Re: What is the status of Coonan?

Not sure how. If you try to add anything to your cart on their website you get a 404 error page.

Re: Looking for a good 22LR pistol

I still need a revolver. Wish I could buy the Ruger Wrangler here.

Re: Looking for a good 22LR pistol

My Ruger SR22 is fussy about ammo, even after Ruger put a new barrel on it. My Ruger MKiii and 22/45 lite will eat anything all day long no problems. Had a Berreta Neos at one point, complete junk that malfunctioned every 100-150 rounds. I also have a Browning 1911-22 but have not shot it enough to ...

Re: 1911 9mm question

Come party in the cheap-seats... The view is mediocre and the beer is a little flat. I got a Rock Island Armory 1911 in .22TCM/9MM. Here's the thread http://www.mnguntalk.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=58606 and here's some gratuitous TCM Fireball pr0n. 22tcm.JPG After looking at RIAs website, it look...

Re: I'm back (total nube, I know) Die problem?

Gotta agree more lube. It's a lot harder to overdue it than you think. I load up a tray of brass and give it a shot from every side using Hornady One Shot at an angle so a little gets down the neck and every piece gets hit. Even then that's sometimes light.

Re: Step 1, clean brass in tumbler (How?)

I just use walnut from the pet store. A little dusty but it works. This rice thing has me interested. I thin NuFinish with oderless mineral spirits and add some of that to each batch. ~2 hours and my brass is shiny. Thinning the NuFinish with mineral spirits was key. Doing that it cut my tumbling ti...

Re: Forster 6mm BR Full Length Resizing Die Pissing Me Off

Their die's expander ball has to be in line with their "vent" hole (for excess lube if over lubed) which places a portion of the expander up into the neck area of the die. This helps support the neck when resizing as well as helps keep the "runout" of the neck low, and tight tol...

Re: Magnum Pistol Powders

I used 4227 in 357mag and was also unimpressed. The other issue with 4227 is load data is inconsistent due to the history of it. There used to be IMR 4227 and Hodgdon H4227 which were similar but not identical. IMR was made in Canada and Hodgdon was made in Australia. The Canada made IMR 4227 was di...

Re: 380 reloading

Now you are making me want to try this but I think all my brass is loaded right now.

I use Ramshot True Blue and they list the following load:

115 NOSLER JHP
Min - 3.3gr 725fps
Max - 3.8gr 830fps
0.980 COL

That COL is pretty close to the SAMMI max of 0.984.

Re: XDs in .45

I still have an original model 9mm. Only time I have ever had a malfunction was with Inceptor ARX poly ammo. I can't stand the extended mags, they just feel wrong. I used to have the finger tails on the short ones but when I started carrying it in my cargo pants pocket they had to go. I rarely carry...

Same here. Also guessing resale value on my first gen XDS is pretty low. I rarely carry my XDS anymore though. My Kahr CW380 is usually my go to since it pockets so nicely.

Re: 50 Cal Beowulf questions

My Hornady 9th has data for the 300gr FTX/XTP, 350gr XTP and 500gr FP-XTP for Lil'Gun, Win 296, H110 and IMR 4227. That's the only of all my manuals that has that cartridge.
