    Load for shadow two using these components

    I’d try 3.0gr and work up. With your barrel, you will probly hit power factor around 3.1-3.2ish. I can’t tell you OAL length. Do the plunk test to figure it out.
  2. I understand. The reason I shoot 10 yards is because my rear sight is wide and at 25yrds my grouping wouldn’t be a good representation of the load. Too much human error at 25yrds for me.

    Sport Pistol for .40 S&W Major PF

    Have you had a chance to shoot more Sport Pistol? I’m interested in hearing how clean it shoots for your 40.
  4. I would say it is the accuracy and feel that creates the sweet spot for me. when I can get a 147gr bullet to be soft and shoot good groups, it is a winner.
  5. Range update: I went and shot this bullet with titegroup, n320, and sport pistol. They all grouped decent at 10yrds. I realized the sweet spot with a g34 factory barrel for titegroup is in the 3.1-3.2gr range, and the sweet spot with sport pistol is 3.2gr. N320 was 3.1gr I think but it may be too close to sub minor. all were at 1.125 OAL

    Mini boom

    This was the first thing I thought after reading about where you picked up he brass. Stay away from 9 major brass. They can stretch out the base and your sizing die won’t catch it.
  7. https://www.egglestonmunitions.com/shop.html#!/9mm-147gr-Flat-Point-500-Count/p/121781018/category=10873433 this is what I bought. The finish is really shiny and smooth, and it looks great. Really durable. From my previous experience with them, they don’t have that smell that the blue bullets did with certain powder after shooting.
  8. The base is smooth. I have shot their 115,124, and 147gr’ers and they all had that rough spot under the bullet from the mold. One of the reasons I posted this is because they recently got a new machine that makes the 147gr flat points. the base is smooth and rounded, and the finish is much better than previously!

    Eggleston with G35

    I am using the blue 180gr eggleston bullets in my Glock 35 with factory barrel. I barely (scrape) pass the plunk test at 1.135. I currently shoot them with 4.3gr titegroup at 1.125 OAL. Also, The color shouldnt make a difference in the bullet profile.
  10. Hey guys, I wanted to give an update on these new flat point 147gr’ers from Eggleston Munitions. I just got about 1,500 of them from my local reloading shop (Kentuckiana Reloading). I just loaded up a 100 of them to try, but haven’t had a chance to shoot them yet. They look great, and the finish on them is really nice! Load is: 147gr flat point 3.0gr Hodgdon Titegroup 1.120 OAL Gun: Glock 34 gen 3 Factory Polygonal barrel If any of you have tried them already, I would like to hear your experience. I’ll update when I shoot them. 1.120 OAL may be just a tad too long for my Glock mags.

    Favorite coated 147gr?

    147gr rn Blue bullets are my favorite. They work great in my Glock 34 gen 3. 3.0gr of titegroup at 1.135-1.140 OAL feels amazing. For practice I use eggleston munitions 147gr rn. Their quality control isn’t quite as good as blues.

    Hodgdon Titegroup vs VV N320 for 9mm

    I’m sorry, I meant +-.1 grain! Yeah, 1 grain difference would be bad with titegroup lol

    Hodgdon Titegroup vs VV N320 for 9mm

    In Southern Indiana where I live, the n320 is about $40 per lb. The titegroup is $21.99. Big price difference. As far as shooting goes, I have used both, and prefer the titegroup because n320 meters a little weird on my Hornady LNL. (+-1gr.) also, the “dirtiness” of titegroup is not that bad. I will admit that n320 is cleaner, but titegroup dirt is a grainy dirt, and is easy to clean up. Titegroup burns a lot hotter than n320 though, which can affect your fiber optic front sight over time. Pluses and minuses, if I could get n320 to meter right, and the price was cheaper, I would be shooting it. But for now it’s titegroup......but I did recently buy a pound of sport pistol to try.
