  1. They are converting it to 460 Rowland and they seem to hold together.
  2. "we are considering selling the complete production run to one collector that is willing to pay us more than what we would get from the waiting distributors. His intentions are unknown. In fact, that first production run may never see US soil or any type of public consumption. Either way, all the first production run is spoken for, even if we deliver today or a year from now. So after stringing along all the loyal anxious customers he has the audacity to state this. Wow that is a new level of low!
  3. Just out of weird curiosity are either Dornaus or Dickson still alive? Just curious because you never hear any comments attributed to them about the current production. I certainly wish everyone luck in actually getting a gun from Vltor but so far there performance hasn't been very impressive.
  4. Its starting to look like Dornaus and Dixon again.
  5. Excellent job. Thank you for sharing and writing up the tutorial!
  6. Thank you. There's an idea I hadn't thought about. akraven
  7. No that is a 135gr Bullet on top of a ball. Thanks though! akraven
  8. I have been searching around trying to find if this load was ever tested in gelatin like the other DT's loads were? Can anybody point me to results? Thanks akaraven
  9. I thought about covering it up but thought it would look wierd having this shiny spot in a field of black Duracoat. I was hoping not to have deal with the officials if I didn't have to but won't do something illegal either. akraven
  10. I was thinking of duracoating my pistol frame. Looking it over the serial number is black electroetched on. It doesn't appear to be down deep in the metal. If I either rough up the surface or spray over it it will be gone. Anybody run into this and how can it be resovlved. Can a gunsmith restamp the numbers in another spot legally? I don't want a non serial numbered gun and get in trouble. Thanks for any help. akraven

  12. I have to echo that I have used Blue Dot extensively with 357 and 44 loads. I am relatively new to 10mm so I can't say I have that experience yet. It is a great reliable powder. akraven
  13. Thanks for the replies guys. I knew that the factory bullets say they are .400 but was surprised to mike them and find the were .398. I too use the ee factory die but it only tapers in the end of the reload and for my gun the .423 behind that crimp seems to be a problem. Thanks again. akraven
  14. I recently bought a batch of 200 TC cast bullets from a local caster and loaded them up. Had lots of problems getting them to feed. Upon investigating they had a hard time seating fully into the chamber. I miked the outside of the case and got .423. I checked my various factory ammo and they are all about .419. So I checked the bullets themselves. The cast were .400 while the various jacketed bullets I had were .398. All the factory ammo and jacketed bullet reloads work fine in my gun. Are you cast bullets shooters using .400 cast bullets or are they sized at .398? I know according to the spec's that the max case dia is .423 but maybe thats a little big for my gun? Thaks. akraven PS the gun is a Dan Wesson Pointman
  15. Having one that took 1911 would defintiyl be nice!!
