspian combo eats them like a cookie monster. Bullet profile can also make a big difference in how things will operate.
  8. 3.1 grains of Sports Pistol and a 147 grain FNRP Bayou Bullet seated to 1.135 /1.140 OAL with range brass equals a 129 PF out of my XDM 5.25. Clean...accurate and soft recoil.
  9. Question ? If you were penalized 30 Mikes and 16 FTSA would that not be a negative score for the stage ? 9.5.6 "The minimum score for a course of fire or string will be zero". Should apply....or am I missing something. Thanks....that is kind of what I thought. But sometimes my simple mind needs help.

  11. I've had good results with Power Pistol and coated bullets although I'm shooting a heaver bullet....147 grain. 3.8 grains of Power Pistol produced a power factor of 129 out of my 929 revolver.
  12. 4.5 grains of Power Pistol @ 1.130 OAL might be a little warm with the 147 grain bullet. If I remember correctly the Lyman Cast Bullet loading manual starts at 4.1 grains. I backed that down to 3.9 grains in my XDM 5.25 and made powder factor of 129 with good results using basically the same bullet. I've found 3.0 grains of Sports Pistol using the same bullet works even better...cleaner...less recoil and better consistency in extreme spread and standard deviation.
  13. Every bullet I reload goes through my EGW gauge and I haven't had a failure to feed or eject since I purchased it. That's been 15 to 20,000 rounds. Yes the gauge is tight and the ones that don't pass the gauge test get set aside and examined for split or deformed casing I'll then plunk test the ones that pass. I maybe over working and thinking in my reloading process but I'm an OLD DOG and it's hard to teach me new tricks.

    Just a thought....check your crimp. Blues measure .355 most other coated bullets in 9mm are .356
