CFE Pistol & Xtreme 180s


PKT1106

Recommended Posts

I was able to get out today with some CFE loads I made up for testing. Made 20 of each charge, but some did not register on the chrono. There were strong wind gusts that may have moved the chrono a little bit and not pick up a shot here and there.

The 5.7gr charge was VERY soft for a major PF. The numbers get better from a standard deviation standpoint as we get into the 5.9-6.0gr charges, but they were smokey, even with plated bullets. The 5.7gr load cycled my Edge just fine with a 12# recoil spring.

I can't comment on how clean it was because I did not have a cleaning kit with me and I proceeded to do a practice session with 400 rounds of my WST load.

Pretty decent accuracy for my Edge at 7yds (where I put the target for chrono).

I am going to load up more at 5.7gr and try them at speed for a match.
