  1. Moving to NH- purchasing process / regs

    I've done a half dozen handgun purchases over the past 5 years and all completed background check in 20-40 mins, except last November, when I had to wait two days for background check for a Ruger Mark IV 22. No idea why. I got the carry permit, which lasts for 5 years IIRC, for reciprocity...
  2. General NH questions...

    <rant> Most importantly, help us fight all the bills that the Democrats, who control congress, are trying to push through (or override vetos) right now. Hopefully, the Republicans can take control the next election, as these bills are horrible. </rant>
  3. Suggestions for adjusting load?

    Well, I wanted to just update the load from 4.6gr to 4.8gr, as an earlier test showed I was getting around 133 for PF for 4.8gr. However, I ran out of CCI primers and had to switch to Fiocchi. I created a batch of cartridges with these primers and 4.8gr, and I see a PF around 121. I'm assuming...
  4. Suggestions for adjusting load?

    Good to know. I’ll try to adjust the load. What std dev do you look for typically?
  5. Suggestions for adjusting load?

    Yes, all Dillion dies.
  6. Suggestions for adjusting load?

    Using a Dillon 650 with the separate crimp die. I did see on some of the strokes I was having a bit of a problem. Seemed like there was unusual amount of drag on the shell plate, so my pull was not smooth, and I was getting a few primers that were not seating well. I loosened the bolt holding...
  7. Suggestions for adjusting load?

    Good to know, I'm a beginner, so I'm just looking to have an opportunity to gauge how my training and practice is going in a more stressful situation. Guess I won't worry about it.
  8. Suggestions for adjusting load?

    Hi, I've done some 9mm, 125gr Precision Bullet, with an OAL of 1.134"-1.136", using 4.6 gr of CFE Pistol powder. I chrono'ed them and get a velocity of 1006 fps ave for one set of 15 and 1022 fps ave for a second set. The spread was 60.77 and std dev 15.35 for the first and 65.21 and 20.51 for...
  9. First USPSA match checklist

    Hop onto Practiscore | PractiScore where you can register for the event and pick a squad, if you haven't already. There's no payment, so you can pay at the event (and decide based on the weather). Also, on practiscore, for this event, they will have the layout for the (five, I think)...
  10. Does (small) bullet weight variance matter with 9mm?

    Cool! Thanks for the the advice! I’m newish to reloading and had done some Berrys plated bullets and then decided to try Precision bullets, and just happened to place some on the scale and was wondering if the differences mattered. Good to not only see that it doesn’t matter, but that the...
  11. Does (small) bullet weight variance matter with 9mm?

    I have some Precision Bullets 125gn for 9mm that I’m reloading. I just happened to place several bullets on my digital powder scale and I seem them ranging from 125.2 to 125.6 gn. Will that effect the performance? Is that kind of variance expected? I never have checked with any other bullets...
  12. Suggests for rest to check pistol POA/POI?

    I'm saying the Ransom Rest is too much... $435 - Ransom Master Series Rest® | Ransom Rest
  13. Suggests for rest to check pistol POA/POI?

    Ransom Rest looks nice, but well over what I want to spend. good to know though. I'm hoping to minimize the human factor, as much as possible. I found on Amazon the Caldwell Pistolero: View: https://www.amazon.com/Caldwell-Pistolero-Handgun-Shooting-Rest/dp/B000VJS4AS They also had a rifle...
  14. Suggests for rest to check pistol POA/POI?

    Hi, I'm looking for suggestions for a rest that I could use, when testing the accuracy of loads that I develop for pistols. I've tried resting my arms on a sandbag, but being a relatively new shooter, I'm not that confident that any inaccuracies aren't due to my trigger control/grip and not the...
  15. What striker fired gun?

    +1 on the try before you buy, and granite state range is great for that. Sent from my SM-G920V using Tapatalk
  16. Velocity and OAL

    The velocity that I'm getting for each load is below the starting velocity from the Hodgdon data for my powder (granted with the differences noted by EddieCoyle), except for my 4.8gr (highest load). That and the accuracy I was seeing was worse than with the 10 Berrys rounds from what I use...
  17. Velocity and OAL

    Sounds like a smaller OAL will increase pressure and hence velocity. So, the questions are... Should I decrease the OAL (to 1.125") and start over with load, or increase the load to get velocities that are more within the desired range? If I shorten the OAL as mentioned, is there a possibility...
  18. Velocity and OAL

    Hi, Will increasing the OAL produce lower velocities? I tested some Pecision Bullets 125gr 9mm RN coated bullets. I'm using CCI primers, and CFE Pistol powder. The Hodgdon site indicated that for LCN 125gr, I should start with 4.4 and max of 5.0. They had a OAL of 1.125". They said velocity...
  19. Questions on Precision bullets...

    Made 10 each of 5.8, 6.0, 6.2, and 6.4 gr of the 230gr Pecision Bullets using CPE Pistol powder and tested for accuracy and chrono'ed. Accuracy was best with 6.0 gr, just like with the plated Berrys bullets I was reloading. Will check chrono data tonight. No issues at all with the cartridges in...
  20. Questions on Precision bullets...

    Above stuff look ok to folks? With the Berry's, I had settled on a 6.0 gr load. CFE Pistol indicates to use LRN or mid range FMJ, so I had, at the time, done from 5.4-6.4gr in 0.2gr increments. Based on accuracy, and variation of chrono data I found that 5.8 and 6.0 were the best. So, with the...
