Posted in thread: Do not use in firearms with ported barrels ??? on 10-10-2012 at 07:19 PM
I have Berry's and Ranier Ballistics plated bullets that I load for a Glock 20C. They shoot
great as long as you keep them slow. Once you pass a certain speed, the compensator ports will
tear a chunk ...

Guns that don't get shot very often usually get cleaned within a few days of being used. My
glock gets cleaned when it starts to look like it needs it. I've been using Remington 40x
cleaner lately. It...

My Glock likes 180 xtp's with Longshot. I had 155's running pretty consistent on Longshot, but
they were doing almost 1500 FPS from a Lone Wolf barrel. Hornady catalog shows them to be meant
for less ...

I bought some new Remington brass. My last brass was once fired factory ammo. I neck sized and
reloaded twice. After being fired three times, some of them got a little stiff going into the

I have 110's, 130's, or 150's. I was thinking of using the 150's. I'm not actually trying to
kill turkeys. I wanted to fire form some new brass for my .270. The only way I can load a
bullet to contact...

I bought most of my reloading equipment used many years ago. There was a very old book that
came with it. In this book, the author talked about seating a heavy hunting bullet backwards
over a charge o...

I think the military is as interested in the magnum primer for its tougher case (slam fire
prevention) as it is its burn rate.

Love spherical powders. They flow through a powder dump like nothing else. I also tend to go
with Hodgdon powders. I do use a magnum primer with most spherical powders. They're supposed to
be harder t...
