Last Stand on Earth
I finally found me one. It’s been 2 years since they’ve had one in stock. Figured I’d better nab it while it’s available.
With all that mess, I would have just bought a second 380 instead of ditching all you had.I just bought one recently too. Be forewarned, don't buy any flat nose bullets, ammo or bullet mold. This gun only like round nose bullets. The flat nose bullets will hit on the inside of the slide stop when you insert a mag and tip the top bullet down in the mag causing it to jam or miss feed. Other than that it's a great little gun. Unfortunately for me i have a flat nose bullet mold, had about 1,000 bullets made(which I'm currently making into other bullets). I also had a few hundred rounds loaded which i took apart and I'm currently reloading with round nose bullets. I just took the decapping pin out of the sizing die, re flaring and loading.
I do have another .380 but i prefer to keep all my ammo shootable in all my guns that i have multiples in the same caliber. I hate having tailored rounds for this gun and then that gun. I only two exceptions to that rule are 45-70 which i have some hotter rounds i don't shoot in my sharps and 30-06 loads that are only for my garand. It really wasnt too bad, the biggest heart breaker is melting all the bullets i spent a lot of time casting and coating. Now the problem i have is LEE does not make a 6 cavity round nose mold and the 2 cavity mold can't be found right now unless i want to spent way too much for it. I do have some 120gr loads in my book for .380 and i cast 124gr 9mm bullets so I'm going to load up some of them and see how they work. I don't think the 4 grain bullet weight variance will make much if any difference.With all that mess, I would have just bought a second 380 instead of ditching all you had.
