Reloading 10mm ammo / Re: 180 grain Longshot loads
« on: January 12, 2018, 01:15:39 PM »
Congrats Dave84.  I guess you've figured out that you have to back out the Lee bullet seating die.  And the Lee scale does take some getting used to, but is very accurate and results are repeatable.  We're the rounds fired out of your Witness accurate?  I've had an accuracy issue with a batch of 180gr X-Tremes recently.  What did you mean when you said that your G40 didn't like them?

They were pretty accurate. I had two of three rounds go into the same hole out of the witness. Shot about an inch higher than the s&b I brought.
My Glock with that barrel would stove pipe about half of the time but these were my very first rounds. I'm hoping my 2nd batch is a lot better.
What Shadow said about coal is probably right. Maybe they're a little longer than they should be. The Longshot load data I read called for 1.26 but they may be a little too long for reliability.

I loaded my first rounds this weekend. Setup wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. Instructions for the third die were incomplete I feel. Lol, my first round was pushed all the way into the case. Had two that were slightly short. Almost like .40s, so I used the bullet puller on them. The Lee scale is kind of weird. I've figured it out but 1890 can have it back. Have ordered an electronic scale. Loaded 27 up the night before the range. Somewhat different heights while I figured everything out. They had approx 8 to 8.3 grains of Longshot. Rounds functioned well out of my witness match. My Glock 40 didn't like many of them. Maybe they are slightly long for it, also I was running an alpha wolf barrel so it may be ultra tight. Loaded about 50 more when I got home. All at 1.255 with 8.6 grains.

I'm working with Longshot and 180 grain Xtreme heavy plated bullets. There is so much experience here. What is the powder range for this powder and bullet weight? I am loading at 1.255? Thanks for all the awesome advice!

Thanks for the great info. I'm pretty much just loading for the range although if I get it down very well I may load xtp's for defense. I plan on starting light and then working my way up on loads.

Nice! I too am at four. How does it feel in your hand?

What do you guys recommend for 180 grain and 200 grain projectiles? I've learned that most of you prefer cci primers and starline brass but I'm not sure what to get for the bullets.

I ended up getting the lee classic turret press. Sounds like it's the middle of the road and abgood way to get started.

Considering getting into reloading. Done some research and this thing if tuned correctly should be able to produce a high volume of 10mm at a reasonable cost. Have any of you used this press? Pros and cons please.

That's really great. How's the da/sa on these? Is it like the standard witness or is it more like sa trigger on the match on up? I had a standard one and still have my match.

I ended up getting the Ruger. Got it yesterday, haven’t even had a chance to shoot it yet.

You'll love your new Ruger. Mine is very accurate. Get plenty of rounds through her before you go hunting.
A seven inch 10mm barrel shooting full power loads will be impressive.

My witness match is just too big and currently not very reliable. My Ruger sr1911 is on the big end, not enough rounds, and no night sights. My Glock 40 although I enjoy the heck out of it is huge. My Glock 29 is a great compact size and it works every time. I shoot it the least accurately out of these but still quite decently. If size wasn't a constraint then the Glock 40 would come with me. These Glocks have upgrades too btw. I don't like Glock out of the box.

Anyone know of some reasonably priced 9 round 10mm 1911 magazines? I saw some at cheaper than gold but they were almost 50 bucks.

I love this gun. 1st time at the range it stove piped a few LAX reloads and wouldn't lock the slide back often. 2nd time it didn't fail whatsoever but wouldn't lock the slide back every time. I figured this gun isn't that broken in and I'm shooting light-mid power loads through it. My dad gave me a box of the Sig 10mm that he's had for about 2 years (I feel it was much stronger then than what they produce now). Not one failure of any kind, slide locked back EVERY time at the end of the mag.
This gun is very accurate. I of course shot better with it vs my Glock 19 but it also out shot my Ed Brown Special Forces which isn't easy to do. Trigger is quite nice although not the very best. Fit and finish are great. Looks very elegant. Sights are adjustable. Have your sights adjusted, do your part and you will not miss. Best 800 dollar gun I own. In my top 4 guns for sure. I believe its my most accurate out of all of them.
