    Wow, I never had that good of luck or killing power with any shot capsules I used in the 38 Special, 357 Magnum, 44 Magnum, and 45 Colt... I have killed a couple of rabbits at 5 yards or a tad farther with the 45 Colt, but rabbits have pretty...

    Yea, 4 to a sheet might not be too good. Trying to keep them on the paper when the targets are not in the center of the sheet might get a bit discouraging! 90% of these ladies, and some of the guys, have really never done much "serious" or for...

    Yep, went to that site and there is a very good selection. The ones that aren't printable, I just copied the image and pasted it on a legal size piece of paper. Then by clicking on the target, you can make it a bit bigger. I made it fit the width...

    My wife is going to a handgun training session and they will shoot at NRA handgun targets at the end of the classroom training. I understand they are going to shoot 5, 7, & 15(?) yards... She has been shooting a few rounds daily and is getting...

    OP here… Just got back from my range with some 240 XTP MAG results. As mentioned, this was done just to break the monotony of the winter days, plus I have never shoot jacketed bullets from this particular Blackhawk—thousands and thousands of...

    Thanks 762 shooter... That appears to be the ticket... I was planning on doing a bit of "hot-rodding" with my Blackhawk. I don't do this often, or mostly not at all, but sometimes Winter demands a bit of new not-boring activities to pass the...

    Sometime back in years there was an article written in Handloader about 3 pressure levels for loading the 45 Colt… I have looked at all the indexes I have for the past 30 years and I simply cannot find it. I am looking under the Handgun sections...

    BCB replied to a thread Scot 453... in Canister & Surplus Powder
    Well, I used HP-38 data and fire a few rounds (9mm Luger) with the 115 HAP bullet from Hornady using 4.2 grains of HP-38, Scot 453, and Titegroup… The chrony showed 1017 fps from the 453 and 946 fps from the HP-38 and 1004 fps for the TiteGroup…...

    BCB replied to a thread Scot 453... in Canister & Surplus Powder
    I did the search and it appears to be in the HP-38 burn range. I know it's a fast one... Guess I'll start with HP-38 on the low end and do some chronograph work. Maybe be able to get a better idea... I have 4 pounds of it and if it will work...

    At least 15 years ago, a reloading buddy had a dozen canisters of this Scot 453 powder for sale—I purchased 4 of them for $7.00/pound according to a piece of tape I attached to the container and wrote the amount on it… I never used any of it and...

    I took No 1's advice although I might have gone about it a bit differently than he suggested… I first went and cleared all my history and that got rid of all the cookies as I checked that box that is offered under clearing history… I then went...
