Re: NRA Basic Metallic Cartridge Reloading Class

I will host another class in late January. If anyone is interested, please PM me so I can send the details. Tentative date is for January 29. You will leave the class with a good basic knowledge of reloading, practical experience and 25 rounds of your personally loaded handgun ammunition.

Re: Arms Room League City

It WAS great fun. 35 people and 6 scenarios completed in about 3 hours. Everyone shot safely and did a great job. Try it out.

Re: Loading 357s

You should be fine loading 357 with Titegroup. The loading manual will tell you whether you need magnum primers or not, but I suspect with the low loading density of Titegroup you will not need them.

Re: New IDPA rules, ESR cylinder latch

It is about 3/8 of an inch. You need to use the "old style" SDM latch on an IDPA gun.

Re: New IDPA rules, ESR cylinder latch

It wasn't legal under the old rules and is not legal under the recent change.

Re: Powder Recomendations

HP-38 is a good powder. It is essentially the same as WW231, but has less smoke and slightly lower loading density. I have used it successfully in 9, 40, 45 and 38.

Re: Powder Recomendations

My new favorite powder for .45 is WST. Clean burning, no flash and economical. Works great.

Re: Anyone stock shotshell speed strippers/loaders in Housto

Jin, If you order the california comp works holders from Midway USA, they usually arrive in three days. If you want to try one, PM me and we can get together. I use them and believe they work very well.

Re: Brass Storage

The reason compvest keeps me around is to keep her supplied with loaded ammunition...And she goes through a bunch of it.

Re: Brass Storage

I have found that a 55 gallon drum works great for my 9mm brass. I use a 35 gallon trash can for 40 S&W and 45 ACP. All the rest is in 5 gallon buckets.

Re: 45 ACP brass with small primer pockets

I separate the small primer stuff and when I have enough to justify doing so, I reload it. I have found no problems and haven't had to change any of my current recipes. The stuff works great. If I could get a couple thousand empties, I would use it for my match ammunition.
