Just received my test order of 250 9mm 125gr TC bullets from Blue Bullets. Going to get some test bullets made up this afternoon.
Still no changes on Precision Bullets web page and I emailed Dave on Sunday and have not received a response back.
We will see how the Blue Bullets run next week.
Since I typed this and never hit send, I’ll add a bit more before I do. On a side note I found a text message that I typed to my daughter two days ago and never hit send, could be why I did not get a reply.
Decided that since I have loaded quite a few different 124/125 gr 9mm bullets that I would just make up 25 @ 4.1 gr of N-320 and 25 @ 4.2 gr. Both @ 1.130 which is from the date from Blue Bullets. Every charge was weighed and my new electronic scale is making me even worse than I was before. All are either 4.10 or 4.20. My OAL seemed just a little bit more consistent with these than Dave’s but I attribute that to some variance in the moly coating on the flat point. These are more of a truncated round point. My go to load is 4.2 and I don’t really care for 4.1, just don’t like the feel of it when shooting them.
They loaded very easily and with the same flare that I always use. Just a slight bit of blue on my fingers after loading these and most likely,less than with the moly coated Precision Bullets. I’d still love to but another 7,000 from Dave before he closes down but kind of doubt that will happen.
We’ll see how they shoot next week and I may do a test varying the OAL slightly but @ 1.130 they look very good. I loaded Precisions @ 1.140.
I also love the shorter DramWorx powder hopper. For some reason that I do not recall, I had been using my Redding baffle in my old one. Used the DramWorx in this shorter one. I’m not getting the hang ups that I was getting with the Redding baffle (rod of powder stuck when dropping a charge) and am getting very consistent loads. Best results ever with reloading with N-320.
