Default update

went to the range today. fired all 20 reloads and about 20 commercial rounds. this load perfomed decent. no FTF,FTE, misfires. locked the slide back and everything. i could notice the difference in recoil a lot. and i kinda liked having a little less... im thinking i may need to adjust my sights just a little. i rotated between bench and standing at 25yards. in the the end i think i may keep the load this way. maybe try 4.5 grs to see if its any different

Are you saying that your reloads had less recoil? If so, that's a good thing as I may try your formula.

Yea a noticeable difference from commericial ... I would shoot 2 or 3 rounds of pmc. Then 2 or 3 reloads. It was like night n day. At least in my opinion
