    40sw open comp

    Could go .357 SIG with a 124 and a ton of slow powder to work the comp.

    For 9mm MAJOR Topics

    The RMR in-house 124gr JHP is a great bullet, it expands well and is super accurate, but it needs to either be loaded very short compared to most other bullets, or run in a barrel with a super long throat.

    Sns coating problems

    I love the quality and consistency of SNS bullets, but I got barrel leading no matter what powder was used.

    Budget or Fancy?

    Very nice looking just how it is. What thumb rest is that?

    Remington 1 1/2 SPP

    Dont use them in any hot loads as they are meant for low power cartridges like .25ACP
  6. I like the Hornady dies

    Is VV 3N38 worth the price for 9mm major

    Silhouette looks nearly identical as well, but is a very different powder.
  8. I run it as low on the trigger as I can put it and still have it fully supported.

    This is what I keep reading, too, but does anyone have any proof of that?
  10. I must have a bottle from that "hot" batch of WAC, because at 7.4gr I was blowing out over 90% of my primers and I was above 180pf with a 124 PD JHP.

    Sport Pistol Powder opinions? A year later

    I found out too late. I just bought 16lbs of Silhouette last night.

    9 major or 38 super comp for open?

    I get the feeling that those aren't sized cases as the level was higher than that for me when I was loading.

    9 major or 38 super comp for open?

    3n38 compresses somewhat well, and I had no case bulging. Everything went through a shockbottle hundo without problems. That said, I am still switching to Silhouette. 8.3gr under a 115 shot beautifully. It loads easily, too, being only about 2/3 to 3/4 full.
