@Wayne6687, I'm planning on using some of the 9mm brass that I cleaned with the Armor All added to load some test rounds with my 135 grain cast bullets.
Just fyi, the Armor All seems to be working. Only loaded 30 rounds, but I definitely noticed a difference on the powder drop.

Lol that picture looks familiar. Just remember “I’m not shaming” lol. Sig destroyer reporting in. 😬. How’s that 3.8? You chrono? Remember my 7 grains of hs6 even though 1180-1200 FPS and low pressure took out the sig.

This about got me on a 180 hst for the 40s&w. I was at 6.3 and got pressure signs so dropped back down to 6.

I don’t have a chrono. I just go with whatever load is the most accurate. Its possible to double charge with Titegroup, but you’re gonna see it if you do.

I’m in Wiggins I’ve got a chrono just say when. On those mp bullets I’m at 1.135 oal 3.5 got me at almost 1000 FPS. Text me if you want to chrono those 228-257-1208. A chronograph is to help find the velocity for said load and more importantly let you know if things are getting way too hot.

Primed another (500) pieces of 9mm brass. Hopefully I can test a few tomorrow after cutting the grass.

Been raining all day, so I've doing a little brass prep. Deprimed and wet tumbled about 1,400 pieces of 9mm brass (they're in the shed drying). Primed another 500 pieces of 9mm brass from the last batch I cleaned. Loaded some more test rounds, these are from my Lee mold.

I’d like to try and make that for a 9mm
You’d probably either need to use the shot capsules or top them off with a piece of buckshot like the three on the right. I doubt the others would be able to cycle the slide.

12 gauge shorty , reduced load #2 buckshot. 3 rows of 5 pellets, slightly dimpled in the hull but are ok. Needed something to practice my roll crimping on and had these bad cases left over. Right at 1-7/8th's "
