Shot my first reloads today and no issues at all
but christ, you can make a 45ACP feel like a 9mm
I like to go the opposite way. I think the gun tracks better when it's got some snap.
Plus it probably costs less than store bought 9mm now too
Less recoil... gee, no fucking shit.
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.
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.
i thought about reloading but i only shoot 9mm. wouldnt be worth it to me. i just avoid wwb.
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.
I seriously considered bringing some leather gloves to the range for my first reloads
