Re: Cast Bullets Keyholing

9mm jacketed bullets are .355 https://www.speer-ammo.com/products/bullets/handgun-bullets/tmj-handgun-bullet/3995 https://www.sierrabullets.com/product/9-mm-355-115-gr-jhp/ and so on. You're right Texas. That's what I reload jacketed with. I claim senior moment. Ha. But we do have options. Armscor ...

Re: Cast Bullets Keyholing

.356 cast won't work in most 9s. .356 is what jacketed bullets are sized to. I cast and size to .357 for my Canik. I cast some to.358 I want to try when I get time.

Re: Buy it cheap, stack it deep

I cast my lead bullets and buy my jacketed ones. I have noticed that Rotometals has raised their lead prices, (I was buying foundry lead and mixing it with soft lead to make Lyman #2), and not as many good hard lead deals on ebay. Clip on wheel weights are about a thing of the past now. Get em while...

Re: bore diameter?

Yep. I'm reloading 358-125-RF bullets. I tried them 358 and 357. Squeezed 357 with 3gr 700x or 5 grains of Longshot, oal 1.017. 45-45-10 lube. Longshot has the edge on the 700x but they both shoot great. Longshot having the softer recoil. I tried CFE with 4.8gr being the best for a group but not tha...

Re: Looking to upgrade my sigle stage press.

I have a Rock Chucker I got over 30 yrs ago To load 308 and 357. You can't break it. It was slow but relaxing for me. Then I picked up a coupla semi auto pistols. So much for relaxation. Then the Piggyback came out. I kept my eye on it for some time thinking I should get it for the Rock Chucker. The...

Re: Firearms want list...

I was looking at a SW M2.0 but bought the SF instead. I still want the M2.0.
Speaking of wheel guns, it jogged my memory. I do have a 50th anniversary 357 Ruger Blackhawk from CDNN. It's still in its red plastic case. I never did shoot it. Prolly never will be worth much.

Re: bore diameter?

Thanks NWcg2. I'm a CB member, but never found that post. I pour and load for some of my military rifles and thought I would find an accurate cast load for my new Canik. I sold my SW 59 to pay for the Canik. That old 59 was a sprayer. I decided to go with .358 with the TPSF. I did run some sized .35...

Luv'n my TP9SF

Hey all! I bought the Canik TP9SF recently and am duly impressed!
I reload and am interested in what other Canik owners found what it takes for an accurate load. So I will be a frequent visitor on this site.
