Re: New Reloader with detailed COL numbers looking for double check

While the benchers guys made a thing out of jamming bullets into the lands, that is not a good idea for most of us. Once had an issue where I ejected an unfired round and left the bullet in the throat. That wasn't the worst part though. The case spilled ball powder into the bolt locking lugs and act...

Re: Made a video of a 3D printed suppressor.

Neat. I bet you could save a lot of weight by press fitting a thin aluminum tube as a sleeve around the first chamber and threaded area for tension strenght. Perhaps heat it up and let it cool on. I understand that wasn't the purpose of your project, but thinking about how to mature the technology ...

Re: Made a video of a 3D printed suppressor.

Very interesting. Any idea how the tight inside tolerances hold, wondering about airflow, turbulence and accuracy? I can't comment on resin type printers but the FDM type are not wildly accurate because they are, after all, just melting plastic. Stuff like threads need to be printed with some extra...

Re: Made a video of a 3D printed suppressor.

Lots of working even making a simple video, but figured out what resin is strongest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekDs60QxmNE I don't have any experience with resin printers but I can tell you that FDM printed PLA is fairly strong. Certainly strong enough to work on a 9mm pistol. The biggest iss...

Blue Dot, anyone used Blue Dot?

I was gifted two pounds of Blue Dot and would like to use it in something. It would seem the 300 BLK with subsonics would be a good candidate.

Re: New Reloader with detailed COL numbers looking for double check

VERY New to reloading and being in my mid fifties I’m disappointed I waited this long. The number of rabbit holes to go down is amazing! So, being a bit older I enjoy trying to apply logic to things but there are plenty of times when I discover I’m not as smart as I think I am. XXX XXX XXX XXX So, ...

thanks! looks like it is best for subs with heavier bullets. I was hoping it would be good for the 150 gr. Gold Dots but I will try it with them anyway. maybe my barrels will like it.
Ive been using 4227 and 4198 for 150gr subs with good results in a 10" upper.

Re: Effects of air Temperature on Subsonic load speed

Altitude change will change the velocity of the round. With increased elevation there is lower air density which will allow for an increase the velocity of the bullet everything else being equal. Altitude can’t be ignored as a contributing variable to a subsonic load. Similar effect as increasing t...
