    The 200 gr Lee rnfp at 1.175, and 230 TC at 1.185

    Both these function through my handguns and the carbine, 230 gr, 5.5 w231 , I seated just about even with start of the TC ogive, from 4.5 barrel 830fps and same load in carbine right at 1000fps
    Hell, I was there!

    Thank you swheeler.
    I seated the 230tc the same as you did and the 200rf shorter at 1.165 to just cocer the crimp groove. I may have under powered them with HP-38 as i loaded five at 4.5 grains and five at 5.0 grains. I wanted to start low and it seems like a lot of bullet in the case. I will find out tomorrow in any event. Thanks again.

    I've bought a RedBall 20 rd magazine and so far has worked flawless with everything I've thrown at it. I finished off 8 pounder of W231(approx 10k 45 auto) and have started loading Titegroup, will see how a pound of it does. Enjoy that carbine!

    I made it to the range this morning to shoot the Hi-point for the first time. I set a target up at 50 feet and had my chronograph. I started out with 10 rounds of Speer Lawman 230 grain ammo and shot well with no issues. I actually like the sights it came with.
    Now to try my hand loads! All 40 rounds shot great with no issues. No leading and locked the bolt back on final shot. I'm pleased with my first outing with this fun little carbine.
    I will post the chronograph numbers tomorrow after i get some sleep. Thanks everyone for you help.

    Left bullseye all the hand loads plus 10 rounds of the Speer Lawman ammo. Was only 50 feet and had my front hand rested. I'm happy with that for the first time out with it.

    I have had my High Point 45 acp carbine two years now been quite happy with it . I find I get about the same speed from ammo as from my 5" 1911 but much tighter groups. I also found a lot of ammo I loaded without sizing the bullets would not function in 1911 but functioned and shot well in the carbine.
    My go to load for most cast bullets in 45 acp is 5 grains Red Dot it just seems to work well.
    When I think back on all the **** I learned in high school it's a wonder I can think at all ! And then my lack of education hasn't hurt me none I can read the writing on the wall.

    Any body have a 10mm Hi Point? Any problems? Cast boolits? Kick? Just thinking out loud. Thanks

    Nice shooting! And i have a 10mm hi-point carbine. No problems. Not much kick at all. Only thing i did not like. The cheek pad was sticky. I got it off. Forget what i used though. One tip for everyone who got them. If you put and optic on. Put some blue loctite on the rail thread screws. Do one screw at a time. I had one of the plates that the screws go into fall off on the inside of the gun. There not the easiest carbines to take apart. 10 mm in pic.

    I stripped one down once . watch for parts falling off but was easy enough to put back together , they do seem to feed and fire almost anything , and are pretty fun to shoot .

    I think that 10mm would make a dandy little brush gun for piggies and corn crunchers.

    The 10mm and 9mm ones. You don't have to compensate to much for 100 yard shots at a 50 yard zero. There with in minute of 12 oz can at both ranges with 115 grain and 180 grain hard cast coated lead. I think the 10mm would do well with hogs. I ran 180 grain BHN 18 boolets through 6 2 inch planks. Loaded with 11 grains of blue dot. Im not sure what corn crunchers are.

    Using my highly accurate SWAG method, I think corn crunchers are about the same as 3- 2 inch planks. So, yer good to go.

Mark the dowel again at the muzzle. Pull out the dowel and measure the the distance between the two marks on the dowel. That is your cartridge OAL. This will change if you change to a boolit with a different olgive shape. You may want to reduce this length by a few thousandths, but there are different opinions on that.
    That's a pretty good idea on measuring for your guns. I will definitely try that trick.
