BTW, guys, I erred and would be embarrased to go back and check the number of times I've said Crimson Trace. That coming from a guy that has only used a laser on a pellet rifle! LOL. I believe it's...

Okay then, forget about the price (if possible) because that was a great score and you're gonna like it. As you may already know, I never post any 9 x 19mm +P data on the open forum, but by PM I can...

It's probably been close to a year now, but about 70 miles from here where our gun range is located, one of the gun range VPs owns a Pawn/Gunshop. When stopped in so my shooting partner could get his...

TheXDmGuy, if it were me, I think I'd look for the 124 gr. +P "Short Barrel" Gold Dots. As JSG eluded to and what I've said before, the Europeans use a higher pressure rating for the 9 x 19mm using...

Hang in there, buddy, you'll find some eventually! I can easily see you using it in target loads including the 9 x 23mm WIN. Between having and using True Blue, Silhouette and Enforcer, I'm pretty...

V, hope you can find some. I'd freeze like a popsicle if I had to shoot in sub-zero temps, LOL! BUT, that would be an excellent test for True Blue. Both Western's data and Ramshot's before that,...

KS, please don't take this as criticism in any way, but Crimson Trace actually warns against QuickLoad with the mathematical algorithims increasing in error with increases in pressure. I agree as far...

3rd post in a row?

I wanted to add a piece of advice to any of you guys contemplating the V-V 3N38 load with the 147 gr. XTP. In aticipation of making such loads myself for my 4.14" SR9, I bought the Galloway stainless...

To answer your last question first, yep, that might equate to greater felt recoil compared to faster powders that shooters prefer for managing recoil as much as possible with Major loads.

Seems like you may have some answers to your own questions. AutoComp is similar in burn rate to Silhouette. I doubt it will get you anything other than very good velocity potential in .45 ACP which...

Thanks, buddy! At least one hatchling in the nest that I look very forward to seeing mature to flight, if I'm so lucky. No swooping incidents for about the last 10 days, so maybe it was related to...

JSG, I totally agree concerning 9mm and .40 S&W. That was reinforced a short time back in VH64's thread when I looked back to find my standard pressure loads with Silhouette in 9 x 19mm had given me...

Haven't done that load with 3N38 but I've loaded, fired and tested a good number of 147 gr. XTPs loaded with 3N37 from the V-V #2 load guide and they were excellent. Need some more 147 gr. XTPs!
