DArBad, I did indeed. According to a recent article in the American Rifleman, the Ballister Molina is made from some very high quality steel too. Also, in the OP's price range, I recently purchased a...

If your target is 1.250, then +/- 0.002 variance is no problem at all. You are good to go.

Bsteiner27, my bad: WST is not good for the 9mm. I was just thinking about 45 ACP. Noylj, thanks for pointing out my mistake. 57K's suggestions would be great though.

I really like Power Pistol, and I have looked at BE-86--but I do not mind PP's flash. As soon as I find some True Blue and Silhouette, I an going to by some.

According to Stephen A. Camp, you should stick to the factory 13 round magazines. For what its worth, I sure do miss Mr. Camp's insight on Hi Powers and other handguns.

Guys, I shot one today, and I was very impressed with the gun. It is far easier to shoot than my Glock 19, and I loved the grip angle and trigger. The trigger even felt better to me than the new H&K...

57K, I would agree with you in the 700-X vs. Unique comparison for the 200 gr HRN XTP. While I really like the great old Unique powder, it tends to excel at above mid-range loads, especially for...

With the powders that you have, I would first try 800-X. It does not meter very well, but it should work fairly well and its accurate. I understand that you want to use the powders in your inventory,...

Vanslam, I have found 1.250 C.O.L. worked fine for me using the same Rainier 230 grain bullet over 6.0 grains of CFE Pistol. A very good range load indeed.

I've never loaded the 185 gr Remington HPs (great bullets too); therefore, I have no load data, and as a matter of fact, neither does Hodgdon. Thus, the only way to know for sure would be to use a...
