I have now tested my Coonan with both 6.7 grains and 7.7 grains of Unique and Herco, respectively, using an Oregon Trail 158 gr LSWC seated at 1.585 C.O.L. Both cycled perfectly, and they were much...

I have a LB Mono Heavyweight in .38 Super, and there is no structural differences that I can see--internally it is all 1911. The bit of extra weight makes the gun perfectly balance in my opinion, and...

Dsk, you are so correct in your statement. I have seen too many people that scare the heck out of me at public ranges, and I have left the range many times before I got injured. I've seen some scary...

57K and TheTinMan, you both make very good arguments (albeit correct ones) concerning the reasoning behind the taper and the reliability issue (or lack thereof) experienced in most 9mm platforms. And...

I'd have to agree. There are way too many double-stack mag 9's that run perfectly with the 9mm Luger--not to mention most 1911's run just fine as long as one uses a high quality mag (i.e. Wilson...

9mm Automatic

For those who load the 9mm Luger (9x19), there is a very good article in Shooting Times magazine on its major flaw (i.e. the taper), and a "new" cartridge, the 9mm Automatic, that would serve the...

57K, another very informative post. I favor WST, HP-38, and Bullseye over most powders when loading for .45 ACP in target applications. But, as I mentioned a few days ago, I look forward to the day...

Be careful...for I too have just started using 700-X, and it meters very poorly with my powder measure. I chose to load 4.6 grains of 700-X, and I would get some drops above the 5.3 gr max load--way...

Wow! I am very impressed with your .45 ACP load using the 200 gr XTP (one of my favorite bullets) and True Blue. A SD of 6 is just about as good as it gets. I will be on the close look-out for some...

57K, by the way, if I remember correctly, True Blue would make an excellent 38 Super Auto powder. Ramshot's Silhouette (formerly Winchester WAP) works good, but True Blue might be a better choice. I...

Matt, this is an awesome post and a testament of what kind of abuse a quality 1911 can go through (for all of the Tuperware naysayers out there). While I will probably never reach your round count on...

Herco and 357 Magnum

I am an experienced reloader, but I had no experience in loading the .357 Magnum, until I purchased a new Coonan last week. After studying up on the 357 Magnum for several days, I pretty much decided...

Red Dot is an excellent powder for my .44 Specials. But, I have not tried it in my .45 ACPs. From what I have read, it is a very good powder for .45 ACP lead target loads.
