Just joined up and enjoyed your vid. You did some nice shooting. I am by no means a comp shooter but have had my share of those type targets. I personally like the HG-68, 78, and 130. Most of my shooting however is with magnum revolvers so the lite Bullseye charges for those type target loads isn’t a big factor. Again good shooting and if your interested in trying any of the above feel free to give me a shout.

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 »

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?

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 »

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
