I have always done so in my carry guns. Hardball and hollow point.

Never had a problem, even in the one Rock Island pistol I own. Just lucky I guess?

Or do you like to keep them neat and all the same?

Looks like this thread going towards the 10,000 mark.... and I just got here......
I used to do that with my RIA. My Judge load was Super X 000-Federal 000-Federal 000-Speer GDHP-Speer GDHP.

Wide spread to no spread. That way I could shoot from the draw & gain accuracy as I gain acquisition.

Mixing different weight bullets is detrimental to accuracy shooting.

It is a good possibility if shooting over 25 yds.

In a carry weapon, most "organic" targets are going to be between 1-12 yds. and there is very little, to no loss of accuracy. YMMV

So, is that molasses, then, if it comes from sugar cane?

I kept getting awakened with bad leg cramps all day while I tried to sleep. Once I actually had to get up to walk it off. So not only did I not sleep very well, but I now have sore leg muscles from the cramping.

Ok people, once again your opinions matter. A guy wants to trade his Winchester 94 for my SR9c. I don't know any more detail as of yet. What do y'all think?
