Slightly off topic but if you really want
to see a huge increase in point of impact
due to heavier weight bullets you should
try one of me 210-gr. 38-spl. loads!

Provides a whole new definition to using a
low bullseye hold, and they twist the gun
up in the hand substantially as well but
even at only 700-fps they penetrate like
no other 38-spl. load I have ever seen.

Same thing applies to the heavy weight 9mm
hard cast loads they penetrate a whole lot
better then the light weight little
speeders.

Just ran into something of interest!! With my new slight need for 147g bullets I could shop American Reloading and get a mixed lot as I am now loading all the sizes, It's a big savings when you look at the price, it's like getting 500 bullets for the price of 150 bought elsewhere or if trying to get one size at a time. Kind of cool. Craig

OK found a rear site for the 910s at Dillion so I bought it . Don't need it now but it's totally adjustable so I can set it up as I want for whatever loads i want. Craig

Most of the semi auto hand guns today come with fixed sights. I found a little CZ copy that had adjustable sights. It sure gives you more choices of bullet weights.

It's all about the speed of bullet in the barrel. For
most handguns, light fast projectiles exit the barrel
prior to muzzle flip. Heavy slower ones remain in the
barrle longer and thus point of aim is influenced by
the muzzle rise. Fairly common occurrance if you sight
in with one and switch to the other. Thus why the 147g
print higher.

Back in the day, 25 years ago I had a Ruger SRH and
adjusted the sights for 6 O'clock hold with 300g hard
cast. On a whim, I loaded up some 180g JHP with a max
charge of 296. These hot loads would run around
1900fps out of the 7 1/2 inch barrel. Mighty stout
load. The thing is they would print almost a foot low
with the SRH sighted in for 300g.
