Friday was chrono day only. I had several new recipes to try, including Longshot, Blue Dot and BE86 all in different calibers.what'd the target look like, m o a b???
I don't have my calculator with me, but my impression is that you are way more than a bit overloaded. At least .5 grain too much for safety. Sharp edges around the firing pin indent is at the edge in my opinion.So. Turns out that all isn't as rosie as I had first thought.
This past weekend I spent some time prepping brass for it's return to ammo status and I found these
I was also testing Blue Dot powder and might have over done it just a little bit.
The results above come from my 357 tests using 11 grains of Blue Dot and a 124 grain projectile. I better keep under 11 in the future when using Blue Dot in 357.
You're absolutely right Flash. I used "alternate sources" and found them to be less than safe.
