It works well. You spend a little more time on the set up but worth the investment. just make sure you pick up a bottle of tempilaq - takes the guess work out of the process.

hope all is well with everyone! despite being busy with other projects and my full time job, i managed to do something ive wanted to do for a while. i drew, printed, and shot some 3d printed 9mm projectiles out of my ar9 that i just got back up and running again.

they still need tweaking, but they did seal up against the rifling and stabilize. once i get the size and profile finalized i will be putting metal weights in the center to try and get them to weigh more. right now they are just shy of 14 grains. if you want to see pics check out @booozyhoperators on IG (3 o's).

i also finished my ar10 build and now i need to buy a mighty armory 308 sizing die as i absolutely hate the hornady sizing die i have; the expander ball is way too hard on my machine. its been a very warm winter where i am at with very little snow, so i have been tacking advantage of that.

Interesting concept. curious to see how they hold up with a little more powder and what bullet design you come up with to stabilize.

I have the might armory decapping die and they are awesome!!

i basically re drew a gallant 125gr round nose coated projectile. its close but its not a perfect match of the gallant bullet. i recovered 2 projectiles and you can tell they sealed against the rifling, they also stabilized okay. i shot them through a chrono, but i was having issues with the thing and didnt get good readings.

right now the biggest issue is trying to get some mass inside these projectiles. i might give lead a shot or see if i can find some 25 acp projectiles to up the weight. its sort of counter intuitive to stuff a bullet into a 3d printed bullet, but i guess that is whats needed to get it done. someone suggested stuffing the prints with tungsten, but i was told i will likely run into some sort of legal issue (armor piercing stuff?). its also incredibly expensive compared to lead. i think im going to give lead a shot first; although i need to finalize my ogive and bullet OAL profile first before i move on.
