My shooting buddy Dan "gifford" has a very nice 45 cal T/C Patroit. We went
shooting yesterday and I got a little video. He shoots 15 grs of Goex BP.

I really like shooting my Patriot. Now I'll have to get one like your repeater. I watched the video for several minutes, and I didn't see the shooter reload a single time. He must have gotten off 15-20 rounds without a hitch. I must not be doing something quite right.:cool:

Double deuce: That's the Hollywood model, same as they use in the movies. :-)

Yep, I like the Patriot a lot. Elegant lines, accurate and a lot of fun to shoot. G

Very cool pistol. It's a T/C so the quality is excellent.

But why the seemingly light 15-grain load? T/C recommends 30 grains of FFFG for best accuracy. I'm not being critical here, just curious.

Jason - yes, it's a very light load, not my usual load, I usually shoot 20 grains. The T/C Patriot has an unfortunate tendency to crack it's stock; various shooters have theorized it is the result overtightening the lock bolt, overcharging it by using more than 20-25 grains, or a design flaw in the stock or a combination thereof to name a few I've heard.

I'm hoping to keep it shooting for a while longer so I stick with 20 grains. I did shoot that load unusually well it at the last FOML club shoot, with three 10X and 1 10 at 50 yards.
