RE: The Loading Log
I have been trying different ammo and some of the Browning 147 flat nose was the best shooting at less than 900 FPS.
Noticeably less blast and recoil.
Has to be a 125 power factor or higher for USPSA minor power factor class.
PF= grains times velocity / 1000
147*860= 126420 =126.4 PF
minimum load from Hodgdon with CFE Pistol is 3.7 for 864 fps with a 147
4.2 for 963 fps both from a 4" barrel
mine should be faster with a 4.89" barrel
I guess I can start with 3.7 and meet PF for a match.
They will chrono your ammo at a big match.
After that Winchester NATO 124 FMJ was decent.
All I have is my Forster press right now.
Are you using a separate expanding die in the 550?
Or is the Dillon an expand and powder through die?
RE: The Loading Log
@jibnast What was your 9mm recipe?
What 9mm dies are good for a single stage?
Forster doesn't show any 9mm dies online where I am shopping.
Redding, Hornady, Lee and Lyman are the choices.

Starline +P 9mm brass 500 pieces
Berry's 147 flat nose 1000 count
Just checked my Redding 3BR match ready powder measure and it threw 3.7 grains of CFE223 ball right on every time when checked with my 10-10 beam scale.
Ran the measure all the way down to zero then up to one and threw a charge.
Backed it off some to 0.5 on the micrometer measurement and it was right on 4 grains.
A single hash mark less and it threw 3.7 grains 10 times in a row with a single tap to settle the powder charge and then a smooth dump stroke.
Saved me $50 for not having to buy the pistol metering chamber.
Will spend that on bullets.
Also got 2 new 20'X20' tarps to put down where I shoot to make recovering the brass easy as folding it up
How many uses can you get on straight walled brass?
Hornaday 3 die set is on sale or is crimping in a taper crimp die separately from seating better like a Lee 4 die set?
Redding sets are twice the price
RE: Good Cop/Bad Cop
Vomit. needs to be a Federal 18 USC 242 death penalty case.
Video was NOT admitted to the trial.
Not guilty verdict of 2nd degree Murder.
Over charged by DA.
Judge not allowing the video is insanity.
If you are not going to admit video, why even have it?
If clear video evidence is not admitted, how can there be Justice?

My Maternal Grandfather Served from 1937-1957 . He went straight from the Seneca Boarding School in NY to the Navy at age 18.

He was an aircraft mechanic and saw the transition from cloth biplane to metal monoplane to jets in his career.
He was 89 when he passed away and never talked about the War.
