Some of you may remember the thread I started last month: http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1157726 I was concerned with the accuracy of my Solo 1000 reloads out of my G-17. The results from some test comparisons verified that my load of 3.4gr of S-1000 was indeed VERY inaccurate. I compared my reload against WWB 115gr stuff, and I could punch the center of the target with the WWB, my stuff looked like a shotgun. Chrono results showed that was only yielding 847fps, which is not even 125PF. I created some loads with 3.6gr, 3.7gr, and 3.8gr of S-1000... I've decided I'm going to "run" the 3.8gr. Here are the numbers: Date: 1/1/2010 Temp: 45 degrees Brass: CCI Primers: CCI Bullet: 147gr Montana Gold OAL: 1.137" HV: 920 LV: 881 AV: 896 ES: 39 SD: 14 This yields 131PF. The accuracy has GREATLY IMPROVED! This is what I've been looking for. Note: These numbers for S-1000 are WAY "off the chart" by the books, but reload info is scant for the S-1000. I shot multiple batches across the chrono, even shooting some of the WWB 115gr stuff as a "baseline" to insure that then numbers I was getting for that matched up with what others reported. I'm confident that my chrono numbers are good, and it does indeed take 3.8gr to push it fast enough so that's really accurate. But if you're shooting a G34, it will probably take much LESS than this for the same results. I also shot some Black Bullets (moly-coated lead). I got great results from them, with .3gr less of powder. I'd LOVE to shoot them more as they're much cheaper... but they're just too smoky for me. I shoot at an indoor range, and while they smoked less than the "moly-less" lead I tried once... they still smoke too much for me. So I guess I'll be sticking to the MG for now. Sorry for the crappy picture, but that is just over a 1.5" group. I flinched one there, but basically one ragged hole. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
