That is fun for sure. Just for chidts and giggles I used a single action revolver in one of the matches last time. Borrowed it from a buddy shooting the event. That was a kick in the pants.. No, I didn't win that one. Ha ha.. and yes, the pins do get heavy. We keep using the pins from the rimfire event and mid bore event and use them for our final big bores, where the pins are set at the front edge of the table. It takes a good hit to take them off the table with 1 shot per pin. A lot of times they just lay there and spin on the table and present us with difficult shots. This is where you have to force yourself to slow down a bit and focus on making the shot count... If you did it for 10 years, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Its like slowing down to go faster....

I hope nothing is wrong with it. A couple weeks ago it was the only thing on the shelf at Sportsman's and I grabbed a couple pounds.

I have not loaded with it yet. But all the data looks very promising. I have been cleaning out some old inventory, Universal & HS-6. But I am looking forward to trying CFE Pistol and a couple pounds of Longshot I found last week.

The real beauty in loading for the 9mm, is you can use a lot of different powders. As these guys have named off quite a few that work very well.

Probably nothing, but most of us have already found something we like and have enough not to have worried about trying something "new". A 4 pounder of Universal lasts a long time.

That’s the truth. I picked up 16 lbs. of Red Dot at a fundraiser in about 05 for 40 bucks. At 3.5 - 5 grains I’ve only went through 12 lbs.

I just picked up 4 pounds of Win 572, it's going to be my favorite by default. Any suggestions on bullet weights for hotter loads? Can't seem to get the Hodgdon site to work today...

For sure.

And, in today's availability climate, you may be shooting the powder you can find. It's just a good thing a bunch of different powders do work, some better than others.

I like Universal. It is great powder. Works very well in the 40 and 45 too..

I am finding that I am going thru old powder that I have had for years and loading it up just because I don't want to pay the crazy prices some people are wanting for powder now. Just finished off a can of Bulleye that has a price of $11.97 on the can. That old soldier was emptied out last week. I have a can of about that same time period of Universal that is next on the hit list.

Have a lot of different powders for fun and practice but kind of partial to AA7 for defense rounds.

There are vids out there showing the very low flash of AA7.

Doesn't look like 400 rounds laying there. I kept thinking I wished I had a progressive. I was only able to load 385 in an hour on my single stage..


And I’ll see your 600 and raise you 500+. 9mm, 6.4 gr PowerPistol, 124 gr Gold Dots. On a Rockchucker.

For pistols I’ve hoarded a little Bullseye and a bit of PowerPistol & Blue Dot. 38 Special, 9mm, .357, .40, and 44 RemMag. Don’t feel lacking. Though a little AA9 and H110 finds it’s way on the bench for a Big Bang.

Damn, you are ambitious. I like your reloading set-up. Looks similar to mine.. You and I are the only ones here that use our press mounted priming stations. I like using mine, as I can feel the primer seat consistently every time.

I just use black powder. That way I can run after the shot and they don't know where I went..

Actually my ambition waned a bit looking at all the components I’d accumulated without any loading. I’m on a roll now. And yeah I like the press mounted primer. Saves an extra step. Size & charge, then flare and reprime while the case is still in the press. I can feel how the primer seats as well, though some say they can’t. To each his own I suppose. One good thing about loading in quantity but you get to spot somebody a few if they’re low on ammo or out. I also loaded some .40, .357 and .44 in my marathon. Took a box of all 4 to my daughter’s future father-in-law this past weekend. He grinned.
