Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. I don’t shoot my 10mm in competition, though I am using the same bullets (180gr blues) I shoot in my limited 40 for my 10mm. In my limited gun I run the same bullets about 960-980f/s.
  2. I ended up using Longshot & Blue Dot. Below is my load data for those two powders. I'm using 180gr blue bullets, pushing them out of a para elite hunter long slide (6"). The loads I chose to run with were the 7.5gr longshot, VERY soft shooting, accurate, good velocity & low SD. For the Blue Dot I chose 8.6gr. Not as soft as longshot but was definitely manageable, accurate and low SD. With the max charge of 10.7gr bluedot I had a couple instances where it locked the slide back. It was super snappy and was flattening the primers. LONG SHOT DATA: 7.5gr: 1227f/s ES: 30 SD: 9 7.8gr: 1268f/s ES: 29 SD: 10 8.1gr: 1287f/s ES: 17 SD: 8 8.4gr: 1315f/s ES: 47 SD: 12 BLUE DOT DATA 7.5gr: 1075f/s ES: 46 SD: 16 8.1gr: 1143f/s ES: 76 SD: 21 8.6gr: 1195f/s ES: 46 SD: 11 9.1gr: 1236f/s ES: 61 SD: 20 9.6gr: 1295f/s ES: 74 SD: 22 10.2gr: 1339f/s ES: 51 SD: 15 10.7gr: 1383f/s ES: 47 SD: 15
  3. ^^^I was using 180gr blue bullets
  4. I’ve got a 10mm Para Elite Hunter Longslide (6”). I’ve only tested two powder flavors - Longshot and Blue Dot. The two loads I liked the best are below. 7.5gr Longshot - Avg velocity of 1227 with 9 SD. (10 shot string) 8.6gr Bluedot - Avg velocity 1195 with a 11 SD. (10 shot string)
  5. Thanks Slayer. I only loaded like 12rounds. I just started my load development backwards. I’ll work down from there.
  6. Well CRAP! I was looking at the load data on my phone and I started loading for 180GR JHC, NOT 180GR Coated bullets. And from the published load data there's a significant difference in pressure. What has been your experience with coated vs jacketed bullets in terms of velocity? The base load I loaded just now is .1grain over the MAX for coated bullets.
  7. Thanks for all the replies. I just started working on some loads today. I'm using Longshot, since it looks like it gives good velocity with lower pressure. Starting load is 8.5gr at 1.255OAL. MAX published load is 9.5gr so I figure I'll work it up 0.2 grains at a time.
  8. I'm looking at the data on the hogdon site. 800-X gives the lowest pressure at 30k at a max velocity of 1,210ft/sec. I heard it meters like crap, but kinda wanna try it.

  10. Yep...the auction was this past Saturday (1/16). I’ve had good luck in the past buying guns at this auction at reasonable prices but I couldn’t believe how much the primers went for. If anyone’s interested, this is the auctioneer: https://www.branchauctions.com
  11. A friend of mine went to a gun auction in OK, and I told him to bid on some LPPs for me. I was willing to spend up to $90/k, they went for $350/k. I could not freaking believe it.
  12. I've built two AR10s with BSF barrels, an 18" and a 20" they are very light. In addition to being carbon wrapped, my barrels are also fluted. You can save some money by getting a "blem" which are their test fired barrels (this is what I did). Last I recall, you're gonna have to call and ask what they've got for blem barrels. In terms of performance, accuracy is superb.
  13. I carry an extra fiber in my bag just in case I lose one at a match, along with a lighter and leatherman.
  14. I’ve got a para elite hunter 6” in 10mm and love it.
