After overdriving the Lyman RN and SWC Pentas in the HP Test Tube Test 6, I am looking to increase BHN of the cast so that the HP does not over-expand or fragment. I want to drive it hard at 960fps+ and get maximum penetration in the gel testing. Here I am exploring a binary […]
In the video 'The 805 Box & The Tricorne HP' , the first HP RN Tricorne fired into the box was a fail...today I turn that fail into a success and talk about 'how I fixed it & why it failed'?
We had a fail with the ‘Tricorne’ in the jugs and I believe it was the small area of the 3 sided HP cavity being plugged by the plastic carton … maybe so maybe no, but this time I plugged the ‘Quad’ HP with Silicone…it’s ‘Controlled Expansion’ working at its best.

How fast can I push the SWC Quad HP in the 1911 Commander before the HP comes apart? Answer, I can’t go fast enough staying under Plus P pressures but it is an impressive performer.

I like shooting clay birds. Here we are trying a new load. I hit only 2 birds. The first was hit on the second shot. The second on the first shot. The third was laying flat with only the edge facing me after the first shot. It was never hit. Creeker

My thoughts on one gun you should own. A 1911 is an American Classic with the classic .45 ACP round. Plus, you can’t go wrong with a John Browning design. Jesse B OutdoorsGuns, Gear, Knives, and Outdoors. These are some of my favorite things besides my family.
If you recall my last article, I had too much expansion of a HP due to the softness, due to the low BHN of the boolit metal I used. The Penta over-expanded and came right to the edge of losing its weight from the soft lead shearing off the edges of the mushroom. This reminded […]
