  1. I use Missouri bullets ! I was asking about falcon, because I seen them online. In fact just ordered 1000 of Missouri IDP#1 200gr semi wadcutter I prefer the their uncoated bullets and they do have the blue lube. I've shot 1000s of these never a problem with leading ! Don't know if falcons blue lube is the same as Missouri But it doesn't cause a problem for me. Just saying . Thanks for the reply though Jeff
  2. WTF ! Didn't need a lecture! Just asked a simple question!
  3. Just wondering if anyone has tried these bullets from Falcon bullet company ? Thinking of giving them a try!
  4. Thanks Guys! I was pretty sure they would be fine, But just wanted to get a few opinions here!
  5. Just wanted to chime in. I went to PA for vacation. Don't know if anyone here remembers the pin shoot in Topton PA, I shot it twice before they shut down! But I got a chance to go by Randy Hollowbush gun shop, Got to talk with Randy a bit about the good days of pin shooting, He told me that the New Pin shoot in Michigan , is like the ones he use to oversee but some rules are the same but different format and some new rules Hopefully , If the stars are right for me next year, I can be there at the Pin Shoot in Michigan !
  6. Got a question concerning some .356 bullets I have , They were originally for 38 super, But now that I do not have the super anymore, I'm wanting to use them in 9mm ! My question is, Will I have any worries with the diameter being .356, When 9mm is .355? I'm 95% sure, That I know the answer, But wanted to ask here and see what pros and cons there were to using this bullet in 9mm. BTW the load will be for a G17, suppressed and will be loaded to subsonic levels. also these bullets are FMJ and not plated 130gr! Thanks for all and any info Jeff
  7. Now I can take my pin gun out of mothballs ! I been looking for a good pin match. 'Can anyone tell me of any local pin matches here in SC or NC? Would like to find something local for warm ups for the big one!
  8. Thanks for all the info guys. will check it out!
  9. Going for a vacation in Easton PA , visiting wife's family! Anyone know of any good ranges to shoot at in the area? I will be in and around the Easton, Kutztown area! Any info would be appreciated! Thanks Jeff
  10. Thanks Sarge, I will do that ! 9X45 The bullet diameter Im using is .355 and its in all makes of brass I use ,but the worst is speer !
  11. Sarge, Thanks for the reply! I have always set my dies in the way you describe, and every time I reload, I have always used the edge of my bench to check for any setback! I don't reload as much as I did when I was shooting several matches a year, But the problem has just shown up in the past few months. I have noticed that speer brass seems to give more of a problem with setback than other brass! So for the past 2 months I have been culling those out in a separate bucket. Now that I know the problem is the Dillon die, I will use my lee, and use the speer ! Sarge, One question, I'm using my older Lee sizing die ,But it is not long enough to get it locking collar on it to lock it down securely . Does the Lee U die have a longer body than the regular Lee sizing die? Thanks Jeff
  12. I've had my 550 since 2001 I have loaded thousands of rounds on it, using the Dillon factory 9mm die set! Had no problems, in all those years, until about 3 weeks ago, Out of 200 rounds, about half were not usable, I could take the round ,push it against the table top and the bullet would sink into the case. I have never had this problem before! I took out the sizing die first ,inspected it, cleaned it and readjusted it . And proceeded to go through the other dies one at a time and readjusted each one, still had rounds that could be pushed deeper in the case! I pulled the bullets, and check crimp, crimp was ok, just removing the bell on the case. So then I sized a few cases, took them out, after only sizing and found that neck tension was not what it should be. (bad brass)? Took some new unisized brass and sized them only, same thing , neck tension was not good in about half the cases Well I gave Dillon a call, explained what the problem was ,and that I had inspected, cleaned and readjusted all the dies. I told him that everything I tried I couldn't get consistent neck tension, and that I have never had this problem. He had me hold for a couple minutes and when he got back to me, He told me that the Dillon sizing die is only good for about 100,000 rounds then its wore out.. I asked him will carbide wear out , he said in the Dillon die it will. It hard for me to believe that , But I'm having the trouble with the Dillon die ! BTW I put my lee carbide sizer in the 550 and in 200 rounds loaded, not one was rejected for setback. Can anyone tell me if they have had this problem and what may be the cause
  13. Its happy reloading now, Just score 4 lbs. of N330. I know it higher than any other powder I use, But its been while since I've had the good stuff!
  14. If your really worried about under charging or and over charge, try N330, I think it is the best powder for 9mm. It works very well with 9mm ! My go to load, 3.5grs , under a extreme 147gr bullet, Use to be the Rem 147gr match FP till they got so expensive. worked very well for me!
