Pressure testing ?


January 2, 2004, 06:46 PM
Is there a lab out there that will allow a person to send handloads to be pressure tested? I've got some 9x23 loads I'd like to see about.

I know JD Jones's SKS Industries does pressure testing. No idea what the cost would be though.

You could use Dane's whoosy loads, or my hot loads for the 9x23mm, or something in between.

I'm usuing a load close to the ones you sent me but was just curious where I was at.

Yes, but for the life of me I don't immediately remember who; recent, too.

John K,
Thanks, I was unable to retrieve that location in my worn out brain.

So the head bottle washer at Handloads.Com is here in Western WA?
I live on Mercer Island's tough South end where the rats are big and the dogs are mean.

You are always so positive.... I want to switch to your brand of coffee.

Maybe that's the trick Clark - no coffee :) Whatever brand my parents drank when I was growing up was so foul I never developed a taste for the stuff.

I'm just a tad NE of you, up near Duvall - but I work just across the water from Mercer Island in Bellevue.

I built a home on acrage [with windows that opened in the correct direction for shooting] North of Monroe and lived there in the 80's and 90's.

When I would leave work in the Bellevue/Redmond area electronics companys, I would only be half way home when I went through Duvall.

Just North of Duvall there is Cherry Creek pheasant release site. I have had some fun there:)
