SWC

Saturday was the first local rifle club’s action pistol shoot of 2013. Out of the 105 rounds my 1911 cycled, three failed to feed correctly, resulting in the marks seen on the bullets pictured.

I loaded these rounds using 185 grain Semi-Wad Cutters, a versatile bullet great for target shooting, hunting, or self defence.

102 successful shots out of 105 might not seem too bad, but three times I had to stop shooting and clear a malfunctioning gun. Out of five other participants also shooting in the Single Stack category, I came in fourth.

The solution as told to me by one of the old timers who attends these matches is to use a cast bullet made with an H&G 68 mold, which produces a 200 grain bullet.

I may test that solution once the remaining 300 185 grain bullets are gone, and assuming I can actually find such a specific component any time soon.
