  1. Just got my first CZ (shadow custom from CZC). I'm used to loading my 147s to 1.14 OAL for an M&P Pro. Went to reload for the CZ and it wouldn't pass the plunk test with anything longer than 1.09 using BBI 147s. Xtreme and Everglades ammo 147 both pass the plunk test with my normal load at 1.14. I have a case of BBI sitting around and would like to use them, and I've tended to get better accuracy with coated vs plated out of my other guns. Just wanted to see if anyone else is going that short in their shadows? And if so how much are backing off the powder(if any)? I'm using titegroup in these loads. Not looking to ream the barrel just yet. Thanks in advance
  2. I just stumbled on to this 9 major load that Atlanta Arms is selling. Any thoughts on 147 grain major load? What do you guys think about 147 grain having lower pressure? 9MM MAJOR 147GR JHP ELITE Bullet: 147GR Velocity: 1170 FPS ± OAL: 1.145” Grade: Elite AA Part # N9147MJR Atlanta Arms 9mm Major 147 grain was designed specifically for the competition shooter. The 147 grain bullet allows the round to reduce overall pressure while maintaining the major power factor. This projectile has been the softest shooting major competition round we have ever made. Major Power Factor: 165 http://atlantaarms.com/products/9mm-major-147gr-jhp-elite.html
  3. Hey everyone, I’m hoping someone can offer some help. I’ve been trying to develop a minor load for my G34 using VV N320. So far I’ve tried BBI 135s and 147s, and Xtreme 147 HPs. I’m using mixed brass and Winchester SPP. So far I have only been testing for accuracy, and haven’t chrono’d any of the loads. For some reason, I haven’t gotten very consistent results. The first time out at the range, I tested the Xtreme 147s and BBI 135s using N320. For the Xtremes, I also loaded one batch using CFE Pistol. I shot 5 shot groups, rested on a bag, at about 20 yards. I first shot a control group using factory new Freedom Munitions 147 gr RN. The group measured 2.23”. Here are the results for my reloads: Xtreme 147 HP, 3.4 gr N320, 1.135” - 2.39” group Xtreme 147 HP, 3.9 gr CFE, 1.135” - 2.46” group BBI 135, 3.6 gr N320, 1.130” - 1.79” group (the 5th shot wasn’t on the paper, so I think this was a fluke with the 4 shots being 1.79”) The next time out at the range I tested BBI 147s, using 3.4 gr N320, at OALs 1.120-1.160” at 0.010” increments. Same shooting setup, except this time I decided on 10 shot groups to hopefully get more conclusive results. The best group I managed was about 4” at 1.140” OAL, but the rest were in the 6-7” range. In addition to shooting groups I’ve shot all the loads for feel. I decided that I preferred the feel of the BBI 135s so I decided to focus on those. This time I loaded 10 rounds each at 3 different powder charges (3.5, 3.6, and 3.7 gr N320) and 6 OALs (1.110-1.160” in 0.010” increments). 3.5 gr - Best group was 2.14” at 1.160” OAL. Not bad at all! However, all other OALs were over 4” groups. 3.6 gr - All groups were 4” or more. 3.7 gr - All groups were 4” or more. At 1.110” OAL, the groups were horrible! Only 4 shots made it on the paper. I've shot good groups with the Xtremes, so I was starting to think my gun just didn’t like BBIs until today when I shot that one good group. I guess I could just switch over to the Xtreme 135s, but I’d like to get these BBIs to work. Maybe I can confirm the 3.5 gr at 1.160” makes PF, and just go with it?? However, I noticed another slight problem with this load. It will not pass the plunk test in my barrel. It takes slight pressure to chamber the last 0.020-0.030” and some force/wiggling to get it back out. OALs shorter than about 1.130” plunk just fine. Anyone have any ideas what could be going on?? I tried attaching pictures of the groups but the "Insert image from URL" isn't working. Thanks!
  4. I just switched from MG's 124's CMJ's with an OAL of 1.160" which worked flawlessly in my Gen3 and my son's Gen4 G34's. I switched to the MG 147 CMJ's and kept the 1.160" OAL. No issue in my Gen3 but the Gen4 has constant feeding problems. Am I running them too long??? The 124's were a rounded nose and the 147's have that small flat spot in the front (look more like a trapezoid). Sounds like some people are running MG 147's around 1.130-1.140" Thanks for the feedback
  5. What is the lightest load you have gotten away with using the stock recoil spring? I have kegs of Bullseye, BE-86, Titegroup & 231. I started with 3.6 grains of TG with a RMR plated 124 grain bullet. It shot one hole at 15 yards, but wouldn't cycle. 3.8 was better, but still had some FTF. 4.0 worked great, but was just a little less accurate. I have 100 coated Acme 147 grain bullets coming Saturday. What would you recommend trying with the powders that I have on hand?
  6. I'm experimenting with several different bullet types and vv n320 and 3n37 at the moment. Using the published VV data at this URL... http://www.lapua.com/en/products/reloading/vihtavuori-reloading-data/relodata/6/34 They use a COL of 1.142 for every load I see and with the hornady 147 XTP they seem like they are super long, ie very little ends up in the case. Anyone have any experience with these?
  7. I Ordered a handful of ammo from Freedom Munitions and was finally able to test it out. wanted to post some results with my XDm 5.25 9mm because I've found very few reviews on the 147gr 9mm remanufactured ammo. I ordered the following: - 147 9mm reman RN - 135 9mm reman HP - 147 9mm reman HP I set up the dot drill at 7 yards and 10 yards. Using the RN 147 gr 9mm remanufactured ammo I was able to keep all within the circles. I set the 1/2 size uspsa targets up at varying distances, including 22.5 yards (furthest at the indoor range, which has about 70% visibility at that distance due to the lack of lighting) and had great results. In total I shot 150 rounds with zero malfunctions. the attached picture is at 22.5 yards, all 5 shots fit in a business card, 3.5" group. Someone more proficient than I could likely keep within 2.5" to 3". I live-fire practice about 4 times a year and this is generally to set up new gear or dial in new ammo before a major match. By no means do I consider myself an accurate shooter. I'm very satisfied and will be using this ammo for local and major matches. Feel free to post any accuracy and chrono reports.
