  1. Ammo and Reloading
    My dad recently gave me his hunting guns. Two 12ga shotguns, a 16ga that’s almost 100 years old, a deer rifle and the 22 I shot beer cans with as a kid. He also gave me all his old ammo. The newest is probably from the 1990’s. My question is how old is too old? And if it is too old what do I...

    Has anyone shot Sterling 9mm ammo? Any good? Found a local deal 1000 rounds for $545
  3. P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    Looking at buying some Federal HST to carry in my P320 X-Compact, and wondering if I should get the +P or regular. I like the idea of having a bit more energy from the +P, but is it wise to carry it if most of my practice is with regular ammo? What is recommended? And is +P that much better anyway?

    I recently bought a p229 and I was wondering what type of ammo you guys like? I have 90 hollow points although they’re all steel case. How does the gun handle steel casings? Do you guys use brass? If you could link me to any online websites for ammo I would appreciate it.
  6. P365
    I haven't been to the range in a few weeks. Hope everyone else is getting out there and having fun. Wanted to throw a question out there. I don't load my own ammo, and I can't get any ammo ( 9 mm for my Sig ):huh: now just like everyone else. So if I go to the range, I have to use their ammo...

    Found some .380 in stock. Haven't seen any in a good while. Seems to be the going rate now.. https://www.midwestgunworks.com/page/mgwi/prod/usa380w
  8. P365
    Hi there, I'm a new p365 owner and bought some 9mm - Speer Gold Dot 115 +P+ Grain JHP but when it arrived I noticed a warning stating it's for LE only and has maximum average pressure of 40,000 CUP is 22% higher than ANSI/SAAMI standards. I know the p365 can fire +P ammo, is +P+ the same...
  9. SIG Sauer Pistols
    Hi All, A little back story info. Got this gun in 2016 and didn't shoot it much. Decided to dust it off and take it out a few weeks ago. Shot some WWB 9mm through it, and was getting FTE's left and right. I call up Sig, they said to send it back. They replaced the extractor, and recoil spring...
  10. P238, P938 Pistol
    Hi Folks, I am a new Sig owner enjoying learning the ins and outs of a P238. After putting it through its paces at the range it has been interesting to see what it likes and what it does not. Monarch Brass Case, 94gr FMJ - loves it. Over 150 rounds no issues Monarch Steel Case, 94gr FMJ -...
  11. P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    I was at the range shooting my Sigs. Sig P230 9x17 and Sig P320C-RX 9x19. I accidentally loaded the 9x17 (380 Auto) into the 9x19 (9mm Luger). The Sig P320C-RX 9x19 fired, but stove piped the 9x17 brass. I plan to be more careful in the future. My question is did that hurt my gun Sig...
  12. Ammo and Reloading
    Sig has come out with their 365 9mm ammo for short barreled pistols, has anyone seen a comparison of this ammo and the regular Sig 9mm ammo, or any other ammo for that matter, in short barreled pistols? I'm curious is there enough of a difference to get the 365 sig ammo for my P938?
  13. P365
    I am really glade to be here. It seem like the people here are about sharing information and knowledge and not putting people down. Especially when they express their opinions and or ask innocent questions that may have been asked before. Before I purchased my P365 (my first Sig) I read a lot...
  14. SIG Sauer Rifles
    ADVICE NEEDED, PLEASE: MCX causing excessive markings on fired cases I fired my MCX Partol in 5.56 (with Gen2 BCG) for the first time last week. I used Norinco 55gr FMJ ammo for the barrel break-in. I then noticed some strange markings on the head stamp of the spent cases (see the pic with 2...
  15. SIG Sauer Pistols
    Greetings, I'd like to ask what's your mixture for a 9mm to be shot from a p226 for your reloads? Do you teflon coat it or just lead? 115gr, 124gr or 147gr? How does it group? How big is the projectile and how much and what type of powder do you put in? Any input would be greatly appreciated...
  16. Ammo and Reloading
    I’ll bet the topic’s been broached here already, my first time experience was something. I found the case, asked the closest salesperson to sell me a few specific boxes, nothing extra or out of the ordinary. The sales person asked to see state issued id, then said she had to get manager’s...
  17. Ammo and Reloading
    New 938 owner and I've been trying to dig through some of the older threads but would like to hear what everyone's opinion is for which defensive ammo works best (and doesn't work well) for the 938. Looking for something very dependable, my 226 has been able to eat anything I feed it but have...
  18. P250, P320, & P320 X-5 Pistols
    Heading out to film a pretty renowned hunter on the take for an Alaska Penninsula Coastal Brown Bear with a wooden English Longbow. I bought the P250 .40 cal for personal defense and have filmed several Alaskan Coastal Brown Bear hunts with it on my hip, but I will have to be closer to the...
  19. P238, P938 Pistol
    Hey all, I'm a new Sig owner, just took possession of my brand new Sig P238 SAS this past Tuesday. I even got to cut the zip tie on the case! (And let me tell you, as someone who has OCD, being able to "break" the factory seal is soooo satisfying!). But anyway, I've yet to take it to the range...

    Hey everyone! Very excited to say that I just purchased my new Sig P226 Elite, and I'm anxiously waiting for it to ship to my local FFL. In the mean time, I wanted to inquire to fellow P226 owners what brand of 9mm ammo that they prefer to put through the pistol. Mostly range and target...
