  1. 4.6 gns of WST at 1.220" runs around 1120 fps with a 115 gr HAP in my gun and shoots OK...I might try some on a hot day for comparison.
  2. Winchester have stopped importation of powders for an indefinite period of time....so supplies of the favourites, WST and 231 are drying up fast in Australia. I have just broken into my WST stockpile and found that 4.6 grains with a 115gr HAP shoots pretty nicely and feels real soft compared to 231 or VV320. I still have AS30N, ClayDot, AP50N and AP70N for practice...
  3. Inadequate extractor tension....if you are not confident to make an adjustment then take the gun to a gunsmith. It won't take long ... Then you should be good to go
  4. Thanks Kevin...I loaded some 115gn HAPs at 1.220" and 4.5gns ...will give them a try tomorrow.
  5. Thanks Alan550....I will load some up and see how they perform.
  6. I am looking for some Bianchi loads for 115gn JHP and 125gn JHP - caliber is 38 Super, Open gun.
  7. I agree..... The 650 priming system is way better than its competitors.
  8. Great work, it looks absolutely fantastic.
  9. Pictures would help define the problem....
  10. Looks very much like the Zero 125 grain competition bullet....
  11. They seem to prefer the plated primer cups over the unplated ones....I have problems with Winchester and Magtech (unplated) and none with Federal, Remington, CCI and Fiocchi. My Palfiller is just as fussy.
  12. Simple way to adjust your crimp die is to back the die off a turn or so then put a factory loaded round in the crimp station, raise the platform up all the way and screw the crimp die in until it stops, back the handle off a bit and adjust the crimp die down another 1/8th turn and lock the die up. That will get you into the ballpark. Crimp stops the projectile from coming out of the case, case tension stops it from being set back into the case.
  13. New brass and most once fired brass seems to shed a bit during the belling and crimping operations. Wet tumbled brass does it too. Check your crimp to make sure it is not a too heavy and if it is with in specs. you are GTG.
  14. I use both the MBF with colator and the MBF mini. Both work great, I have a couple of spare magazines for the mini that I use to maintain the production rate on one of my 650's.I can load 300 rounds of Super or 9mm in about 15 minutes if I start with them full and the Press full of primers. Filling them up is easy...I use the other MBF to fill the tubes !
