Prior to taking it to the...

I understand the logic of the +P hardcast round. Now - what to do about (seemingly) every manufacturer's prohibition against +P .380 auto ammo?

I do not ask that question to start a war, but...

Very helpful reminder of who owns whom. The Federal round is available in 55 and 62 gr, and the SOST is a 62 grain round, so that was the size I was looking for. Trying to assemble the poor man's...

Federal Tactical Bonded / SOST Reloads

I would like to build .223 rounds that mimic the 62 gr Federal Tactical Bonded .223 or SOST 5.56. I thought this could be built using the Speer Trophy Bonded Bear Claw, but cannot find it in 62...

Ruger GP 100

A GP100 in .357 Magnum with a 4.2 inch barrel was the first firearm my wife and I bought together, for home defense. DA. Built like a bank vault. Reliable. Just the right weight for the caliber. ...

Reduced Load

I use Berry's in a reduced load that gives my .40 the same power factor as a 9mm. Berry's 165gr FP over 4.1gr of TightGroup.

Thanks for the detailed clarification an the analogy to the Wylde chamber. As an engineer, I can appreciate the differences that small details can create, which is why my 5.56 has a Wylde chamber.

If You Re-load

If you re-load, my answer is to de-rate my .40's to a 9mm power factor for purposes of timing and training for multiple targets. It uses a bit less powder and beats up my wrist and elbows somewhat...

6.8 SPC Ammo Differences?

Thanks

Thanks for the 100 yd zero values. It looks like a 200 yd zero would give a bullet path that passed thru -1.6 at the muzzle, to +2.2 at 100 yd, to 0 at 200 yd. Does that match numbers you've seen?
