    For the 10 mm, if full power loads with heavy bullets is your goal.. there are a few powders I

    Fair enough.. though you have to admit it is likely more possible today than it was back in
    Elmer's Day. He was working with the 44 special trying to develop the 44 magnum. He was using N

    If you don't reload then It's likely not for you.I've a bit of experience in this vein. I use a
    heavily modified P16 for Action shooting, the only original parts are the barrel, slide, frame,
    and grip...

    Why bother changing calibers at all.. just put a heavier recoil spring in the P16, and load
    your 40's as long as a 10 mm and work up your loads to match 10 mm performance. The gun can
    handle bullets u...

  • Posted in thread: Do U Trim Handgun Brass? on 02-26-2010 at 04:57 PM
    The only brass I ever trim is brass that comes out of my revolvers.. and that is only in 357
    magnum and 10 mm since those are the calibers of the revolvers.. for 38 spl and 40 S&W, I never
    trim anythi...

    I have two of them, and older 610 classic which is the -2 model with the non-fluted cylinder
    and 6.5" barrel. I have a newer -3 model that is the same as the -2 model except now it has a
    fluted cylind...

    There has been debate about SxS and O/U for years. It comes down to preference and balance. The
    main argument I always heard was that the SxS pulls left and right whereas the OU just pushes
    you back.....

    Also realize that once the AW ban ended in 2004, there are a LOT more people purchasing AR type
    rifles now than could during the 10 year period at that time. Increased demand from the public
    means sup...

  • Posted in thread: hollow tip bullets on 12-29-2007 at 12:06 AM
    currently there is no substitute for .22 lr ammo, but I suspect we might see them come up with
    maybe a tin bullet, tin is light and might be heavy enough to make a 22 out of. All copper
    bullets like b...
