  A couple more 300 Blackout handloads.
Posted by: TN.Frank - 12-09-2017, 03:43 AM - Forum: Defense - Replies (7)

Gave two more new hand loads a try today and I kind of have mixed feelings about em'. While velocity was better with the 150gr FMJ accuracy wasn't what I had hoped for. The 168gr was kind of a disappointment too.  I'd really had high hopes for it since it was a Match bullet but accuracy wasn't all that great either. Anyway, enjoy the vid and I'll talk to ya'll later.

Don't throw away good bones. "Recycle" them! I'm going to experiment with deer bones. Trying to make use of the whole animal.

  Remington UMC 9mm 115 JHP in a short barrel

Remington UMC 9mm: Good enough for self defense?

Terminal Ballistics Testing Remington UMC 9MM 115 Grain JHP

I'm issued the 124+P Gold Dot for off-duty carry.  And I have it in all of the HD guns as well.  However, I've been considering an option for my wife.  As I mentioned in the .22 rifle for HD thread, she is recoil sensitive due to a disability and carpel tunnel.  She simply can't take the warmer loads.  As such it limits her shooting experience when using warmer rounds.  Particularly if she's using her CCW which is currently a Taurus PT709 Slim.  The 124+P GD barks with some authority in that shorter/lighter gun.

Wallyworld always has both the WWB 147 JHP (can't seem to find the 115 JHP offering in WWB) and the Remington UMC 115 JHP.  The Rem comes in the 100 round value pack for just under $30.  This is a standard pressure load that seems to work just fine out of the short (around 3 inch barrel) pocket 9mm's.  We plan on going shooting next Monday so I bought a box today for us to test out in her gun.  Also want to test it out in the Ruger LC9 I just got.  I would load it with the 124+P GD (providing it functions well) but have the back up mag filled with the Rem (again, providing it works well).  

Seems to get 12 inches of penetration and still expand out of a 3 inch barrel, even through 2 layers of cloth.  Average velocity out of the 3 inch barrel was just a tad over 1000 fps.  For Florida, even winter the two layer testing is probably sufficient.  At any rate it should be softer shooting that what she has now which in turn should be better for practice and follow up shots.

Monday will tell the tale.
