I felt like some of my hotter loads were battering the frame some, switched to the silver and no more problems with that. The slide was coming back pretty hard.

Well maybe I just leave it in. I just won't ever clean it again! Lol.

So yesterday I cleaned the GP. Has anyone noticed that the gun with the rotating barrel seems to stay much cleaner or is it my imagination?

Anyway, I reassembled it on the first try this time, and it was quick and easy. I'm going to try it again this weekend and if I still have the same result I will document the steps and post it.

Mine came home pretty dirty the last time out, using mostly power pistol loads.

I've shot a ton of powder pistol, but have been shooting Lovex Heavy Pistol lately. Replica of AA #9, great powder. I find it performs better for me on heavy loads, especially using 200 grains bullets.

Don't tell people about the Lovex aka Shooters World . . . it's super secret.
Everyone I tell about Lovex/Shooters World powder seems to think I'm trying to get them to drink Billy Beer. Oh well, more for us.

Shortly after that post, I was at our rental house (April 24th) and was attacked by the ex renters 2 pitbulls. My arms were both very mauled and it took me months before I was able to even shoot a 9mm again. The point is, I haven't shot the Grand Power in so long I can't remember how it was that I got it so quickly together. Once I figure it out again, I will post :)
