  • Posted in thread: light vs. heavy bullets in snub-nose .357? on 03-24-2017 at 06:41 PM
    Trying to develop some SD loads for a light weight .357 snub-nose revolver. True .357 loads are
    just too brutal to shoot and +P are not powerful enough. Have tried 125 gr. @ 1050-1070 fps and
    158 gr.@...

  • Posted in thread: fast/ slow powders - effect on felt recoil on 03-22-2017 at 07:39 PM
    A question to those who might know: If I were to load a cartridge with say a 158 gr. .357
    dia.bullet with a fast burning powder like Bullseye to produce 1000 fps, would the felt recoil
    be the same as ...

  • Posted in thread: after market take down pin for LCP on 09-30-2015 at 12:42 AM
    Does anybody have any experience with the replacement take down pin for a LCP? Are they any
    stronger than factory pins? I ask because I have sheared the head off the Ruger factory pins
    using some robu...

    bluegrasscotty, have to disagree. A Simmons .22 mag scope will cost under $50.00 and is far
    from a "BB" gun scope. Images are bright , reticle is clearly defined and will return to zero
    after " boxing...

  • Posted in thread: Hornady FTX vs Win PDX1 .22 mag on 09-15-2012 at 12:29 AM
    I carry a NAA Black widow just about all the time and am happy with the Hornady FTX. However,
    I'm wondering if anybody has done any velocity or penetration testing with the new 40 gr. ( was
    45 gr.) Wi...

    Put a Simmons 3x9x32 22 Mag. scope on my 10/22 and works fine. The scope was free after
    returning to Simmons a 15 year old scope that was mounted on a 45/70 and after a couple of
    hundred shots would n...

  • Posted in thread: Used .22lr brass use on 08-12-2012 at 03:45 PM
    Do you mean he made brass bullets? And are you talking for 22-250, .222, .223. Stuff like that?
    If so, how did he do it?rick1976: He used the cases for jackets into which he swaged lead wire.
    From wha...

  • Posted in thread: Winchester PDX1 .22 mag ammo? on 08-11-2012 at 09:48 PM
    Have any board members chronographed the newly released Win. 40 gr. (not 45 gr. as advertised)
    PDX1 .22 Mag ammo? I'm interested in comparisons to Hornady 45 gr. flex tip out of a 2"
    barrel.Thanks in ...

    New an old timer who fashioned 50 gr. bullets for his .22 rifles from spent . LR cases. Worked
    great if velocity was held to a moderate level. dgang

  • Posted in thread: velocity of Double Tap .380 ammo? on 05-07-2012 at 06:20 PM
    Recently bought some 95 gr. JHP Double Tap ammo for my LCP, (Buffalo Bore just a little too
    much for the LCP) . Double Tap claims 975 fps from a 2.5" barrel. Have not been able to run it
    through a chr...

I shoot, therefore I am.
