    powder puff...

    I like to go the opposite way. I think the gun tracks better when it's got some snap.

    :) Good stuff!

    No do tell, how many times did your reloading sequence flash in front of your eyes before you finally pulled the trigger on your first handload. :x:

    I also agree with Yar. I have found a little hotter loads gets my sight back on track and I am grouping much nicer. Now that you have found a safe level, I'd advise you check out making a few loads that deviate up a little until you find that sweet spot.

    Take into consideration how you spring your gun and technique will have affects to felt recoil. As you develop a more solid technique, you will find soft loads will not be necessary.

    Good job! :bigthumb:

    How often do you shoot? If you plink less than 1k rounds a year, maybe not. But I can make 1k rounds of 9mm for around 80-90$ tailored for my gun. WWB is somewhere around 18-19 per hundred, making it $190 to shoot hot loads. Don't you shoot competitively? I thought I remember you said something about having an STI.

    there's no fun in soft loads. the real fun comes in putting .50AE across a chrony so fast that it forever reads all 9s...

    at this rate i'll avg roughly 16k rnds. i caught a good deal on blazer brass and get em for 7.50 a box untaxed. so i have a few thousand rnds to hold me over.. so im payin $150 per 1k,.. which isnt too bad considering i dont think i could find the time to reload properly.

    tell me about it, I work 50-60 hours a week and have a 4 month old that thinks midnight is play time. :) I am down to reloading the night before a match because I sometimes will change my mind last minute on what division I'm going to shoot.

    Next year it'll be all about making 9mm Major loads for my SVI Open.
