  1. Centerfire Pistols & Revolvers
    Hello all. Just joined today and this is my first post, so forgive me if I’ve posted in the wrong place! 24 y/o business owner from the trenches of Houston, Tx. Just purchased my first firearm a month ago. I purchased a SA Hellcat Pro. Love the gun. I’ve shot a couple handguns at the range in my...
  2. The Ammo & Reloading Forum
    Now lately I've been wondering about different scenarios as to where FMJ would be a better choice of round for different situations, and what some of those situations would be (Compared to hollow points)- which are common for self/home defense due to the reasons we all know. I guess what I'm...

    Good evening, I shot some surplus ammo that I was told had primer pockets that needed to be prepped using a swaging die before reloading. Unfortunately, I mixed all my brass when I cleaned them and now I don’t know how to tell which need to be swaged and which do not. Is there an easy way to...

  5. The 1911 Forum
    Saw another poster on here talking about their odd-caliber ria so i figured I'd take my .22 tcm 2011 for a walk. I had 5 new magazines and a set of hogue wraparounds to test out along with my now clean ejector that was previously too dirty to function. Filled each mag to 16 rounds twice and they...

  8. The Ammo & Reloading Forum
    I recently got a CZ Scorpion and I'm wanting to make some super hot loads to get as close to rifle ballistics as possible. Has anyone done this or have any advise? I understand it would wear the gun faster but I would only be shooting these in a SHTF scenario, not regularly.
  9. The Ammo & Reloading Forum
    I currently have a Shield 9mm, but 9mm ammo is very hard to find and reload supplies are even harder to find. What alternative caliber would you recommend getting for better availability? I was considering getting a .40S&W because I can find components to build ammo, but I see many reports...

  11. The Ammo & Reloading Forum
    I was looking through my spent brass casings from the range and I came across the Winchester ammo that had the NATO stamp and WMA stamp on it. I did not know what this was so I researched. I saw on one forum that to reload this brass, I need to swage the primer pocket. I’m not sure what this...

    I am not necessarily desperate, but indications are that I will be if there’s no improvement in product availability, so as Mick Jagger sang, You can’t always get what you want! I ordered 1000 bullets, 38 Super, 121gr JHP .356” diameter. I’m guessing if I can load Berry’s plated, which are .356”...

    So I just purchased some Hornady Critical Defense 9mm Luger ammo for my Glock 43. I immediately noticed the rounds are shorter than my federal ammo. When loaded in the magazine there is about a 1/4 gap between the tip and the interior magazine wall. Today, I unloaded the weapon to try out a new...

    Anyone have a proven load (reliable expansion) for 9mm Speer GDHP 124gr bullet in 3.1" barrel?
  15. The Ammo & Reloading Forum
    Reloading 9mm cases, fired one time (I did not trim the cases) using 4.3gr Ram Zip powder and Berry's 115gr Plated bullets. The manual lists the "Tested COAL" as 1.130. I'm getting inconsistent seating depths from 1.126 to 1.132 with my Lee Bullet Seating Die. How much can you deviate from...
  16. The Ammo & Reloading Forum
    New to reloading and want to reload Speer 9mm, 124gr GDHP over 5.2gr of Unique which is the starting load for this bullet. The powder fills the case so that when the bullet is seated to the recommend COAL of 1.120" it looks like the bullet will be sitting on the powder...that makes me nervous...
  17. Centerfire Pistols & Revolvers
    Hope this post is in the proper place, just joined this forum. So I went to the range today to put some more rounds through my new Springfield XDE 9mm. This gun now has 262 rounds through it. #138-262 were put through it today and are shown in the pictures. Decided to bring my Canik TP9 with me...

    I have a 1939 Mauser that is in good shape. I'm looking to find out as much as possible about this gun that I can. The proof markings on left and right don't seem to match things I've found on line. Aside from knowing more about the specific history of this gun (i.e.: police version, military...
