Good shooting! You probably WERE getting fatigued by 100 rounds. That’s a LOT of shooting for a target. The lightest bullets that I’ve ever shot from my 1911 was 185gr, and I didn’t seem to have great accuracy, due to the short bearing surface, but these 170’s seem to have a very small point, and longer base, which would give you the bearing surface for accuracy. If I could afford a Saeco mold, I’d probably try these, but for now I’ll just have to admire your success. Thor seems to have a good setup

Hey buddy. I agree with the comment that Jerry 1911 made about getting fatigued, However, I believe that by shooting those you found out the gun is accurate, it’s just the small stuff like Trigger and sights from here on out. I believe that you can get a Two cavity 180 SWCBB for cheaper than the Saeco mold from Magma engineering. that bullet shoots on par with the 170. I have the six cavity mold 200gr from Lee, the thing is you are back into the recoil of it. Most shooters shoot those heavier bullets at the 50-yard slow fire… Read more »

With respect to the five-shot group top left: at that point, you had completely eliminated the center of the target. I wonder if you might have allowed your point of aim to attach to something that was actually there, instead of an empty space?

Look at MPMolds (Mihec) he has one for this boolit and his moulds are perfect and run right out of the gate. As a Machinist of 35 years I couldn’t duplicate these if my life depended on it. His work is pure Jewelry! You will find that most of the H&G 68 moulds drop at around 200 gr. I realize you said these were 170 but you’ll get the same results with the 200 gr version . https://www.mp-molds.com/e-shop/molds/solid-molds/mp-452-200-swc-pb-hg-68-4-cav 90.25 Eu or $101 US. for a Brass 4Ccav mould this is cheap! Also Look at Powder Coating these as it makes… Read more »
