    I am going to take and really appreciate your recommendation and should be good on powder for the rest of the year.

    Thanks again for the help. I have found your comments here and on another forum that you may or may not be a member of very educational.

    My last load with CSB-1
    - 135gr 9mm: 3.4gr @ < 1.110” COAL for 129 Power Factor.
    - 124gr 9mm: 3.8gr @ < 1.130” COAL for 127 PF

    My (only) load with CSB-1M
    - 124 gr for 9mm was 3.8gr @ < 1.125” COAL for 128 PF

    Thanks - I just got that jug of CSB-1 recently on a local "powder garage sale".

    Now we just need the @GuanoLoco list of approved powders and primers- like the Ammo list from DocGKR

    Checked with the range training officer- coated bullets are good to go! The FAQ’s say no “painted” rounds- I know the difference between coating and paint but figured I’d double check. The “paint” is for no green tips- which I figured.

    Essential equipment for quality control in any kind of volume. It takes a while to accumulate the ‘stuff’ for this hobby.

    The Hundo is awesome. I did make any new rounds this week- but did case gauge some I have.
    Planning to work up some dummy rounds during the week for dry fire training.

    Plan to use up my one pound of 231 with the 124gr Everglades bullets.

    Looks like 4.0-4.2 grains is about right. Now I just need to buy a chrono.

    Tested out the Win 231 today. Wasn’t thinking but used 4.1 grains for 115gr round nose. No issues- went through my PX4 easily enough.

    Paging @GuanoLoco but thinking about working up more rounds with the Everglades 124gr RN. Using 4.4gr for 124gr RN should be about right, do I throw 50 or so rounds up next or since my testing batch was a bit off work less and make sure I’m good.

    Definitely would like to get cranking on rounds today.
