HK45 update, new addition on the way home!

Well, HK45 finally made the rotation for a range trip yesterday. I loaded up one of my favorite Glock loads:

- Hornady 230 gr. FMJ
- Hodgdon Longshot 7.3 gr.
- 1.230" OAL
- WLP (I am trying to finish out this batch...I prefer CCI)

The recoil was a bit more stout with the HK45 compared to the G21 Gen4, but the gun ran fine, and there were no malfunctions. The brass didn't even make the tarp--it was ejected past the far edge! I suppose that with all the posts I've been looking at recently, the ejection patterns/BTF problems/etc. have been on my mind while I'm at the range.

I'd been shooting 9x19 (SIG Sauer M11-A1; G19 Gen4 w/APEX) before I switched over to the HK45, and the Evil Roy targets were ringing, but not like when I shot that first .45ACP round at one. Grouping was good at 15 yds. with that load I listed above, and I have to say that it was more satisfying to hear a .451" projectile smacking the targets than a .355"

Spoke with the neighborhood Class III FFL (literally, in the same neighborhood) and was told that he'd received a bunch of Beretta 92FS units which were used in a training class. Some were looking pretty roughed up, but I walked away with this gem, which doesn't look like it had been fired at all:

Overall, a pretty good day in my book.

good day indeed. Nice looking firearm. Thanks for the trip report too.

As of yesterday, I'm up to 500 rounds through my HK45.....no problems.

Nice Beretta, but I was hoping to see a pic of the HK45. Don't worry, I've got you covered.
Note the plated SWC bullets, they shoot like lasers out of the HK45. Recoil is reduced as well.

Thanks for the info, Hammerhead! I've got quite a bit of 185 gr. projectiles to get through, so I think I'll run some through it on the next trip out.

Just for you--pics of the dirty girl after going through my ammo:

I haven't cleaned anything from yesterday's trip yet, but will have that fixed later today.
