HP TT Test 7 ‘Confusion’

Some times, trying to speed up a cast HP takes you out in Left Field where you are unsure, less confident in just adding more powder and going for it…that’s where we are at today. ‘Safety First’…having to ‘STOP’ and look the facts and empirical evidence over and do some ‘Serious Mulling’! Here’s what I […]

HP Test Tube – Test 7 ‘Stumbling Blocks’ part 1

Things are getting a little more complicated as I am needing higher BHN lead without using massive amounts of Tin and needing higher velocities where there are no load tables but QuickLOAD.

Testing 357 Hand Loads

Lakeviewoutdoors and I test 357 hand loads using the Ruger GP100 and the Henry Big Boy X. We experiment with the Hornady 358-148 HBWC using them as hollow points. Jerry 19112A On A Budget

JugBusting 5 Testing a Harder HP

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 […]

HP TT T6 ‘GRENADES’

Our first look at the Penta HP for the first time in an original Lyman RN 452374 & SWC 452460 mould. An easy HP cavity to open at lower velocities but in this test they are driven to the maximum standard pressure speed. Ultimately looking for the deepest penetration possible in 10% gel blocks in […]

JugBusting 3 SWC Quad

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.

HP Test Tube T5 ‘EXTREMES’

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.

HP TT T4 Addendum 1

After this last test I needed another 50 fps, I reached out for help & Eli aka ‘Mr.Revolverguy‘ & Julio aka ‘ocean374‘ came to my rescue with their ‘QuickLOAD’ programs. We discovered that the Power Pistol is more than adequate to do the job and then some, leaving me room on the top end for […]

HP Test Tube T4 RN ‘Quad’

Today we find the ‘lower speed limit’ that defines one side of the ‘window of expansion’…a term I’ve coined to describe the upper and lower ‘speed limits’ for any particular Hollow Point design and the bullet metal used.
