OK - I uploaded a quick Labradar video shooting 32acp to You Tube - I may revisit it but here is the first cut: 1.4gr vv310 - a bit fast because I want to get to 800fps and see how that load fares.

The backstops are 'Acreage Bullet Catches', made here in Nebraska. They are AR400 steel, very portable and very neat and I have them at 25 m/yds and 50 m/yds. I have a prototype for .223 (which will feature here in a week or two).

Greetings,

I recently posted my results with Fiocchi and Federal American Eagle commercial ammo.

The Fiocchi 73 grain FMJ RN would not stay on a repair center at 50 yards.

I took apart one round yesterday and discovered that the bullet measures 0.308".

No wonder it shot so poorly. Also, the brass is junk as the case wall variation is as much as 0.004".

The American Eagle 71 grain FMJ RN bullet measures 0.311" and eight shots fit into the ten ring at 50 yards.

The brass was better than the Fiocchi varying up to 0.002" wall thickness.

Interesting to note that the Federal bullet was Copper plated. The Fiocchi bullet had an exposed Lead base.

The Federal bullet also had a "dimple" in the base.

Oh yes, the barrel is a stock Pardini 32 ACP mounted in a machine fixture. Groove diameter is 0.314", bore diameter is 0.306".

One mystery solved....

Cheers,

Dave
