Has anyone tried Federal Match Gold Medal .45 semi-wadcutter ammo? any feeding problems in an HK USP fullsize .45?
What other match target rounds do you like for IPSA?
I also shoot HK USPf .4o at times, limited-10 and production.
If you are not there yet, better take up reloading. For the amount of ammo you need to shoot, Match ammo will make you broke. Plus you really don't need to run match ammo, it's a waste of money. 99% of the shooting you will do is under 25 yards. The Walmart WWB is fine. You don't need to spend anymore money on "match" ammo. I don't think I've ever seen anyone use Federal Match Gold Metal at an IPSC match.
FYI... If anyone wants some good match quality ammo for a reasonable price check out www.atlantaarmsandammo.com. They make a lot of ammo for competitors and factory teams. I shoot their .40 reloads in Major power factor out of my USP40f. They are RIGHT at the PF limit for me. I chrono'd them at 166.5 PF. So you can't get any softer on recoil and shoot major.
yea, just found the Federals at Midway, $723 per 1,000 , ouch
Right now I'm still using Magtech FMJ. Not ready to go down the do-it-yourself reload road. But that Atlanta arms looks interesting.
Anyone else? what are you using for IPSA limited-10 major power matches?
I've fired over 500 wadcutter handloads through my Tactical .45 with no problems. I use Remington 185 grain FMJ wadcutters over 5.3 grains of Bullseye. COL is 1.16 inches, which leaves about 1/32 inch of the bullet's bearing surface forward of the case mouth.
