  1. I guess that is a very respectable number for a gun that is tight as a 1911/2011. There were never designed to be shot that much before being cleaned anyway I think, but I could be wrong.
  2. Thanks zzt for all the info. i am getting 8lbs of e3 Monday.
  3. you got it, it is very popular or it was. There are better choices now. It is 231 rebranded.
  4. great to know thanks. how long can you go in between cleanings?
  5. E3 sounds good but it is not listed as a handgun powder unlike the other shotgun powders that are, so that begs the questions, WHY it is not if it is that good? I am not saying you are wrong, I am just one of those curious minds. I have been browsing for powder and I can get E3, WST or 320. I am certainly purchasing 320 because I know it works. WST is cheap but being in Canada, having a temp sensitive powder sucks. It also smokes. Now last E3, I can get 8lbs cheap but I am worried that if I do and it does not work well in my gun then I am stuck with a lot of powder. I cannot get a pound of the stuff because it is being shipped from the other side of the country. Any experiences here with E3 and Campro bullets in a SVI (major load). Thank you
  6. curious about lubrication needs on this platform. I am asking from ignorance really as I have never held one. I am currently running red and tacky grease in my SVI and I really like it, if it is cold I only need to break it with whatever oil (nothing gun specific) and it runs flawlessly. There is 0 indication of wear on my gun since I started using grease. I would like to continue using grease in the honcho, as I am considering getting one in the near future, but since I know very little and this gun is non existent in Canada I can't really see fo myself. Educate me please if you have the chance, thanks!
  7. excellent idea. I find the tear drop release to work the best for me.
  8. This die was perfect when using .400 bullets. Anything over that and it will scrape the coatings off. The body has crimp to it it seems. I no longer own it. Using dillon seating die.
  9. I need to replace 320 to work up a .40SW major load. 320 is hard to find and costs twice as much.. There gotta be something else that is just as good. I think I can find E3 (nationally) but I am not sold on it since it is a shotshell powder... I need to do some research
  10. 10K with no cleaning... lol I think you are good. I can see E3 is designed for shotgun, so how about PSI issues with this powder...
  11. I am the kind of guy that takes the gun apart after every use. the buffer I use is not rubbery but more like a solid plastic with some flex to it, so when it gets dented it shows... in other words, after 1500 rounds still looks like new with zero deformation. My friend runs the same buffer but with a lighter recoil spring and in 1000 rounds you start to see some noticeable wear on the buffer.
