  1. I agree, good response from Precision, the Gallant bullets worked out, but case prep was a problem with the Dia supplied, went with the Lee univ expander die and the NOE plug at .358 it's a stretch for .358 bullets but got SD at 9 and 17 spread on the crono
  2. 78Staff, talking about Precision Bullets, they have changed the ojive on some of the bullets. https://youtu.be/09RYIvCHZP4
  3. I agree, the seating die can sometimes take the bell off the case before the bullet is fully seated, I really don't care the the lee expanding powderdrop die either as it bells the case mouth too much, I prefer the lee universal case expanding die and use the NOE expander plug for the size bullet you are seating.
  4. I had tried some of those 135gr Rn over CFE Pistol, maybe I will try them again with SP
  5. That 105gr has good potential I think, not crazy about the grooves but that is probably my issue with loading it, have had more success with the 120TC straight shoulder but have to load pretty short, that 3.5gr of SP is probably in the ballpark with 135gr RN depending on OAL
  6. I was thinking you might be using Bayou based on the 95gr, that weight seems to run good in the shorter chamber guns. Might have to do with twist rate also?
  7. My 1911 seems to favor the 125gr RN, that's good info for reference! Might have to look at a spring change to run that though.
  8. Is that Precision bullet the .358 FP Cowboy bullet?
  9. Who's bullet are you using, seems like 1.020 might be close to min OAL depending on the bullet
  10. I'm reaching out for advice on a light shooting Steel Challenge load, currently using Sport Pistol and CFE Pistol. In a CZ P-09 and 1911 in 9mm
  11. That makes sense, my P-09 likes the 120gr TCG. I may try the the Blues in 125RN as my 1911 likes that bullet made in other brands.
  12. I have noticed Blue sells their 9mm bullets at .355", lead bullets usually start at .356" and some of the coated mfg's will size to order in my experience Bayou offers custom sizes, just received a number of profiles and weights 100pc packs last week sized at .357. I'm curious why blue lists a .355" dia, I haven't tried them but lots of comp guys use them. The main thing I will say is if you select the TC bullet profile, make sure you do the plunck test when selecting OAL.
  13. I chose the 125 FP for the precision purchase looking for use in other guns. I have settled with a 120TSG Bayou for the CZ P-09 and 4.4 of CFE Pistol working really well at 1.043 OAL. So far the Sport Pistol loads haven't done better, but some test loads are pending.
  14. I have some .358's have been working on a load for 929 with CFE and Sport Pistol, have time off next week hopefully I can do some more testing! The Range is close to me convenient! I also have two other pistols P-09 CZ and 9mm 1911, but it looks like I'm not going to find a common ground so to speak, chamber depths and such. I don't intend on making this a powder selection debate as it gets out of hand. But if you have an experience with CFE or Sport Pistol great!
  15. My understanding of bullet size to barrel size is something like this .3565 barrel plus .001 for bullet size would be .3575 to .358 depending on opinion and rifling, just want to open this up for opinion. Thanks!
