So, it works and I’ve got a load that’s pretty dam close to my target! The grips looked awful and I can’t readily justify spending the money to replace them. I decided to stipple them and I gotta say, it really changes the look of the gun! It’s also comfy but very ‘grippy.’
Once I get more small pistol primers I’m going to load up some ammo and really wring this thing out. When I’ve got it settled and and I’m confident in it’s performance I’ll likely strip it down and GunCote it.
