That stuff is greasy. Have you tried CCI standard velocity?

Been seriously thinking about picking up a Browning 1911-380 for Karen to use. A double stack 9 is to big for her hands. A single stack one kicks to hard for her. I'm hoping the 85% scale 1911 in 380 will work for her...

On that scale and caliber, I have a Sig P230. I prefer Sig's no safety/decocker SA/DA to the 1911 pattern.
I don't feel as safe with a 'cocked and locked' carry gun.

It isn't supposed to be a carry gun. Just a shooter for someone who is recoil sensitive with very small hands. I think I'm going to go ahead a get a Browning 1911-22 and see if she likes it. If so we'll step up to the 380.

Yes it is and yes, but I can deal with the greasiness in exchange for those groups at that price point. I've found other stuff that shoots better in that gun, but it costs considerably more.

Oh, well, carry on. Smile

How did the new AR run?

I'm pleased. Smile
I sighted the A2 iron sights at 25 yds. to get the windage roughed in, shooting from the bench with a rolled up fleece blanket for a rest. (I forgot my rest bag. Facepalm )
Then I moved to 100 yds., knowing it would be several inches high.

I confirmed that and noted that it was still a tad left. I dialed in a couple of clicks right and several clicks down. I shot five shot strings.
After five strings, it was on as much as I could see in the mid-afternoon light. And I was getting cold.

I had four inch groups at 100 yds. with the targets in shadow, M193 ammunition, using A2 dual aperture sights. I'll refine that in better light, probably tomorrow.

The trigger was pretty crisp without any creep or roughness. The lower receiver is Anderson, the lower parts are DPMS - decent quality. And I love the skeleton stock - fits me perfectly.

The upper is Wilson Arms Gov't Profile 20" chambered in .223 Wylde with a 1 in 9 twist.

Did a little re-loading today. Made up 50 rounds of 308 for my AR10. I processed the brass last weekend.

First comes the powder (RE15) weighing.

A scan in the brass to make sure I didn't miss one.

Finished round with a 178 grain Hornady A-Max.

Do you hand-weigh each load? I don't see any automation. Consider

I have a Lee perfect powder measure. Since I am using a stick powder and am anal about the charge weight, I set the dispenser for just under what I need and trickle the rest in.

If I am loading 5.56 and using a ball powder such as Ramshot TAC, I just set the dispenser and dump it right in the case.

I don't do a lot of mass ammo reloading. For my SHTF ammo, I just buy it in bulk. However, I like to have a supply of good ammo and I can tune the charge for my rifles and get better results and save money.

Sounds like fun.
I reload shotgun shells with a progressive reloader. I get the best of both - I can produce a large quantity of consistent loads and I can easily experiment with various loads.
