Re: Cast Bullets Keyholing

In my TP9SA, poly coated has been the way to go. No more keyholing. Tested a 125 gr RN poly coat bullet from Gallant Bullets in Utah. Shot that bullet over Unique and 231 with fairly good preliminary results.

Re: TP9SFX back strap size

The larger backstrap definitely makes a difference. It's not any thicker/wider, but makes the "hump" on the back of the grip higher. I installed the larger size on mine, and ran with it for a few weeks, then swapped the smaller size back on. Found that I vastly preferred the smaller size. I came to...

Re: New Member from Pennsylvania

The "House Admiral" and I have been married 40 years, 11 months and 1 day; next time I'm renting. Ownership is highly overrated. And I've noticed all "the wife's" have the same first name, "Dear". "Yes dear".... Disclaimer : If my wife reads this, "I love you DEAR! " I usually use the term of endea...

Re: Mobile 1 Lube for TP9SA

Shell Rotella 15w-40 synthetic diesel oil on all my 3gun firearms and all the other firearms as well. I've used it for years from 0F-90F with no issues. No corrosion issues ever but I live in a high dry climate where corrosion isn't much of an issue unless you get snow on your tactical bolt gun and...

Re: Practice Ammo

When I'm not reloading, I shoot Federal bulk 115 gr. My TP9SA loves that ammunition and its point of impact is identical to my 124 gr HP handload. My TP9SA is an early model and has had at least 2500 rounds thru it to date.

Welcome from central Georgia. I know what you mean. My 1911 has been collecting dust in my safe since I got my TP9SA in March.

Re: Barrel question?

I don't know if this will help you but, I had problems with cast bullets shooting in my TP9SA, keyholing and leading, so in desperation I gave 124 grain poly coated bullets a try and that solved my problems. accuracy is pretty good considering plain cast were all over the target frame.

Re: Sfx groupings

Mt TP9SA has a preference for 1125 FMJ Federal Bulk ammo. Shoots that load into less than 2" at 25 yards. My 115 grain XTP load with Longshot has shot as tight as 1.2" but the norm is just under 2" at 25 yards. Cast bullets won't shoot better than 3" in my pistol for some reason.

Re: Cast Bullets Keyholing

I retested the 3.8 grain load with Unique powder and a Bayou Bullets 124 grain poly coat RN. 25 rounds yielded a 3.5" group average at 25 yards. Smallest group was 2.1" and the largest was 4.8"" Not a bad practice load on steel.

Re: First time with TP9SA

I agree. The slide stop is a pain to engage when locking back the slide w/o a mag in place. Other than that, it's one helluva pistol!
