    Hey. I got an AFS. Took it to the range and shot a partial box of 115 grain loads out of it. Nice. Now I need dies, and I need to cast up some boolits….
    This is my first, ever, 9mm. I can't get over the magazine capacity. Wow. Such an awesome piece of machinery. Name:  afs.jpg

    Picked up some dies yesterday at Grafs. The only boolits I have cast up are some 95 grain flat-nose for a 380. I'm going to load those over a charge of Unique and see how they shoot out of the Taurus.
    Having a new gun like this should keep me occupied for a while.

    ahh, well I am sure they will shoot, don't know how well?
    the 92/99 are basically set up to run on 124 grain NATO pressure ammo as they are beretta clones.
    I have fired 92, 100 , 115, 124 grain self defense rounds from most all my 9 MM and they were accurate, but then again they had some ummp on them and were either jacketed or all copper projectiles.
    let us know how it works out.

    Here's how she did with some 95 grain cast bullets. The Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook has data for a 92 grain bullet. I loaded these over 5.x grains of Unique and shot them off-hand at 50 feet. This is a 32 shot group.
    I'm very pleased. The gun is easy to shoot and it had no problems of any kind. And it likes Unique powder, which is what I try to use for all my handgun loads.
    This is going to be a very nice range gun for me. Name:  group95gr.jpg

    I have had both guns, a Taurus M92 and a M99, both with alloy frames, and they are good guns.
    I fired a few Cor Bon 115 +P HP out of them, and they worked great. They should last a lifetime with regular ammo.
