Again with GLA at the gong at 26 yards. I was 5 ouuta six. The mark up at the "ear" by paracord was from previous ammo that I failed to paint over!

Good report glock! I'm not too surprised that it shot low with one brand of .357 Sig ammo. It seems like lighter, faster bullets would shoot low. At least that is the way it works in revolvers.

Thanks all! Taking "Old Faithful" out today (P229). It will be a big milestone day! This will probably be the only P229 in the country with the distinction of 200 different loads put thru her. Shooting a couple of Hornady loads today..... and that means this P229 will now have shot all the Winchester, all the Federal, all the CCI Speer and all the Hornady loadings available.

It's probably the only gun no matter the model that has shot 200 different loads. Some of mine have shot quite a variety of my reloads, but none are anywhere close to that number.

I meant to say the only P229 in 357Sig... I hadn't thought maybe the only gun in any caliber

I guess it takes a special kind of weird to travel the path I'm on!

Imagine if someone in 1902 had started shooting one of each offering on 9mm offered...

Here is the picture with said P229 and offerings 198, 199 and 200! The shoot went very well! I had a lot of fun!!

Well glock...just be glad you're doing .357 Sig and NOT 9mm. You'd need a Cray super computer just to keep up with the data.
