  1. It's a great powder for 9mm minor and it will serve you well. I've been running my 124gn coated bullets at 4.2 grains @ 1.14 and get 135PF out of my 5 inch barrel. I also loaded quite a bit of 147's with it before switching to the 124's. The only thing with 231/HP-38 is that it's very sooty and dirty. Even after a few hundred rounds my hands would be pretty dirty and the inside of the gun would be black. It never appeared to have any effect on function even after not cleaning the gun for at least a thousand rounds or two, but worth mentioning as it was the only thing that annoyed me about it. I ended up switching to sport pistol when I ran out just because I wanted to try something new. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. I don't disagree that it's a little silly, but I think it's the price point that makes it interesting. If it's cheap, has a low footprint, and it actually works, why not? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  3. I really like the coating on the blue bullets. Most other coated brands use Hitek, which I've shot a ton of and they always performed great, but at least from my experience, the blue bullets coating produces less smoke overall. This is unimportant if you shoot outdoors most of the time, but I shoot indoors quite a bit. The only thing with blues is that they are undersized at .400, so depending on your barrel, they could be less accurate than other cast bullets which will be .401 They make a special order profile for 9mm for .356, but unfortunately it doesnt look like they do that for 40.

  4. Even the budget 1911s will shoot better than you will for the accuracy needed for action shooting. The RO is a great gun and I would personally spend the money on some other things that would benefit you a lot more.

  5. The problem is that I do a lot of indoor matches in the winter and I haven't really found a set of plugs that reduce the noise enough and still let me hear the range commands clearly. This is why it's been hard to make the switch from my electronic muffs.
  6. Has anyone had an accuracy problems at all with the blues being sized at .400? You can order the all of the blue 9mm bullets with a special order profile of .356, but it seems that they don't do that (.401) for their 40 cal bullets. I'm new to 40 and was wondering about that.

  7. Bummer. Really liked those bullets. Thanks for the confirmation. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. Another vote for the plastic bag method. I just generously spray in inside of a gallon plastic bag with One Shot, dump a bunch of cases in, and then work the lube on the cases by squeezing the bag. The lube doesn't get inside the cases this way, so the powder won't stick to the sides of the cases when measuring charges. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. Raising this topic back from the dead. Does anyone know if H&S went out of business? I went to order some more bullets and the website is gone, Facebook page as well.
  10. Yup, did the same thing on my second match. I was about to bend over to grab my mag with gun still in hand, but the RO sensed what I was about to do and gave me a sharp warning before I did it. He probably could have DQ'd me, but I guess he was feeling generous Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. Sweet. Just ordered an 8. Threw some primers in there for good measure. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. I really would like to get a pair of these, but the only thing that's stopping me is that they don't look like they will fit under a pair of muffs without messing up the seal. Can anyone chime in on this? Edit: I see the post further up saying that they don't really work with muffs. That's too bad. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. I don't wet tumble anymore, but when I did I used these pins. https://stainlesstumblingmedia.com/shop/stainless-tumbling-media.html I never had any problems with any of them getting stuck in the flash holes or cases. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. Unique used to be under the Hercules brand before it got bought out by Alliant. My father gave me a pound of unopened Hercules Unique from the early 80s. It smelled fine when I opened it and loaded a bunch of 9mm with it. As long as it was stored correctly, its likely fine. I used current Unique load data and it shot just fine, although I started with the minimum charges just to be sure. The original Hercules version is as dirty as a coal mine, but it works. Newer Unique is significantly cleaner. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. I'm not knocking the Dillon case feeder by any means but a 300 case feeder on a 400 press doesn't make sense. If this is really going to be 120 bucks and it works as well, this will be a great addition for a 550. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
