    Stopped raining long enough for me to run to the club and chrono a bunch of rounds. One of the calibers was 30 rounds of 10mm with brand new starline brass. I came home with... 30 cases! The stars were aligned for me today!

    My Glock 20 sends brass into low orbit, so I'm grateful to get them back.

    Was shooting a new S.A. range officer and the pistol bays have screening between them. More than one bounced off the wire and smacked me in the head.
    I have a Sig 1911 with the external extractor. It slings brass everywhere.

    The one thing I hate about a semi-auto.

    So, what did the Chromo tell you about your loads?

    Yes you should go and get a lottery ticket tonight and take full adavantage. When I rake the Mini out the range I go to has a net system that attaches to the bench.
    My G29 flings empties into the next county.

    Yep. No ejection problem here either. Always find my brass

    I hang up a cheap blue Harbor Freight tarp to keep my brass from going into the next county. It works.

    At my indoor range I make sure to step back 2 steps while still keeping the muzzle well within the side shields. Most all of the G20 brass bounces off the shield and over my head. But there are usually a few that make it into my forehead.

    10mm - pushing a 180gr. coated at 1178 fps average with 9.2 grains of HS-6, hottest load I had. No signs of over pressure. The S.A. RO shots 10mm very nicely.
    My 9mm, 115gr. coated with WST are fast for steel challenge, and dropping the charge is working... not as expected. 5.0 grains averaged 1120fps, 4.8 grains averaged 1132fps! 4.6 grains dropped to 1089fps average. Still cycled the slide of my G34. Will be trying 4.4 and 4.2 grain next.
    My 223 loads with H335 need B12 shots. 2558fps average!
