    Duke is right, 5.7 brass does not require near as many steps to become a jacket. The time savings is well worth the cost of the brass. And the bullets I make with 5.7 brass weight very close to 165 grains with no lead exposed.

    I am making 30 cal bullets from 9mm brass, with BTSniper dies. The weights with no exposed lead is from 125- 135 grains. I have not tested their minute of angle potential, instead burning them up practicing ambidextrous standing and, rapid fire...

    I know nothing of any testing, but changing the bullet weight might cause problems with the carbine's operating system.

    Congratulations! I would like to have one. But for now just have to be glad for someone else who went ahead and bought one.

    Nice rifle, it looks almost like a stealth fighter. Getting expansion at 800 feet per second is going to require very soft bullets with big holed, thin walled hollow points. I do not have a 9mm/.357 air rifle but lust after one. The semi wad...
