i have been rifle shooting/ reloading, and UIT pistol shooting for a long time now, and i am now getting into IPSC as well. I have decided after talking to many top shooters over here, to go with a custom pistol based on an STI frame and slide.
i have about one month now to go untill my 'custom' STI should be finished. So i have started buying my ammo, so that i can take my time and make up a few different rounds buy the time the pistol is finished.
So far, the one load, that i have been given (used by a lot of IPSC shooters with the same build STI's) is a 200grn. rnd. projectile with 3.8/4 grains of powder. (i havent given models/ brands, as they are all different to what you guys shoot in the USA etc.)(though if anyone is interested for whatever reason, i can talk about the brands etc used/ made over here.) The load makes major PF, and throws them out at around 900/950fps. (i will post all my testing once i can actually start
Now what i was wondering was, in general do you guys think i would be better off to try lighter projectiles going a bit faster, etc.
maybe 150grn projectiles, or 180? etc.
Any help will be greatly appreciated,
so just for more info- the only intended use for this pistol, is IPSC style shooting.
I will post some pics and let yous know how things go once my pistol is finally finished
Thanks in advance
