I’ve finally worked up enough courage to show you guys what I’ve been buying. I bought my first gun, g19, almost a year ago (around the time I joined NWFA). My G19, Kel-Tec, and ar15 are the only firearms I’ve bought that weren’t from a member here. Considering it hasn’t been 12mo since my first firearm, I’d say I’ve caught up somewhat. Can’t forget that I’ve accumulated these in probably the worst possible time to start too. Haven’t gotten out to shoot the mosin but that’s on my list of to-do.

Good luck finding HS-5, was my favorite 9mm powder till it was discontinued ~40 years ago forcing my conversion to Winchester 231.Although, if I had any HS5, an old Lyman manual shows 115gr. SWC loads at 1100fps. Pretty snappy for the old gal. As it is, I'll have to settle for about 1000 fps with some coated 100 gr SWCs, or who knows(?) with some PPU 71 gr HPs.
Ain't it the truth! One of the few powders I did not stock up on back then. Über conservative Lyman found the perfect powder for the 32 Long, as that is pushing on .38 Spl and even 9mm territory. The chambering to .32 H&R is tempting, as it will still fire both, plus the ancient .32 S&W if any of that even still exists.Good luck finding HS-5, was my favorite 9mm powder till it was discontinued ~40 years ago forcing my conversion to Winchester 231.
