  1. Hello, I am brand new to reloading and looking for some recommendations and and load data to use for 147gr FP Black Bullet International (BBI) and 147gr blue bullets both RN and FP. I have Ramshot Silhouette and Accurate #7 powders, losing mixed brass with CCI 500 primers. Intended for 9mm minor for USPSA. I called BBI and asked their recommendations and he said those powders would not get best results and recommend a shotgun powder. Just looking for a little guidance if anyone has good load recipe with what I have or a powder they would recommend for those bullets. Thanks!
  2. Hey Folks, not sure if this should be here or the glock section. Long story short, I had a out of battery discharge on my Glock 34 gen 3 last week. Gun mostly survived, except the trigger and mag release broke, and my extractor shot out and was lost. I had a local shop check it out, and everything looks straight. I figured i would replace the barrel as it takes the brunt of the force (it looks fine) just to be on the safe side. I ordered a Double diamond barrel from the glock store and it arrived today. I grabbed a few of my reloads and tried to plunk test them, and they all failed. I have 2 loads and they both failed. 1: 125g RN Blue bullets 3.5 TG with OAL of 1.125 2: 127g RN Blue Bullets 3.1 TG with OAL of 1.135 using my Hornady LNL AP i do get some variance, but non of the rounds were over 1.142 and I have a few thousand of each so i would prefer to not have to break them all down. Neither of these fit. I grabbed the press and worked out the Max oal to be 1.120. That seams pretty short as the max allowable, and given human and mechanical variations, i assume i would have to load to a max of 1.175 or so I chatted with GS but they were unsure of the max OAL for that barrel and offerered to send me a replacement to see if that's any better. Has anyone else had this issue? Is this and issue? I am hoping the replacement barrel accepts my reloads. If it doesn't do you have any suggestions, can i load that short? How much would i have to adjust my load. Thank you for the help
