Actually there is at least one very good reason to shoot high quality reloads instead of 3rd world Military surplus. That would be to reload lighter (say 180 gr.) bullets to less than a mil. spec. velocity. Firing these "lighter rounds" at steel plates or targets at the range is much easier on the shooter and his pistol while continuing to provide the same benefits.Originally posted by dsk:

Not to split hairs here, but is it possible you meant to say Bullseye powder? IIRC Bluedot is a rather bulky, slow burning powder (as handgun/shotgun powders go). By the way, I still use a fair amount of Bullseye. I use it when I can't get WW231 locally.-TROriginally posted by dla:
Back when people used Bluedot powder, you'd hear stories of case blowouts/gun blowups from double-charging
