    Scrap bucket. Is anyone really so hard up for 9mm brass that they'd segregate and save this stuff?

    SMP (St. Mark's Powder) produces for a bunch of brands, including Hodgdon, Winchester and Ramshot. SMP is owned by General Dynamics. If I was looking for load data for Ziira I'd call and ask them, I believe their phone number is 850-925-6111. ...

    You have Ziira 2 & Ziira 3? Please be as specific as possible, someone may have load data they'll share, but only if they know exactly what you have access to. Unfortunately, My googling isn't very good on this, I haven't found any shotgun loads.

    I suspect that he is in the Philippines, has limited options for powder, and for whatever reason has a bunch of n310. Hopefully he'll discover third-party proxy services used by many folks in countries with restrictive internet policy.

    JimB.. replied to a thread Regarding N 310 in Cast Boolits
    One thing worth pointing out is that at 1oz a 1gr (5%) increase in powder generates a 2,500psi (33%) increase in pressure. I'd be very cautious trying to increase velocity under a heavy load, and by very cautious I mean that I would select a...

    JimB.. replied to a thread Loading for 1911 45 in Cast Boolits
    Theory is that pressure in a bottle-necked case pushes forward on the shoulder and back on the base while the straight-walled case doesn't have this. Also, rifle tends to be higher pressure so brass holds more firmly against the chamber walls so...

    Having run a few hundred 230gr FMJ rounds first, and using SWC rather than WC, puts you firmly in the first group. You'll have to find another way to be a rebel. ;-)

    Your new 1911 has been built to tighter tolerances that those of a decade ago. Perhaps this increases accuracy and longevity, but a certain percentage of shooters find that it reduces reliability especially for the first 1,000 rounds. It is more...

    All in good fun! 360DW fits in the revolvers chambered for it, but more importantly in many 357mag handirifles without modification. I'm going to have mine reamed out to 357max at some point, but until then it is something to play with. 360DW...
