I was settled in happily watching Michigan State beating up on Northwestern when my phone rang. I answered and on the other end was one of my gun nut friends. He wanted to know what i was doing. I told him, "watching the game." He said why dont you gather your gear and head out and meet them at the range. I said, "sure, why not." I am SO glad i did!! The great news was that my one bud had bought a S&W 500 at the gun show earlier today. I had never fired one and couldnt wait to touch off the hand cannon! I think the video clip says it all. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qLiSmEKE60]Me, Smith 500 - YouTube[/ame] 500 Flash.... S&W 500 results.... We experienced a phenomenon I had never heard of. A revolver doubling!! [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KzZ_2nnrBQ]Allgone, Smith 500 - YouTube[/ame] [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MR6D2ZeAmjo]Keller, Smith 500 - YouTube[/ame] I noticed after viewing the videos, the 2 that shot the gun in single action had the doubles. The two of us that shot it in double action didnt have any issues. Anybody else ever heard of a REVOLVER doubling!?!? After the guys left i was able to get in some serious "ME" time with the guns. I think i have found a new pet load for the 686. I loaded up some rounds with IMR 4227 for the .357 in an attempt to "just burn it up". It turns out i was getting even better results (tighter groups) with the IMR than i had gotten with the 2400. WHO KNEW!! Also ran some more of my own loads thru the 1911 and got even more comfortable with them. I really like the results i am getting. Spent some serious time with the PF-9 and got a little more comfortable with it. A couple cool "shots" of the PF-9 in action... I even ran some rounds i made up for the .44mag. with the IMR 4227 and can say i got similar results with that load as i am getting with the 2400. Might even be getting a few FPS better. Dunno for sure, can only guess without a chrono and go from the data in the load book. A couple other cool "shots" from the 686.
