Federal Hi-Skor 155 gr JHP Pull-Down
« on: September 07, 2013, 03:24:56 PM »
Cartridge is from Ammo Manufacture: Federal Hi-Skor 155gr JHP

Muzzle Velocity: “?” fps
Muzzle Energy: “?” ft. lbs
Brass Make/Headstamp: Federal FC - Brass
Bullet Make/Weight/Construction/Info; Length 0.5535”/Dia. 0.4000”: 155gr JHP
Actual weigh 154.4 grains  Crimp Diameter 0.3920”
HP depth  HP 0.1660” / HP dia. (tapered inside) / mouth 0.2500”
C.O.A.L.: 1.2490” / 1.2490”

Case: Diameter 0.4205” Crimp Diameter 0.4170” (heavy crimp)Length 0.9875”
Powder Description/Positive ID/Type/Charge Weight: Power Pistol 8.4 grains











Here is something that you don't see without good magnification of the powders you are looking at...These greenish specks don't show up in regular Power Pistol Powder that I've seen.  However they are in this sample of powder from the Federal Hi-Skor.
I am wondering if this could be a very new loading using the NEW BE-86 powder that Alliant has listed recently!
Just something that comes to mind...BTW look at the color of the writing on the label.

Power Pistol huh. On the discontinued tab, almost 1300 FPS.

I doubt it because these have been discontinued for a decent amount of time.

I understand that these rounds were discontinued some time ago, but this powder could have been a non canister powder at the time.  BE-86 is being released to the public in the near future...Just a speculation on my part.  ???

The powder for these Federal was Power Pistol and not BE-86.
Just for the record here is a picture of BE-86
