YamaLink Posted December 30, 2011 Share Posted December 30, 2011 (edited) My 9mm 1911 shoots a Bear Creek 135 RN atop 4.0 WST Fed @ 1.145 so incredibly soft & accurate. That same reload isn't so "perfect" in my new CZ SP01 Shadow. Obviously different guns, different results. Had some 125g Bear Creek in a RN and TC FP, and both had to be loaded short, approx 1.120, in the Spartan to feed. Sold the few remaining since I thought my sub-135 days were over. While the CZ is a few days old and I'm still learning the gun, I've crossed off the list at least six potential reloads all using the aforementioned BC 135 atop WST (because I have a lot of it left). And reading the CZ Shadow likes 124 I'm thinking of stopping the quest to find a "perfect" BC 135 reload for the CZ (fyi, the 147s feel too sluggish for me in both guns). Is there a moly or fmj/cmj in 124/125 with a shape that will allow me to load a little longer oal? Bear Creek's customer service is great as are their prices, but I don't mind paying for the likes of Montana Gold if the results prove their worth. Or should I give the BC 135 RN a little more time in the CZ Shadow before going 124 since 135 is a great combo of minimized felt recoil and quick slide return at around 130pf.
