    Personally I much prefer to load my own with a 90 gr cast boolit and 2 grains of Red Dot. Shoots to the sights, no recoil, no muzzle blast, great accuracy. No complaints here.

    5 years ago I started saving all my bottled water and pop bottles. Typically once a year we gather what we have gathered, each bottle gets rinsed, bleached, rinsed again and filled with city water. Now I have opened those older bottles,...

    I'd shoot those, and for the record I agree with Bazoo. I would be cautious if you clean those. Plastic gloves, dust mask.

    Winger Ed Post #3 nailed it IMO. Some people just have a hard time wrapping their head around certain truths. Like the fact that the 1911 designed by Mr Browning was designed to shoot through horse AND rider (with one shot) bringing both down....

    I'll third the Red Dot load. I'm filling mine with 3 grains under a 158 gr round nose. Next batch will play with 125 gr. I like to keep the recoil and muzzle blast down. Red Dot is great for that IMO.

    This is your chance to go from "Being mentored" to "Becoming a mentor" and also a chance to honor the memory of your lost friend. If it was me, if money was involved at all, it would be dimes for dollars. Listen to your heart, and follow it.
