Reloading and Handloading / Re: H4227 for handguns
« Last post by scarville on Today at 12:56:40 PM »
Except for the FTX, my limited experiments with the 140 gr bullets in 357 mirrors your experience.  The Hornady HP-XTP looks like it could be a formidable load out to about 120 or a bit yards from a carbine.  Unfortunately, the latest shortage interfered with any serious load development.  Still, I am really curious to see how Alliant 300-MP performs.

Thanks for the pointer to Blue Dot.  Looks promising.

I could probably manage the Bodyguard and the LCP but I think the G42 is just too big compared to the other two for them all to share one rig even if it were a little more generic. The barrel length and grip size is a fair chunk bigger, I think I could probably build something to fit the other two though.

Good. I'm glad to hear that KT may have managed to remove its cranium from its pelvis. They deserve to do well.

Reloading and Handloading / Re: H4227 for handguns

  I too, like the 158sfor all my .38Spl loads. I like the 158s for .357Mag (both jacketed and hard cast/gas ckecked) for anything1,250 and under, but I'd say my favorite weight for full power Magnum loads are the 140grs by the various makers. I think they have the right balance of weight and velocity...man will they knock the hell out of a coyote from both 6.5" Blackhawk and Marlin carbine!

  Here's some other small rifle and shotshell powders I have had good, safe performance in magnum pistol ctgs, in addition to H4227 and IMR4227: Blue Dot, HS-6 & HS-7, H110, Win 571 and Vihtavuori's N350 & N110.

  For the .38Spl: Blue Dot, Hi- SKOR 700-X, SR7625/4756, Red Dot, Universal Clays, WSL, Win 571 and Vihta's N320, N340.

  I've used all the above with very to great results, but to be frank, my favorite all around powder for the handgun calibers I've loaded for is Blue Dot, originally a shotshell powder, it's excellent in 9mmx19, .38Spl and .357Mag, which I've loaded extensively. I've also loaded a bit of .38 Super w/ it and attained excellent results. When I was reloading, Blue Dot became my "go to" powder for all my handgun loads.
  I might add that my son also has excellent results w/ Blue Dot in .38Spl, .45ACP and .45 Colt.

Activism and Gun Politics / Shaneen Allen, Race, and Gun Control

An excellent article in the Washington Post about race and gun control, I highly recommend it.

Quote
Last year, 47.3 percent of those convicted for federal gun crimes were black — a racial disparity larger than any other class of federal crimes, including drug crimes. In a 2011 report on mandatory minimum sentencing for gun crimes, the U.S. Sentencing Commission found that blacks were far more likely to be charged and convicted of federal gun crimes that carry mandatory minimum sentences. They were also more likely to be hit with “enhancement” penalties that added to their sentences.

Yeah, something a bit generic, but still nice.

Production is up.  Quality Control is up.   KT is doing a lot better... I know a couple guys here in NC that bought KSG's recently and they are doing great.
