    The 15 lb. Wolf spring did the trick! I shot 100 rounds of my 4.3 gr / 230 CPRN reloads yesterday without a single malfunction. Going to put another 100 through it Thursday then strip & clean. Once it's clean I intend to follow wv109323's...

    Tried the new 14 lb. non-variable recoil spring today. Looks like the 15 lb. goes in tonight. I started off with 50 reloads (4.3 TiteGroup, Winchester primer & 230 CPRN projectile. Put a dab of grease top of top round in mag. First 20 rounds...

    Hope ulav8r is correct, if the new 14 lb. spring doesn't improve cycling I have a 15 lb. looking for a home.

    I was at the range yesterday. Spent a half hour trying to diagnose a cycling problem in a new pistol. Frustrated, I switched to punching holes with my.30 carbine AutoMag III. A kid ( I say kid but he was probably in his mid-30's) in the next lane...

    I marked some loaded rounds hen I first had this problem. The bullet is scuffing on something @ 11 o'clock (figuring 11 on the face of chamber). This is my first 1911 with an external extractor. I retracted the slide when it stops short of full...

    I used to use Herco & Unique for 9 mm & 45 auto. But like a few others have said, $$$ per pound convinced me to try Tite Group. It's generally 20 to 25 % less (cost per pound) and standard loads are 10 to 20 % less weight. TG meters a little...

    See the original post. The goal was to find an alternate use for the 15 1/2 pounds of 4227 I wound up with. But you bring up an interesting point, a 124 gr projectile tightly crimped might "cork it" long enough to burn better. The same max load...

    I noticed TiteGroup really clings to the plastic hopper on my Lyman 55. Unique & Herco do a little, 4227 & H110 not at all. At first I didn't care for TiteGroup because of the cling but it only takes a minute to run a plastic spatula around the...

    Grease was hit / miss. Greased the top round (5 in mag) & went 11 rounds before first 'had to thumb the slide forward'. Greased again, got three good cycles & another not so good. Out of 65 rounds had 6 failures to fully close. I had loaded the...

    I have to concede defeat on this one. Tried 15 rounds loaded to the 8.8 gr max. One almost stovepiped the spent brass. As GONRA stated, the load might work in a long barrel pistol or carbine, but from my experience it would require a barrel...
