I was able to score some 130gr Federal HST Wadcutters used in Federal Micro HST 38 Special +P self defense ammo. I have tested the 38 Special +P and it performs really well in Clear Ballistics gel. My curiosity lead me to perform this test with 357 Magnum as there is very little data available […]
I was able to score some 130gr Federal HST Wadcutters used in Federal Micro HST 38 Special +P self defense ammo. I have tested the 38 Special +p and it performs really well in clear ballistic gel. Will these same 130gr HST Wadcutters hold up under 357 Magnum Velocities? This is going to be fun. […]
Many before me have discussed 38 Special wadcutter, its accuracy, and its ability to be a crusher. Ed Harris documented the effects of the DEWC (full wadcutter) in 38 Special very well for us to reflect upon all of its goodness. This got me to thinking; if it was this good and still yet very […]
Welcome back, reloaders! Let’s get down too it. I was browsing through Brownells website the other day and decided to try out the famous Forster Micrometer Seating dies and do a review. I’ve heard a lot of hype around Micrometer dies in general and especially this one. If you follow any of […]
This M&P Magnum model 65 is the 3" barreled, round butt version and could be the carry gun you've been looking for. You'll have to look on the used racks for one of these wonderful revolvers though as they are no longer in production.
Using my Glock and Beretta barrels to try out the Super Nano Detergent to clean them. It works pretty good.

Happy Halloween..!! The 38 Special - let's go one better - also loaded was the 357 Magnum. And here's the range testing on a very windy day in Northern California.
I changed the grips on the Kimber double action only because of the wild ride caused by full powerhouse 357 magnum. After changing the grips I visited the range to see just how the Kimber K6 would perform compared to it’s younger brother the K6 double action only and a S&W386PD Scandium Frame, mr.revolverguy

Let’s go ahead and do that using Hodgdon Triple Seven FFFg powder and see if there is any utility there… FortuneCookie45LCFortuneCookie45LC started posting […]
Kimber, why would you do such a thing to us? mr.revolverguy

Range day finally 😀
I needed a way to consolidate and compare the information from all of my powder coated cast lead hollow point tests.
Today I will do an overview for my Smith and Wesson 686 Plus.
Trying some unconventional/non popular methods/powder selection here, as I couldn’t find any video of someone using Tite Group in 357 Magnum. ChicowizeI’m a Rookie Reloader. I started in July 2018 with my first press being a Dillon XL650 and recently I’ve joined the community of casting my own projectiles and loving it as much as reloading. […]
