Making Heavy 160gr Subsonic 9mm Ammo (Casting, Reloading, & Shooting)

For today's video we do a little casting, powder coating, reloading, and finally shooting for some 160 gr heavy subsonic ammo.  For the casting portion, I utilize the NOE 358-155-TC-AS5 bullet mould which was designed with a longer tapered nose to allow long seating bullet--which in turn leaves plenty of space inside the 9mm case for powder. I shoot the ammo in a few different suppressed firearms including my 9mm AR15 and glock 19. A very quiet, but hard-hitting subsonic load which smacks the steel quite nicely.

Our Stewardship

Today I would like to make us all think about a few things that are important to me. In life, we don’t really get to “keep” anything. We are here for a while and then we are gone. If we don’t intentionally invest time and effort into passing along the things we know and believe […]

RCBS Powder Trickler-2 Review

RCBS Powder Trickler-2 Review

After looking at all of the powder tricklers on the market (except the Lyman Brass Smith that wasn't released yet) I settled on the RCBS Powder Trickler 2. This was because it was quality built, very sturdy, weighty, adjustable height, extendable tube and threaded tube.
