They wont be loaded nearly as strong as pp rounds, just used for target and exercise. I know the train like you fight and fight like you train adage, which would dictate using 125 Grn bullets and comparable loading to mimic pp rounds, but wasting 125 grn bullets on paper and dirt to me is not frugal

At .98 the bullet would hit the step in the chamber, when I went to .965 - .970 the gun cycled fine and fully closed. I think This could be just a BG problem but not sure, maybe a combination of BG and the shape of the Berry 100 gr RN.

i loaded up 5 to go test in the am.
kept powder low, I figured these guys would be screaming at 100 grains, pretty sure the copper coating will stay intact
3.5 grains of #2 accurate powder.
