First topic message reminder :

I was thinking about giving Brazos 9mm a try. Anyone have any experiences to share?

I tried and tried.  I couldn't get them to group.  The heavier bullets did do better, but in the end, jacketed bullets are the best.  115's barely hold the paper.  147's hold the 7 ring.  Hope you find something that works, but it might be a 45!  lol

I don’t think I’m going to purchase these same bullets again. Are brazos SWC 45 180gr bullets any good? I have a pending order with this and might cancel. I spent a month with these 115 gold bullets and have yielded poor results so far. I spent 5 minutes with some jacketed bullets and instantly achieved positive results.

Yes, the Brazos 180 gr 45 lswcs' are good bullets.  I use the flat base model.  I was using zero Jhps' at the long line, but now I use the Brazos 180s for everything.

Load them with WST powder and spend more time shooting and less time cleaning your gun.

Thanks for the insight, could you share some loads with brazos and WST?

With the 180s, I use 3.8 gr of WST for indoor practice and 25Y, and 4.0 gr at 50Y.  I use WLP primers, and have also use Fed 155 (mag) primers.

Seat to 0.92" measured at the bullet shoulder, and I crimp at about 0.466".

Using these ten Brazos 115 RN, I had an unusual hit @ 8 o'clock in the ten ring. Its perfectly circular, doesnt look like the other hole punches. Any thoughts as to how this happened?
