Since Rural King made the very public stand to continue selling firearms and ammunition I thought I would spend some money in support of them. The website says they are sold out of much of what they sell. I specifically looked at 380 and 223. I didn't look at all the calibers. Did others feel the same way or maybe those people hoarding the supply, or what? Or were they sold out of the stuff before they made the public statement. They website says still sold out. Mostly of the bulk boxes of 500 and 1000. What gives? Balderdash I say!!
I should have been more specific. I was looking more at the bulk boxes of 500 or 1000.
Can anyone explain to me why the load data for 357 Sig( among others) varies so widely . Western Powders lists the load data for Accurate No 9 powder and a 115 gr Nosler JHP differently than Nosler. Nosler has the 115gr JHP with Accurate No 9 powder as having a different Max load which exceeds that listed by Western Powder themselves. Western powders lists the max load as being right under the 40k psi ceiling for that chambering. I have heard that although AA No 9 is a great powder, you have to be spot on with it or risk over charging.. Am I missing something here?
I recently picked up a Dan Wesson CBob (Classic bobtail) in 45ACP. I tried my typicaly 200 Gr + 4.0 gr of Bullseye. That load has been consistently accurate out of other 1911s and Sig p220s. On the Dan Wesson, while groups can cover a playing card, POI is consistenly about 3 inches high. At 7-10 years, they are about 1-2 inches high. I'm shooting with a sandbag. I'm curious on a few things...
My loads are light; do light loads tend to shift POI higher?
I read that light bullets print lower; I wonder if I make some 185s and see if that makes a difference. Are DW 1911 barrels better with different bullet weights?
My mistake is I did not bring any factory rounds; I'll try that next week.
Any feedback or lessons would be appreciated. Thank you.
