Major +1 on that, and I confess I didn't start using it seriously until a previous suggestion from you here. It's helped me on numerous subjects, from pistol-shooting to fire-suppression systems (flame suppression, not artillery suppression), and all kinds of topics.

The bottom two are in 300 Blackout...

..and the single shot AAC Handirifle/Silencerco 40Osprey combo...

..is really quiet with 220gr subsonics!


Hopefully things will slow down a little soon...

..& you are more than welcome to feel the love of the little AAC!

Some more Appleseed instructing. I think there were 46 shooters at the beginning of the day.

I loaned my 10/22 to somebody for the afternoon. When they opted out of shooting the final Redcoat I jumped in there to get a lucky-13 actual shots downrange. The sling wasn't fitted to me quite right and they were firing as I started so, well, I have a lot of excuses, but the point is one of those bastard redcoats got away

Saturday

Helped a CoFF build a chicken coop..

..& afterwards helped count out the nearly 2k of Federal 5.56 green-tip I scored for him. Discussed NV capable optics upgrades for his new SIG 516, played with a SIG 716 I brought along & other toys.

Did some night suppressed shooting with him & his wife afterwards.

Discussed what was needed for baking quality bread from scratch & laid some of the groundwork needed for a "group buy of wheat".

Scored for a former coworker some fairly hard to get high capacity magazines.

Got another CoFF into her 1st AR!

Not really S&P related, but I finally got motivated to build a custom precision .308 rifle. I am building it off a S/A Savage action. This is going to be custom down to the nuts and bolts. At this time, everything's ordered and some of it is here. Just waiting on a few last items and then off to the gunsmith.

Ran my first batch of 9mm reloads. Been reloading a long time (since Reagan's first term actually), but never bothered with 9mm until now; just had the dies on hand and been saving the brass for a few years now.

124-grain plated truncated-cone, over 4.1 of titegroup. Hope to get to the range tomorrow or next day to try them out. Not looking for them to be carry ammo or high-precision loads; just something to bang plates with out to 25 yards or so.

Went shooting with a former co-worker & his son-in-law.
Their 1st time shooting suppressed. A while back....he asked me to keep watch for an AR that could do double duty hunting medium sized game.
He ended up with this like new package from a mutual friend this morning..

...his 1st AR.......a gas-piston SIG 716 (7.62x51mm)

Survival/Preparedness Forum

Came with 500rds of Federal 168 gr OTM...

..nice double rifle backpack, 7 Pmags, Leupold 6.5x20, etc

Nice Score!

Let me know how that load works out for you. I have done all my 9mm loading with 115s, but I am a huge fan of titegroup. I need to get my press running again.

Didn't have my chrono in the truck, but I ran a hundred of them yesterday thru three different guns with no problems. Ran thru a Smith M&P, Glock 19, and Kahr CM9 all fine, with the exception of failing to lock the slide on the CM9 one time; which the CM9 is occasionally prone to do anyway.

Didn't have my chrono, but I did alternate some in the mags with factory stuff and couldn't tell any noticeable difference at all between felt recoil between the two. Not a scientific test, but all I could do at the time; and so far so good.

One thing about truncated-cone bullets is that you usually want to load them toward the shorter side of the allowable range; shorter than a roundnose fmj of the same weight would be. And if you use plated like these are, be mindful of not overcrimping, as it can damage the plating and cause serious accuracy issues.

I traded 6 boxes of 9mm for some cheap Rosi 38 special revolver and a box of 50 38 special.
I thought I had a line on some more 9mm but that didn't pan out so now I wonder if i'm going to miss that 300 rounds I traded.
I have also only been able to find one box of 38 special locally.
So now I have a revolver and only 100 rounds for it and have not been able to shoot it as I don't know when I will find some more ammo.
I'm still good on 9mm but will not be able to shoot like I was if I can't find a place to replenish them.
I had also helped a few friends out with some 9mm and some .22LR which shortened me too on the 9mm.
I have to stop being so nice to people that don't see a need to stock up a little till it is too late.

Casted about 350 130gr 9mm round nose projectiles the other day and set around loading a hundred rounds today. I like the Power Pistol powder as it is (was) inexpensive to buy and has pretty good power ie I have to use less than the lowest value listed in the Lee book to feel close to the same power (or recoil) as the store bought rounds. These loads/rounds are working great through our Beretta 92s, our Glocks (with stainless barrels), the wifes Kimber and our 995 carbines.

Thanks for the feedback! Are you using Berrys plated? What OAL did you load at (as you said to load to the shorter sideof the allowable). I think you have inspired me to get the press up and running again this weekend. I had not set it back up after I moved.

No leading issues there? I use a lot of plain old cast bullets in .38, .45acp and .45lc; but went with plated in 9mm's due to potential lead buildup concerns, and also due to some (minor) use in glocks with factory barrels.

On the oal, I'd have to double check, but iirc right at 1.110 - 1.115 (don't hold me to that).

This batch was X-treme bullets 124 plated TC. Do have a thousand Berry's 124 plated TC on order from dillon, but don't know when they'll ship. Hopefully soon, as I've only got about 400 left on hand.

X-treme: http://www.xtremebullets.com/category-s/9666.htm

Berry's at Dillon: https://www.dillonprecision.com/#/co...BulletsBullets

The x-tremes are fine up close for drills & such, but shooting past a hundred yards or so, they're pretty erratic. The Berry's are hollow-based, making them longer oal for the same bullet weight; and the extra length (bearing surface) may(?) make for better bullet stabilization and potentially better medium- to long-range accuracy. Not a critical thing really, just figured I'd experiment with them since they're roughly the same price as the x-tremes.

Not when you use the bullet lube correctly, but I always fire a couple of jacketed rounds through when finished just to make sure. My friends Sig 226 likes these rounds a lot but he noticed that they lead up a lot through that gun. Must be the type of rifling?
We have the Wolf barrel for the G26 and the Fire Dragon for the G19, we have no leading issues with those. Still need to acquire a stainless barrel for the G17.

I like the Xtreme Plated brand projectiles alright but the Barry's seem better to me, I wondered why so I measured and weighed a whole box of each and the Barry's were more consistently made height, weight and width wise.
Can't seem to score a box of either lately tho.

Two days before casting a few rounds my tire shop buddy hooked me up with a 5 gallon bucket of spent wheel weights. I trade him a couple of boxes of 9mm reloaded rounds for his scrap lead = everyone is happy...

Ordered a 5 cavity, .310, flat nose w/.18 meplat, gas check, 235gr (wheel weights) mold for subsonics with the .300 Blk..

..and got on the list for a 4 cavity, .311 , gas check, hollow point 130gr mold for supersonics.

Working out a deal with a friend to cast 10k of each!

But...if the long overdue small rifle primers do not make it in..

..I may have to use some of my emergency stock!


Installed the Ergo Gapper on the new Bushmaster....much better now!


Received the new Nikon 2x7 P-300 SuperSub Scope & installed it on the AAC 300 Blk Handirifle.
