    Was going to post the same, but without the 9mm. It shows status for all kinds of ammo, not
    just 9mm reloading supplies and large cap magazines.

    If you're patient, you can sometimes get some decent deals on Ebay. Get yourself an auction
    sniper tool for your phone or computer and look for lynotype or monotype lead. You can also get
    "bhn tested"...

    My Taurus FS92 likes 5 gr of power pistol over 1.130 oal, but I'm firing 124 gr lead. As far as
    OAL is concerned, the best way to find the correct OAL for the bullet you are using, is to
    remove your b...

    I have to agree with the old man. My 10/22 is a real tack driver at 100 yards. I've done a few
    tweaks though. 18 inch bull barrel, hardwood thumbhole stock. 2 1/2 lb pull trigger and a 2 x 9
    x40 scope...

    Thanks robocop, That was my job this morning.What I found, was that because of the way the
    bullet was shaped, It wasn't seating properly.Now I truly understand why you measure from the
    ogive rather th...

    Hi everyone. I reloaded some 45 acp +p small primer cases with 7 grains of power pistol, and
    230 grain lasercut lead round nose bullets. I fired 2 with apparently no difficulty, then the
    slide complet...

    Also, do you know the best way to check the OAL for a cartridge ? It should be the longest that
    will reliably feed and as close to the lands as possible. Make a couple of dummy rounds No
    powder or pri...
