If COAL is not published for the exact bullet I’m loading, I start seating a bullet for one cartridge (no powder or primer) where the COAL will allow the cartridge to fit into my magazines. Then I...

For any lead or plated from 115 to 125 in 9mm, 4.0g of Titegroup is where I’d start (and most likely finish).

I can’t recall being terribly impressed by bullseye for 9mm but I saw the article and plan to try it just for giggles. I’m a sucker for trying new loads. 🙄

1st 1911 - A lot. I had a budget of about $900.
2nd 1911 - None. It was DW Specialist on clearance for $1300 and it felt great in my hand. Didn’t even know I was going to buy a 1911 that day.

For pure accuracy it’s hard to beat a good JHP. That said, plated bullets can be a lot less expensive yet provide a very sufficient level of accuracy. Plated bullets also don’t smoke like lubed lead...

I honestly can’t say I’ve ever found any powder to be “too dirty” to be considered. I can say some powders and/or charge weights are not accurate. I freely admit that I do not like the recoil impulse...

One of my buddies has one. It’s a neat looking gun. It seems to recoil more than expected but that’s just my impression. Thanks for sharing, we all do silly things from time to time.
