    I own Lyman WC and SWC molds (cant remember exact numbers) but I think that Lee 358-158-RF is little bit more accurate so I've been using those lately. These also make great sub 9mm rounds provided you have a handgun that will chamber .357 rounds....

    I got lucky one day and found 3 pigs for $0.85/lb so i bought all 3 from my local scrap yard. I got some other good quality soft lead and tin from them too but I need more so I'll have to go see what they got in the bin. Winter reload used up over...

    I own Taurus PT111 G2 Pro and its ok but you get what you pay for. I think for the price its an ok buy but its not on the same level as the rest of the major manufacturers. It does go bang every time and its accurate but trigger break is so far...

    My FNX45 shoots FMJs and PCed boolits with no issues and you cant beat 15 rounds of 45acp but it is a large pistol so its not for everyone. I would also consider Sig p220/227 or Walther PPQ in 45. Both very good 45s. If you are considering 1911 I...

    For 9mm I use 4.2gr of HP38/W231 or 4gr of Tite Group. These are not very hot loads though. I've shot 4.4gr of HP38 but I didnt see any gains from that and since 9mm is my plinking round I would rather get more rounds per lb of powder. There are so...

    No 9 is really for magnum rounds but it does work well in 300 Blackout too if you have one of those uppers. If you dont ..... you should get one :lol:

    Any of the new Canik TP9 series. I'm very impressed with TP9 series. Canik has better trigger then my Sig p320 (which I still love) and it costs less. As a matter of fact TP9 is basically the same gun as Walter PPQ (which is by the way nothing like...

    I tried not sizing various rounds in 9, 45acp and 300AAC. There are many members here that dont size their bullets without any issues. There are no accuracy issues as far as I can tell but without sizing you might have problems seating these bullets...

    marek313 replied to a thread Indoor range fees? in Our Town
    Same here as long as nobody is waiting I've shot 2 hours and paid for 1. I prefer to shoot outside and since local PD just closed up our sand pit I signed up to local outdoor range which was $250/year. Only range that allows reloads go figure but...

    I loaded as a fun experiment 164gr (158gr Lee 358-158-RN + PC) in 9mm. I can only shoot that out of my sig p320 as it wont chamber in any other 9 but its a fun subsonic load. I use 3.5gr of HP38/W231 in that load. I was considering using TG but...

    marek313 replied to a thread Lee TL 356-124-2R in Cast Boolits
    Most of the time I use HP38/W231 to load 9mm but I've used other powders including TG. I cast 125gr plus PC and they end up being about 130gr total. I load 4.2gr of HP38/W231 or 4gr of TG. I dont think 4gr of TG is hot and I would think that many...

    W296 from my understanding is the same powder as H110 so dont waste yout time if you already have H110. Same thing with HP38 and W231, same powder. H110 works fine for me under Lee 312-155 so it should work fine for you too. You'll just have to...

    Get the Lee 4-20. Even 20lbs isnt that much when your casting large boolits.
