I too use wood that I rip from 2x4s and staple the cardboard to the strips. Since I have my own range I have cut and sunk in the ground 2" pvc pipes in various places and the wood legs slip into the...

My range bag is a box, the type that Bullseye shooters have used for years. Will hold multiple pistols, spotters scope, ammo and cleaning kit. Old fashioned I guess, but it works.

Sounds good. I just stumbled on it yesterday while out of town and bought the last two pounds. Looks like 231 so it should meter very well. We'll see.

Just about all rounds I shoot are defensive rounds whether factory or hand loads. I consider them all hot when velocity reaches 850 to 950 fps. Personally, I load for 850 to 900 fps because this...

Ramshot Silhouette for .45 ACP

Anyone use it? The Hornady manual indicates it can push the 230 gr XTP to 900 fps. Ramshot's data reflects 900 plus.

I'll keep my eye out for some Clays, too bad handling charges are so high. I'll let you know if I find a case or two.

Well, maybe I shouldn't load it up. 4.0 chrono'd at 740, 4.2@778, 4.4@790, 4.6@796 and 4.8@843 fps. The Fed +P cases looked normal and the primers weren't cratered. The bullets I used were 230 gr...

Clays For 45 ACP

Anyone loading 45 ACP with Clays? Hodgdon shows 4.0 gr MAX with 732 fps under a 230 gr bullet. I just wonder why the velocity is so low. Would think it should run at least 850 fps.

My 42 has had a few slide issues, but it's usually traced to my thumb being in the wrong place. Guess I've been accustomed to resting it on the safety on my commander.
