Happy Fall, now get shooting
I, for one, am ready for it to cool down a bit. Being in the South, with the exceptions of traveling to other parts of the country during the summer that isn’t so steamy and taking advantage of their local weather to get rounds in, I like to keep my range time in the sticky months to professional outings to perform T&E and maintain muscle memory.
However, as soon as it starts getting cooler– hello Fall!– I ramp up my MW&R time on the range and actually enjoy what I am doing sans the 100-degree temps and 99-percent humidity.
The above is a sample of a big box of rounds that I just got from Ammo-to-Go to spend some quality time with these classics for an upcoming series of articles and they are on point with the selection.
For the circa-1920 M1914 Pocket Mauser in 7.65mm Browning:
For the circa-1960s FN Browning 1910/22:
For the circa-1943 FN Browning Pistole 640 Hi-Power
For continuing past the 2,500-round mark on my ongoing G19X and S&W M&P M.20 Compact tests, I also got a bunch of Winchester NATO 124 Grain FMJ (this is loaded slightly hotter than standard, roughly +P), Speer Gold Dot 124 Grain +P and Federal HST 147 Grain JHP
Plus, I plan on breaking out the gel on Federal’s new HST loads as well in .380 Federal HST 99 Grain JHP with an LCP etc.
