Mabe I missed the point? I understood you to say the POI with your 230 grainers was still too high?

Pitchy, you missed the point. In all cases heavier bullets from pistols strike higher at normal pistol ranges. Heavier bullets are affected more by increasing the recoil of the pistol by raising the angle of departure more.

By changing only the powder charge, the greater speed allows the bullet to leave the barrel earlier before recoil raises the muzzle enough to change the POI.

I have tested this in my own shooting. It might not sound quite right, but do try it out. My reommendation is to go to a 200grain bullet

Not at all I agree completely and replied that I have a mold for the 230 grain bullet so will stick with it and change the sight.
Yepper have known that for years and have verified it also.  Smiley

Roo , 250 total shooters, 10 in my category,wish we had the temps from today over the shoot weekend. Was mid 70's and a nice breeze here today. The leaves are already falling, doesn't look good for the people who rely on the leaf peepers for income. Y'all have a good one.

Heavier bullet prints higher. To lower the POI try a lighter bullet like some of the Big-Lube offerings.

By changing only the powder charge, the greater speed allows the bullet to leave the barrel earlier before recoil raises the muzzle enough to change the POI. Reducing the charge, reduces recoil, but also lengthening the time in bore thus allowing it to leave at a higher angle

Good afternoon, good to be here; reheated coffee is fine with me.  I've been dropping by almost every day, but not taking the time to write anything, had too much going on; but it seems to be settling down to a dull roar again.

Watched those two hurricanes with interest, for those of you n their way, and friends in the greater Houston area.  All seem to have escaped major disaster, just losing some trees, and getting lots and lots of rain - but no flooding where they are.  Our younger son and his wife are long haul truckers, and they had been running a contract haul from Pueblo, CO to Port Arthur, TX - forth and back.  When the storm was eminent, their dispatcher held them in Pueblo for a few days, but decided that they could get one more run to Port Arthur in before it hit, so off they went.  They got into Port Arthur when the first of the outer bands hit, actually, drove in heavy rain from north of Houston; got unloaded, and headed back to Pueblo in heavy downpour, and it went with them as far a Dallas before they got out of the rain.  Back in Pueblo, they sat for a few days, and the company decided the job was going to be on indefinite hold, so off the went to other loads and adventures, mostly around the east and north, and mostly in rain, as the storm moved on north.  They showed up here at home this morning without notice, stopping by for a day on their way to L. A. (Torrance); is good to see them.

We have gotten our butts kicked by some sort of bug.  I came down with it in early August, and the Missus got it a few days later; it hurt me, but put her in the hospital with pneumonia for five days.  She came home with an order for oxygen and other meds.  But, we are getting better, slowly; I am going through a mild relapse right now, but hopefully, the antibiotics will kill it this time.

Glad to hear that you're on the mend, Li'l Roo, and back to your routines.

Time to go visit with the kids for a while before they head out again.

Later.

If the order hasn't gone in yet, please advise on pricing, etc., of deals and sew-ons as I'd like a couple of both, perhaps more.
Best regards and good weaving!

Gotcha.  I was trying to figure out what you were calling a button hole, it is actually just a seam that shows up in the pic, but what shows up is about the size of a button hole  Smiley .  The pin is 1.26" tall.

Thanks again for all the detail!

BTW, I know nothing more about Mounties than from the movies and such, but I must say to Sgt. Klondike that everything you are putting together looks outstanding!

One last thing, I was happy to see on the back that it is made in Canada, not China  Grin

Oh Bother!!  Undecided

Kent, Why on earth would you want to do that.  The current crop of reproductions are just that.  Reproductions.  They were never intended to be exact duplicates.  They aren't suppose to be duplicates.  They are suppose to "look fine from the Freeway."

Going to the trouble and effort, not to mention expense of trying to turn your reproduction into a duplicate will become an exercise in futility.  I have another word but I'm trying to be practical and kind.

BRS,  The answer is really simple.  Uberti takes care with their Roll Stamps and their marking.  Uberti doesn't appear to give two cents for the mechanical issues.  Pietta isn't doesn't really bother much with Roll Stamps and marking.  Pietta does care about the mechanicals.  Neither do much about correct hand fitting at the time of manufacture.  A Pietta takes much less fettling out of the box than a Uberti.  Both require some ministrations BEFORE they go into service.

The original sample examples were correctly fitted at the time of manufacture which resulted in good functionality.  Reliability was achieved with Caps of a different nature.  Original Caps were actually Water Proof and required a manly great whack to set off.  NONE of the guns from those halcyon days of yesteryear were ever expected to be run as hard for as long as we run them for CAS.  I think being super critical of the current crop of reproductions is a dis-service.  Expecting them to be a mirror image of the sample example will only bring disappointment.  Accept them for what they are.  Good looking reproductions.

That is also why I tend to use conicals.

In most SASS matches, my c&b 130 conicals weight more than half the shooters bullets.
