    I put lots of holes in lots of IPSC targets every week, sometimes the whole weekend filled with shooting. The targets are vaguely a squared off human upper torso and head. We shoot a lot of steel of various kinds too and its pretty common to cstch...

    Hard to find is more like it at least with standard small pistol primers, even the standard Gold Medal Match primers. Federals are excellent primers but they have been hard to get. Federals are different in that they use a softer primer cups in...

    One of my competitor buddies I mentioned above pretty much just loads 9mm and .40S&W on his LnL using Autocomp for both which being a fine grain powder, it meters pretty well. He tried Vectan AO in it and it gave him a lot of trouble. Lots of...

    Good to know, thanks! For this reason amongst others, every toolhead for my Dillon has an RCBS Lock-out die in it. It doesn't mean you don't need to pay attention but should something slip past your vigilant watch of the operation the die will lock...

    I've yet to do it but a .38/.357 duplex round ball load is supposed to work pretty good and fun to shoot! I have however came up with a mouse fart round ball load for .380 which is fun to shoot! I tried both a sized .360 RB and unsized, alox'ed and...

    On my case formed brass, I found it pretty easy to chuck it up gently in the drill press and with the belt set up for speed to turn the original case head marks right off. Don't have to go crazy with it and its not at all enough to hurt case...

    My vote would be a plug of mud. Still, that is some talent, like the kind of talent it takes to bend a pry bar in a sand box!

    I can tell you from experience that Silhouette (Winchester Action Pistol), True Blue, VV 3N38, Autocomp, W572 and maybe a couple I'm forgetting, are all just a big blast of noise and some smoke from the comp. I Also tested HS6 which did produce a...

    Hence my 1st comment on making Major PF with flamey Power Pistol powder. Been there & done it but I will leave the loading data for the perspective user to figure out. The other comment was setting the record straight as to our sport as you...

    With exception of a few published loads, pretty much anyone running 9mm Major power factor is loading the cartridge beyond SAAMI specs. Some of those loads are encroaching on rifle chamber pressures but pretty much all of the guns shooting 9 major...

    You can make Major PF with Power Pistol, I have done it and its actually a decent round to be honest. The higher the charge, the more efficiently it seems to burn and reduced flash occurs. My M&P Open Division gun has a custom titanium 3-port comp...

    I love both for the same reasons. The Dillon covers my competition ammo needs and i don't feel like a slave to the task running it for 30min to an hour and I have match ammo covered for a few weeks. It allows me a lot of competition shooting without...

    I have run Silhouette (Winchester Action Pistol) through mine leak free. Silhouette is very fine stuff too. I found on mine that initially the drum wasn't tight enough even though it felt tight. The screw is cutting threads into the drum as it goes...

    Disgruntled or not, that would be a very, very poor decision. I'm sure that could be construed as terrorism or attempted manslaugher, etc, etc. I wouldn't dare aim a laserpointer at a plane none the less a firearm. Other way to go after some hot...

    I use about 1 tsp to 1.5 tsp of Lemi and about a Tbsp of car wash & wax soap with about 2gal +- hot water to do 2-3K of 9mm with about 5lb of pins. I get perfectly acceptably clean brass in 45min and like new shine with 60-90min. I do have a large...

    All of mine hold the specified amount of rounds right from the box, no mods but the last one is snug. The Maglula is the best thing since sliced bread. I end up loading lots of mags over and over as a competitive shooter. Most of those have a...

    My 1st smelter setup was the bottom half of an R-134a tank that i ran off a forced air charcoal burner. Not an optimal setup by any means but it worked just fine and the pot was in no way showing any signs of giving up. Its probably about 16ga....
