    I had a 2 slides Ceracoated on a couple of guns. Both guns needed a good break-in after that. Both would fail to completely go into battery and needed to hit the back of the slide. It took about 200 rounds of wear before they would reliably go into battery. After that I had no problems with them

    Mind sharing your load data?

    I use CCI primers, mixed brass, 3.9 grains of titegroup with 115grain rn copper plated xtreme bullets. Nothing fancy, but they go bang and are cheap to make.

    Is that on the high or low end of the powder charge for that bullet type and weight? My knowledge of plated projectiles is limited and I've read conflicting information about load data using that type of bullet. Seems like they fall in between cast and jacketed when it comes to powder charges.

    Shouldn't this load be right at 1,000 fps?

    Its on the lower end. These are not hot in anyway. And if you keep the projectile under 1200 fps, from what I have researched, you should be good with plated. Once over, the plating starts to fail.

    While I have never chronographed them to make sure, this was the goal for this load according to others loading data. This way they stay well below the 1200fps threshold just to be safe.
