Re: Feeding issues on a Colt Competition 9mm

How did the range session go? I have been shooting Bayou Bullets for a number of years and have never had an issue with the bullet itself. I do gauge every round I load. I have found a small percentage of the cases to have rim that is too large in diameter to go into the gauge. Some are just bugger...

Re: Feeding issues on a Colt Competition 9mm

Well guys I think I may have just solved my mystery. It seems that the Bayou Bullets projectiles are slightly larger around than the FMJ. The BB rounds were measuring out to .357 - .370 in diameter. Evidently this is just enough to keep the round from seating fully in the chamber. On the advice of N...

The symptoms he described are almost exactly what I'm experiencing, thanks Rotor, this might just be the problem. I will check this tonight when I get home. Thanks for the video and the help!

Re: Feeding issues on a Colt Competition 9mm

Do you have a case gauge to see how these loads fit? What happens when you just take the barrel out and try to insert a cartridge into the barrel? Does it easily load? I use a case gauge for everything I load, either Wilson or Lyman. FMJ usually .355 diameter and lead .356. The only other thing I c...

Feeding issues on a Colt Competition 9mm

I'm Having some reliability issues with my hand loads in a Colt Competition 1911 in 9mm. For some reason the gun jams closed when the slide cycles and loads a new round. The round almost fully loads and when this happens the slide is just out of battery by about a mm or so, just enough to keep it fr...

Re: New Reloader here, Need some help.

Thank's everyone for the advise and comments. I made it out to the range to test out my loads and ended up coming home and bumping up the powder charge to 4.5gr, had a few issues with the slide cycling reliably.

Re: New Reloader here, Need some help.

Warnmar10,

I got the recipe from load data.com so I'm pretty sure it's accurate. Since I am brand new to reloading I figured I would post my setup here and let the other members come in with tips and advice. Thanks for the response.
