    The 2 original magazines have improved just through use. One is fully recovered. While awaiting the new mags from Ruger I loaded 100 with CCI primers & was careful to stay within the brass parameters voiced by P Flados. Of these I shot 6 strings (8...

    That photo is misleading (the angle taken). The OAL is 1.090. I've never tried anything longer then 1.1. I know everyone is trying to help & I certainly appreciate everything. The bullet is not against the rifling. The factory bbl. is...

    Bob, Thanks for your reply & I appreciate you sharing your 1911 expertise. Please forgive me not answering sooner.....yard work interfered. I should apologize for the phrase "out of battery". "Not fully in battery" would have been more accurate...

    I think you are 100% correct & I think the magazine is the root of the problem. Today I loaded only 5 instead of 7 & shot 25 rounds without a hitch...........I cheated & used Fed.#100 primers. Regards, Henry

    Bob, In my case a high primer is not the problem. In fact I had to regroup & take extra care in seating them.....I was applying too much pressure & feared some were too low (the WSPs have a different feel from the Fed. #150s that I've been seating...

    Robertbank, No difference in recoil or sound. Charlie b's explanation makes sense. Charlie b, Thanks for the explanation of the primer appearance + the magazine info. Henry

    Photo #1 is a top view of the Officer model magazine. Note the adapter @ the inner rear wall that I assume serves to reduce the inside length. Also note grooves on both sides that I assume are to reduce the width to accommodate the 9mm. I notice...

    Bob, My OALs in my last post are missing a zero. The correct AOLs are: #1 =1.030 #2 =1.045 #3 =1.075 I corrected my earlier posting.

    P Flados, I jumped the gun & ordered the Arsenal 358-124-TC yesterday (I couldn't believe the $80.00 price for a 5 cav.: a good value). I told them I want the boolits to drop @ .358 with COWW. I also ordered a Star die from Lathesmith &...

    P Flados, I really appreciate your information. My friend says his Lee 120TC boolits from COWWs size to .357 & the sizing is uniform (all sides), so from your info I deduct that the boolit size from the Lee 120TC could vary. Considering this...
