Tarosean was the host for the last shoot in Madisonville.

thank you T-man!

Boomer, Blaster and I are up for one anywhere.  There's a prize for anyone shooting Boomer with the suppressor on  :afraid4:

Well as the old saying goes " I'll will try anything once".LOL.
It can't be any worse than my M44 carbine.

would like to see another "shoot" up in Madisonville (this time without the I 45 construction and "damp" weather and the food poisoning I got recently from the Madisonville Buc-ee's) - it's been so long that I forgot who the sponsor was.....

Very nice .
Been looking for something like that for the wife as she has a heck of a time trying to rack the slide on a semi auto.
With a revolver and speed loaders  I think she would be good to go.

Hey welcome aboard.
I also like the CZ line of firearms as  my EDC is a Rami with 14 rd mags.

K-Texas thanks for your input as I will do a little more research on this.

Ammunition / New ammo to try
« on: May 04, 2018, 01:49:01 PM »
In my may issue Rifleman I saw some ammo called NovX that might work out for me as new self defense ammo instead of
for info go to and also midwayusa sells it .
Has anyone else heard of this ammo or tried some?

Ammunition / Re: 9mm 115 Gr.HP
« on: May 03, 2018, 06:35:23 PM »
well today I fired 50 aggravating rounds of the new Independence  9mm HP and all did not go well from the start.
This is the first time I have fired hollow points in this pistol a CZ rami with 14 rd mags.
I loaded 4 mags  ,first mag in pistol , pulled slide to load and did not go into battery and had to push on slide to seat the first round.
fired 5 rds. and same thing, 2 more and the same thing.
This went on threw 4 mags and I said the heck with it .
I never had any type of problems with FMJ so I guess my CZ just doesn't like hollow points.
The only good point with this ammo is fired very clean .
Now it may work in some other models  but not in mine.
Going to get with my daughter and test it out in some of her 9mm and see if it works in hers.

Apologies for posting on an older thread, but anytime you try a new load you should give it the "plunk" test. Remove the barrel from the pistol, muzzle pointed down and drop a round in the chamber. You should hear an audible "plunk." if you don't, the load may be too long for the chamber. Your malfunctions made me suspicious. Also, if the round "plunks" it should spin freely in the chamber while the case rim should be flush or just barely below the barrel hood.

I don't have any experience with the RAMI, but I do with other CZ75s and clones. I loved the P-01 I had, but it wouldn't take my longer handloads. I don't own any CZ75s in 9mm only because of that and have actually been tempted to get a Canik, to see how they're chambered.

There is also a possible danger here. Rounds that don't go completely into battery can raise pressure to potentially dangerous levels! And I'm not just picking on CZs here. The new Glock 17 & 19 gen 5s are boasting about their new "Marksman" barrels. My shooting partner has carried a G19 for years and still owns 2 Gen 2s. We got curious and did some investigating. Turns out that Glock has gone to shorter chambers with the Gen 5 9 x 19mms. Not a good thing in my book, particularly not for a handloader. The idea is that by shortening the chamber, you shorten the distance of bullet "jump" to the lands of the barrel. The much better method is to use longer loads but many gunmakers have gone to the chamber shortening route.

FMJ is typically not a problem because the curved profile of the bullet (ogive) is longer and narrower. In essence, the SAAMI spec for maximum overall cartridge length of 1.169" now only applies to RN FMJ and maybe not even with them. These are the Einsteins that are supposed to keep us safe thru standardization. If the Independence 115 gr. JHP had a bulbous looking ogive where the curved area of the bullet was mainly closer to the nose, that could have been the problem combined with the RAMIs chamber. :icon_wink:

Thanks for the info on what to look for as I'am going to try out some Hornady HP's when I get the chance.
Also to me the ramp up to the chamber is  kind of steep to me and maybe that's why the rounds aren't going in properly.

I like that shotgun. :th_thicon_idea:


The next time I go to an outdoor range I'm bringing the Yeti tumbler along and placing it at the 100 yd. marker. I'll probably hammer it with my M 48 8 mm or Enfield .303 Brit. I was thinking about sending Yeti a photo of my marksmanship but during these sensitive times they might consider that a threat. I'll probably just post it here for all to see.

Would you like some Tannerite to go with that drink sir?  :scream3:
