What's the verdict on these bullets.  From too fast to too slow, are these bullets just right?  Or am I wasting my time and should stick with 125 or 147?

135s are for people that want to be friends with everyone but are, in fact, friends with no one.

In my heart of hearts I think 147s put steel down a little better than 124s at the same power factor.

I'm influenced by this belief 147's need to be going over 9XX for accuracy.  And I do some outlaw, steel type stuff with no PF and just wondering about running these in the 900 fps range and how they might perform.  Or maybe 124's that slow.  I really don't know.

 

Not really needing a "magic bullet" but if I can save a .10 of powder, drop a few FPS; since I don't have to make PF I might as well give it a try...

If you are worried about a dimes worth of powder you might want to reconsider this hobby.

They work and you get more per case for the same price than the 147s. 

The 124s are cool. The 135s are cool. even the 160s are cool.

Stupid logic. Heavier bullets cost more. Although you use less powder with heavy pills, your total per round round cost is higher.

If you want cheap, learn to pour lead.

First time on a reloading board?

i just don’t get why someone will drop $2k on a press but worry about a $.02 primer. I sweep up and trash live primers and fresh powder all the time. The components are the cheapest part

Looking for a little better, something new, is part of it. 

 

FWIW I bought a few thousand 135's to try out.  I do just fine with 147's but why not. 

 

I don't have to worry about PF so why run 140pf if I don't have too.  If I can shoot less and it still performs, why not.  Maybe 135's will get me there.

I’ve run over 10,000 each of 124, 135, and 147. Probably triple that, but I’ll understate things here to ensure validity.

I go back and forth on whether it mattered or if I learned anything from this or not.

I know I heavily prefer 124s through heavier steel guns, but go back and forth on whether there’s an advantage in plastic ones.

Which probably means there isn’t.

I will definitely say this. In fifteen years of loading every powder and primer under the sun... guys loading for power factor are idiots.

Load for maximum accuracy. Often this puts your PF at 133-139ish. Fuck it, and run it.

It’s hilarious how many guys are content with 3-4” groups at 25 just because they think it feels soft. And that this is some kind of advantage.

Are you going to shoot 150 PF if it gives you .5 groups at 25 yards over 130 PF that gives you 1" groups.  No.

 

It all matters...  People that say it doesn't matter, be it guns, ammo or shoes are full of shit unless they are winning with a Ruger All American and Keds and shooting +p ammo.

Doesn't matter how much you've shot, only how good you shoot and what you've won.

You are a dick.  Memphis, in a round about sort of way, was just trying to answer your question.  

 

This thread is dumb.  Your questions are dumb.  Your reaction to Doodies trying to answer your dumb questions is dumb.  I'm pretty sure that none of us give any fucks which bullet you shoot.

 

Now EABOD and GTFO.


No one likes me, and I don't care.

STFU retrard.  MM can take care of himself.

 

Maybe you're new, but forums are where people ask questions.  I asked about 135's. I had never shot them before, So what.

 

MM trolled weak and I gave him a taste. 

 

Stop being the problem.

FWIW I loaded up 3.0 of Clays and ended up a cool 121 PF and ran my stock Glock 17 just fine.  I'll probably bump it a tenth or two and load up the whole case of bullets.  Not a magic bullet but definitely an option.
