Thanks for the link, .X. Kinda jokin' about the milk consumption and have considered the storage baggies which would probably distort the results from the formula less. Since we drive 70 miles,...

Might also be a case of whose dies are in the 650. Hopefully, when you upgraded presses, you upgraded dies as well. ;)

Well, I'm still looking for the RCBS kit. No luck at Natchez. Since you don't alreay have the powder measure, the Hornady should work fine and what their conversion kit was made for. ;)

Well, you probably already know that 7.0 grs. exceeds the data by .1 gr., so I take it you plan to use a longer OACL where I'd probably look at 1.161"/29.5mm for the Glock. Generally, I only consider...

Mass on its own does not determine penetration. Physics doesn't come into play until mass is in motion. This is a common misconcetion. Look at the numbers in post #12. The velocity and energy ratings...

Yeah, I forgot about the plastic rear adjustables from the past as well. That would definitely be the way to go. Don't know if we still have the same import restrictions, but at one time Glock...

Well, with higher energy and mometum, comes higher recoil. No way around that. ;)

CB, looking at Graf's they show several expanders in each pic for each caliber but only a single price, so I can't tell if the price is for 1 expander or what the deal is. In any event, you need the...

Well, I just checked the price at Bud's. Their cash price is $554 for the PPQ M2 and they're not showing the HK VP9 as yet. From what I've seen posted on the forums, The VP9s aren't close in price....

If you compare any of the clones, look at their sights. A CZ 75 is like many other bushingless barrel service pistols, in battery, the muzzle is pinched in place. Like the 1911, the muzzle on the CZ...

Update!

Checked both Graf's and Midway for the RCBS conversion kit and neither have it. Graf's does have the Hornady version, though. Haven't checked Natchez and if any of you guys know of another possible...

Definitely agree with Jon and JSG. If anything, you should be using lighter charges of WST in attempt to raise POI. JSG makes a very good point about adjustable sights. Regulate them for 50' and your...

No doubt about the Sweet trigger. I found a used 3' M65 LadySmith in 98 and bought it for my wife. I did do some internal polishing, but that DA trigger is about as good as it gets. When I can steal...

So far, I haven't seen any lower restrictions for the poly-coated than 1500 FPS. Then data isn't an issue, simply load the same as cast and maybe get about 10 FPS less velocity. ;)

Good on ya', Carl. That's a great revolver period and an especially good choice for someone that doesn't or hasn't shot a great deal. I like Hogue grips, myself, but you might want to consider a...

Welcome to the forum, palerider1! You could try loading with different powders. Glocks in 9mm have pretty long throats and that seems to be the case for your .40 S&W G22. Shrinking groups is a good...

Poly-coated are less diameter dependent and shoot very cleanly. Cleaner than jacketed, IMO. Definitely worth the slightly more $ vs. cast. Check out SNS Casting. ;)
