  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 i
  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.
  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 us
  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 t
