My club has its first pin shoot this Sunday. I have settled on 10.0grs Bluedot under my home cast, home powder coated 180s. I'll give you boys an after action report if I can remember!!!! Anybody in SE Missouri is welcome to come on down and shoot with us. It's at 67 Gunclub outside of Farmington Mo.

Pins were/are my first love as far as competition goes.  Curious to hear how your 10mm does.  What kind of times are you shooting with your 45's?  Shooting like your pic shows, at my best, I was a mid 3 sec shooter consistently and my best time was a 2.39.

That's pretty good shooting!!! I assume the rules were the same? Pins are a foot from the front of the table, pins must be off the table not just knocked over. If you knock them down you must keep shooting till they are off the table. I run 4-5 seconds a table on a good day. This is usually good enough to win the class. No optics or compensators allowed.

Well I'm happy to say that my new 10mm pin load works very well. It easily drives the pins the three feet required to leave the table. I ended up taking first place in the .45 class with the new 10mm load.

Congrats on your win and a winning load.

Yup, same rules and pin setups.  Those results were 6-8 years ago (as I stated "at my best") and I'll never be that good again......slower reflexes, aging eyes, injured/surgery on my non shooting hand doesn't allow as good a support anymore.  Now I'm prob closer to a non-consistent 6-8 second shooter on a good day, but haven't shot pins in 4+ years (nobody has a pin comp anymore.....though I'd love to find it again). My 45 loads were with a 255lswc at close to +P loads out of a SA Longslide.

I used heavy bullets in my Kimber .45 as well. I sure do like the way the 10mm performed today. I think the Kimber is retired as far as pins are concerned.
