Welcome to the club. I've been in trouble more than once because someone who didn't know me took me seriously.
Another ammunition manufacturer is using RMR jacketed bullets - https://www.facebook.com/rmrbullets/photos/a.164961740263755/2361355770624330/?type=3&theater
"One of our awesome ammo manufacturer customers tested our 115 grain mini-MPR in ballistics Gel with a rack of ribs in the middle. Not only did they penetrate the ribs, but they had full expansion and held together awesomely."
9mm +P 115 grain Hollow Point
1,275 Feet Per Second
Gel had a set of pork ribs inserted in it.
I LOVE THESE ROUNDS!!! All three test rounds penetrated the ribs completely. Each round had Full expansion and worked Perfectly! Not a lot of fragments or shrapnel either.
I recommend these to anyone with a 9mm rated for +P ammunition!!! Great rounds!!"
Jake, what happened here ?? (115’s) jagged edged jackets.
Nothing like the batch of 124’s I received previously.
Shot a lot of 8’s at 50yds at PPC regional, recently. I claim the 7’s..
Not what I expected. I was surprised by this.
I today received some 124gr MPR’s. They look MUCH better....
It’s not worth sending the 115’s back. I’ll use them for short line practice (7-15yds’s).
Just wanted you to know these escaped the plant.
We tested the accuracy of the 115s with our shop PCC that seems to love 115s. We were shooting ground squirrels past 50 yards with them so I know they are accurate so long as the gun likes them.
While I like W231/HP-38, I have gotten smaller groups with other powders like Titegroup, Target, Bullseye, BE-86, etc.
This is from my recent testing with RMR 115 gr FP MW (I will be continuing the accuracy testing with Range Test #4 next) - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/reloading-projects-for-retirement-happy-4th-of-july-independence-from-work.853305/page-3#post-11212458
No Glock 22 and KKM 40-9mm conversion barrel with Fab Defense Universal Scope Mount and 2-7x32 scope on Caldwell rest (Bottom of trigger guard was rested not bottom of rail) at 25 yards - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/reloading-projects-for-retirement-happy-4th-of-july-independence-from-work.853305/page-3#post-11211204
I am currently working up accurate pistol loads to participate in the August-September 2019 most popular LEO autoloader 10 shot challenge but don't you worry, PCC testing of 115 gr FP Mini MW and 115 gr Mini MPR along with 95 gr FMJ will commence shortly at 25/50 yards.
I am having technical issue of mount getting loose on Glock's polymer rail that is flexible and hence have been looking to convert my railed Sig 1911 XO to 9mm for more consistent mount for optics but currently examining different options - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/reloading-projects-for-retirement-happy-4th-of-july-independence-from-work.853305/page-3#post-11200576
I had that same mount and it simply would not stay put on an XDm. I bought this one from IMI as recommended by a THR member and it is rock solid on the same gun.
I am noticing that IMI mount has two screws instead of one screw of Fab Defense/Mako USM. That may be the reason for greater stability.
Just placed an order on Amazon prime and will see how it does with heavier scope.
I added a second screw to it and it still moved on me.
Hopefully rock solid.
I suggested it to Walkalong when he mentioned having issues with the one he had.since it worked for me.
Works well on my P226.and XD.
(P226 sights won't clear underneath it so I have to remove it to pull the slide to clean, minor pain but no big deal)
Price is right as well.
Of course not a racy looking as the other mount, but it works well.
OK back to OP of ELEY using RMR "match" bullets.
Their testing and measurements showed very consistent .001" OAL variance which correlates with my experience, even with mixed range brass - https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/myth-busting-pre-resized-brass-affect-on-oal-variance-progressive-press.833604/page-2#post-10779806
And produced 25 yard average group size of 1"
