  1. Sport pistol for 38 short colt and pretty much everything else Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I’m through about 10,000 Fiocchi primers. I have one revolver that won’t ignite them reliably. Everything else they do great. I’d agree they are about as soft as Winchester. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Not always true. HS-6 is clean if run near the top of published data BUT you MUST use magnum pistol primers. Regular primers will make it run dirty. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’m getting 1250 fps out of a published load of HS-6 using 124 grain gold dots. That’s from a full size gun. Brass shows no pressure signs. I’d start with HS-6. Could also try 3N37. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I shoot ICORE in 38 short Colt using sport pistol. My load is 3.8 grains under a 135 gr bayou bullet. Yields 131 pf at 4500 feet of elevation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’d be interested. I think it could draw in some extra shooters. Would be fun too if you could shoot something that doesn’t normally see competition, like a 44 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Sounds to me like you may have leading built up in front of the lands that is causing the problem. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Five shots from each powder load usually won’t be enough to determine a statistically significant difference in accuracy. Moreover, pistols aren’t like rifles where the powder can strongly effect accuracy. Barrel harmonics is *mostly* not a thing in recoil operated handguns where the barrel is temporarily locked to the slide until partway through the recoil cycle. The type of powder used has an effect on accuracy, to be sure. But the amount of powder charge has much less of an effect. And powder itself, both type and charge amount, has a much smaller effect on accuracy than the projectile. When I’m developing an accuracy load for a handgun, i first see what projectile the gun likes, and i try several. Then i tinker with powder types and finally i tinker with the load of the particular powder to make sure it is clearing power factor. Honestly, your ability to shoot accurately in a run and gun competition is so much more important than any other factor, that you should check and make sure that your chosen projectile is shooting reasonably accurately, then ensure you are making power factor and that your recoil impulse is not too strong and at that point you’re good to go for a long time. Once you get to the point that you’re potentially busting into the top or second tier of shooters in your area, you can then start taking a closer look at the accuracy of your particular load, because only at that point will it start making a noticeable difference.

  11. I held and dry fired the stainless one capable of multiple caliber changes at the 2017 Shot Show. I believe i also held and dry fired this one or one very close to it (it was blued and not capable of swapping calibers). Beautiful guns. Very well built. Triggers were excellent but not as good as my 627pc with the master action job from TK Custom. Not worth the money they were asking, but still very nice. The Korth Mongoose i dry fired in a booth just around the corner from the Janz booth had a surprisingly gritty and heavy trigger. Not as good as a new production N frame. But maybe it was just the rough floor model. To me these guns are like Ferraris. Cool and beautiful but impractical and mostly made to be parked in a garage and not used, or to be the bling of the uber-wealthy. Not really interested in either of those purposes. I buy guns to shoot them. However, if Janz were to make something priced under $2000, i would give it some serious attention. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Lee makes 38 short Colt dies so you can use the case activated powder through die on a progressive press. 9mm taper crimp die works for your final stage. I found a firm crimp allowed me to get more accurate groups and better SD. Start with low end 9mm load data. And work up. Most powders that work well in minor power factor 9mm will work well for 38 short Colt in a 357 mag gun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
