Considering some of the things I've seen here and other places, I wouldn't be surprised if that epitaph makes it onto a few headstones.Originally posted by Houston1944:
My obituary will not read "killed by chamber fragments while attempting to get 2000 FPS with 230 gr RN".
Ive started out low velocity and recoil...partially to get my wife back into handgun shooting..and partially because I find...a times..SOME 230 hardball difficult to shoot. Im using 180-200 grain jacketed ammo...and will progress from about 725 FPS up until I have something that I cant control at all...then back down a tad. The way I look at it...a slug of "X" size at 1400 FPS is worthless to me if I cant hit anything with it.WDG said:I feel that many here didn't really understand the question I was asking and that is mostlly my fault.
I was just wondering what most of the reloaders here shoot. I don't really like recoil. I just wanted to know if I would be "out of place" making softer loads or if I should stick to ball ammo numbers.
I don't find the 45 recoil out of line like I did with my 4" S&W model 29[ sold it several years ago].
