I had an experience this weekend I need some help with. I was on the range working up loads for both 9mm and .40 S&W so I had several cartridges loaded and marked and was firing them for accuarcy, recoil, etc. I was logging all my data in my range book ( normal procedure for me ) when two other shooters came over and wanted to know "what the heck I was doing?" I explained and they commented that they would never, ever shoot reloaded ammo through their "high dollar" pistols. The relaoded ammo was dangerous, and above all way to "Dirty" to shoot without having to clean the weapon after 100 shots or so. I explained that I was careful and VERY precise when I reload and that the safety factor was the reason I was testing different loads that day. as for the dirty factor, I have found no appreciable difference in the amount of fouling or any other residue as a result of shooting reloads. anybody else find a large amount of "Dirt" when shooting reloads? And as for "high dollar" weapons I was shooting a Browing Hi-power 9mm and a Desert Eagle .40 S&W. I am glad I wasn't working on a .357 Mag load they wouldn't know what to think I had when I pulled my Korth revolver out of the case.
Airborne.... All the way!!
