    Got to the range at last!

    The Spectrum preformed with no hitch 100. rds FMJ and JHP very satisfied, lot less recoil than expected from such a light pistol.Next week will take reloads and see how it handles cast PCed.

    Any chance you could recall which FMJ and JHP you used with success? I'm curious as I'm exploring options beyond my standard American Eagle FMJ. Thanks.

    Thank you for relaying that information. I have been pleased with the America Eagle/Federal 95gr FMJ for all-around use (target/practice/concealed carry).

    I just picked up some Inceptor ARX and Remington Ultimate Defense ammunition for my Spectrum, but I haven't had a chance to get to the range with them yet. I'm hesitant to use new-to-me ammunition, particularly as defensive rounds, in my concealed carry weapon without any range practice with it first.

    How did the 105swc do? I just got that mold last week but haven't cast with it yet.

    That's okay, I beat you to it LoL. Sunday I cast and coated a bunch to test. Dropped at 102-103 grain and sized them for a few different pistols, some at .357" and some at .358". Can't speak for the Spectrum, I don't have one yet, but these functioned great and were extremely accurate in my Bersa Thunder, Baby Rock and LCPII. They wouldn't chamber in my Pico or Bodyguard, bummed
