    Yup.

    I have seen the slide out run the mag a few times with hot stuff. That happens when you get outside the designed operating envelope. +P is solidly in that envelope, and Super is borderline at...

    Poor design.

    Should be drifting forward, not back into your face.

    I'd not shoot in a facility as you describe. It's not safe.

    I was thinking Hot Cor, not Uni Cor.

    I'm a bullet collector - I have boxes of lathe turned Partitions, Zippedos, and some Hornadys punched out of 22LR empties (pet peeve - every time I hear...

    Huh. I thought "Uni Cor" was a soldered core. That bullet has all the hallmarks of a tumble-electroplated swaged lead core.

    I love GDs.

    Gray needs to be lumped in there too, as a SME on 1911s anyway.

    That was my mistake.

    Terminal ballistics and scientific correlation. Seems somewhat paradoxical to me.

    I have a beater TLE that I've....well beaten on quite a bit. And loaned out.

    When I got it, I junked the swartz, changed the extractor to a BP, and the ejector, reamed the chamber, and it runs...

    From those pictures, I see nothing I would worry about. Though, not the best pictures ever.

    I don't see any peening of the lugs. The gouges look like machining marks to me.

    This was one seriously messed up chunk of metal.

    I'm in a precarious position, as I have inside knowledge of a few of those, and I don't want to be the one that makes things public knowledge.

    I like 16# springs, flat bottom FPS, and as heavy a mainspring as I can find. With todays sears and hammers, no need to go light unless you are shooting a 9mm.

    Nope. 15 ft seems a touch long, and is indicative of excessive slide velocity IMO.

    True, this is way, way, w a y out in the weeds.

    I disagree. I've timed more than a couple of my WCs. Because it irritates me. Like ants crawling on my skin.
