We have been very reluctant to open our social media accounts as one FB and other social media groups are not extremely pro shooter pro gun. However we have a numerous request asking us where is our FB page , and yes Peer pressure was just to much for us 🙂
You can find us under acubullet on the facebook , please drop in and like our page I will try and share most of the random questions and answers on there as well as on the post section in our site , we also have a link on the skietbaan facebook page for those following skietbaan
Still waiting for a better url for acubullet
but skietbaan can be found at facebook.com/skietbaan
We thought we will use this area to add issues our shooters have found and try and create a single place where you can have a troubleshooting look.
When shooting lead bullets it is extremely in portent to flair your casing , if not you run the risk of scraping off the coating or even worse scraping off lead that will make it impossible to load the ammunition. Some shooters report the need to flair very little while others flair a hell of a lot , this is mostly due to the fact that not all 9mm have the same chamber dimensions , and if you have more then one 9mm you might have notices what seats well in one sometimes does not even seat in the other.
When flaring is done wrong it comes out like this , and it is quite common for new re loaders to experience this
As you can clearly see this is not ideal and is easily remedied by flaring the first 0.5mm of the casing , personally I use my Dillon’s powder dispenser to accomplish this as my auto bullet seater needs a little flaring to not let the bullet drop out.
One of our members sent me these images after a unfortunate test run with new ammo. After ruling out the barrel size and bullets used , we thought that it might have been a half load or even just a primer that punched the bullet into the barrel and then had the second round bulge the barrel but it turned out something far more sinister.
The powder for one or another reason turned out to be at fault on a burn test it would lite like expected burn a bit and then just fizzle then just to start back up again. It seems that moisture got into the powder and had the side effect of not igniting at the same curve as usual , this almost cost the shooter 2 guns . Once again reminding us to be extra careful when reloading.
In the past 3 years prices on 9mm bullets have more then doubled. this is has made it very hard for many shooters to maintain there shooting discipline.
We started out by setting up a facility to remedy this for our selves , but quickly recognized the need is far greater then we anticipated.
Creating lead coated bullets allows us to offer them to the public at less then 50% of what a traditional Copper Jacketed bullet would cost. Thinking of the average shooter that comes to the range once a week this translates into a finomenal saving.
We have run surveys between shooters and gun stores a like and the consent is that bullet sales and purchases have dropped substantially. We aim to rectify this ASAP.
Accurate and affordable bullets are possible. Don’t be afraid to embrace change. We offer TRYME options for those who want to see the performance.
We have done extensive testing on the accuracy of our 9mm rounds and have found that we have the same average consistency then any of the competition jacketed ammunition on the south-african market.
Here are some of the results tested first at 5m then 10m and then 25m .
These were obtained with a cz75 pre b. We have also done extensive testing with the glock and s&w range of pistols , please drop us a email if you have any questions , our email can be found on the main page
