  1. So WSF.... Not N320? Glad for being part of this place!
  2. Off note my bore is oversized at .356. Used coated at .357 with not great luck. If going to coated I want .358.
  3. Titegroup works but The recoil is violent at the pf. It is accurate but I like the idea of wsf. It does push but not much. It is accurate as well. Thanks all. More suggestions appreciated!!
  4. Hi, I just purchased 2 cases of Precision Delta 38 Super124 grain rn fmj bullets. This my first batch of them and got them bc recommendations I read on this site. These will be used for 9mm minor pf load and looking for an accurate and soft combo. The powders I have are Bullseye, Power Pistol, AA #2, 231, WST, WSF, Titegroup, and N320. I just picked up N320 and have not used it yet. I seen Power Pistol listed as an accurate load but not very soft. This will be shot out of a CZ Shadow short dust cover. Any load suggestions are appreciated. Thanks
  5. Groups tightened up but still leading. Think I might be done with 9mm and lead for now. If you would like pics of the barrel or group I can post.
  6. Thank you Miranda and I have checked cast boolits. Maybe I should have started there. Either way thank you all for the guidance.
  7. Hi to everyone Thanks to all for such good advise. I did change the oal after testing it. I am using Fc as brass and haven't changed. Will reply back with results with picS.
  8. Hi Miranda, I fired a total of 60 shots and only noticed the leading when I went to clean my gun after the range. So the leading could have occurred on the first shot or possibly the last few shots. Now I know I need to be more vigilant in watching for it. With Dillons recommendation on the flaring it is .010 to .020 not .001 to .002. To me that is excessive. My flare is at .381 right now. When I size a case it comes out at .374 I think. I will double check when I get to the press. I am not sure how to size tighter than what I am already doing. I have the sizing die almost kissing the shell holder. But however I think I will try.358 bullets next. I am still going to try and make these bullets work. Thanks for your time! Stan

  10. Thank you all for the replies! I first started with my crimp and opened it up to between .379-.380. It still passed the plunk test and was able to chamber the round. I then thought my case tension might be to tight so I opened it up a little bit. That was bad it was way too loose and had major setback. So I set my flare to where it has the right opening and tension without setback. I did pull the bullets for inspection after my adjustments and I measured the bullet prior and after and I confirmed of no deformation or swaging so I am pretty happy there. Next I am going to try a longer OAL. I am at 1.13 right now and will try 1.140 next. I don't have much free time over the weekends because I work but should have some time Sunday to test the rounds with the adjustments made. I am actually using FC for the brass and I am loading on a Dillon RL550b so I am using their expander die. Dillon recommends flaring out between .1 to .2 over a sized case but for these bullets I can not flare that much or I will loose case tension and have setback. The gun I am reloading for is a XD-Mod .2 3". Its my only 9mm at the time and am looking to purchase a steel frame full size 9mm for my next gun. That will be another post on suggestions. Thanks again for the help so far! Stan
  11. Hi all this is my first post here but have been following for quite a while and have gained a lot of knowledge from this community. I am still new to reloading and have about 5000 rounds under my belt. Currently I am having issues with leading out of my 9mm. The bullet is Darda's cast lead 147 gr flat point bevel base sized at .357. I chose .357 because I slugged my barrel at .3555. I have shot other bullets at.357 and worked well but they were coated. Also the bhn is 16 which I don't think is too hard. The type of leading I am getting is streaking following the rifling. The load I have is using WST from 3.2gr up to 3.4 gr. My crimp is right about at .378 and my coal is at 1.13. I heard this was a good starting point but I can load longer. I believe I can load out to about 1.14 almost to 1.15. I am stumped though why I am having leading issues and the accuracy is not good either. I am open to any suggestions. Thanks!!! Stan
