Finally had a chance to load some 9mm, using the new Lee undersize sizing die and the factory crimp die, along with my usual expanding and seating dies, all in a Hornady progressive. Fired all the...

My Guardian and my Nighthawk Talon love Chip McCormick mags, as well as Metalform. Both are 9mm; NH doesn't love WC mags. Won't lock back slide after last round.

I neglected to mention that I have a custom Nighthawk 9mm (built to my specs) that eats these handloads with no problems. Same for factory fodder. And it's a tack driver.

Some good, thoughtful info here. As I said earlier, it was possible to resize some loaded rounds that would easily drop into the DW chamber, but not workable solution. That technique squeezes some...

Question about DW chamber dimensions

I recently received a DW Guardian (2020 production) 9mm. I've finally had time to run a bunch of loads thru it, with some interesting results. Zero malfunctions with 3 different factory loads,...

I'm old enough to remember the world going crazy in 1968. Probably more actual loss of life in the riots that year than now. Big difference now is the social media organization, the millions of...
