(End Of Data)

I like both these loads, but lean toward the 12.2 Grains of Longshot. It seems to be a little more consistent. That being said, there is nothing like the Blue Dot FLASH! Thanks to Meathead, Kegs, The Shadow for great data/input!

I am puzzled by the Longshot, in that it seemed to get faster as my barrel heated up? (Notice the last string of data with earlier strings.) Any ideas?

Primers on both loads were flattening - headspace issues? No smilies, cracks, bulges noted. (I'll try and find the camera a take a couple of pix to post.) I use competition springs from Wolff - 4#Striker Spring and a 6#Trigger Spring with a 3.5 Lone Wolf Connector (same as the Ghost essentially). I was using a Glock stock steel striker and was having a few misfires. I changed-out my steel striker for a Lightning Strike Striker to hopefully correct the problem. (Spoke with Dan at Lone Wolf and he said the 4# Spring just doesn't have the strength to push the weight of the steel striker.) If the Lightning Strike Striker (titanium) doesn't fix the problem, I'll go back to the 5.5# Glock stock striker spring.

The 12.2 Longshot was weighed twice for accuracy. It seems to have a good ES vs. the Blue Dot, but I didn't weigh the Blue Dot twice (an activity for another day). The Longshot meters well. I'll try and hit the range tomorrow. I've got some Blue Dot, 15 Grains, CCI 300 LP Primers and more of the 12.2 Grains of Longshot with CCI 350 LPM's to shoot. Want to confirm/fix trigger issue.
