I'm happy to report that I got a call from my dealer today who told me my USP Compact 45 was in and I could come by and pick it up tomorrow. Always anxious to see a new purchase, look it over awhile, take apart and get any grease out of it, lightly oil and finally to the range this Friday. Pics will be forthcoming late tomorrow. I already have 100 rounds awaiting it's arrival and may have time to add some more. I seldom buy factory as for $30/box I only do that when I'm testing SD ammo so Friday will be primarily reloads of 230 gr FMJ, 230 gr FMJ-FN and some 200 gr Speer SWC TMJ. I'm still not sure about the rifling in hk as to whether lead is ok or not since polygonal rifling doesn't "cotton" to lead bullets. The rifling is not as deep and there's no lands...from what I've read.
