I told you I was embarrassed............. Shortest answer is that I was rushing to test the loads before sun got too low to get consistent readings on the chrono. I noticed the recoil was "stout" but didn't take time to even look at the velocities. Just hurry and shoot till Kimber came apart in my hand. Later I found out my RCBS powder scale had switched from grains to grams which are a 15 to 1 ratio and didn't notice the decimal was off by one space so what I thought was 8.5 grains was really .85 grams which is about 13 grains. BOOM! A comedy of errors that could have been very ugly. See why I'm embarrassed........ but very impressed with the quality of those 2 guns. First major screw-up in 37 years of reloading.

Did you ask the guy why he's selling the 14.45 Limited?

Would you believe him if he did?

He said he just needs the money for home improvements which I believe because I met him at his house and he was redoing his whole backyard. I don't think I'll give him a grand though. It's nice but not brand new nice. :-)
