One gun range trip - rare for me, M&P 2.0 5" FDE 9MM
« on: May 15, 2019, 08:05:16 PM »
First 15 rounds were 125 grain LRN on top of Unique.  This one showed promise.  I'll be loading some more, a little bit one side or the other, too, to see if it will do even better.  That was the last of that box and I'm pretty sure the M&P shot them better than the CZ75 Compacts/P01.

Next were the 140 grain (.38 special) LSWC I loaded just for the heck of it a couple years ago.  The would function in the CZ75 Compact just fine.  They wouldn't even chamber in the P09 9MM.  They functioned fine in the M&P but the group wasn't as good as the 126 grain LRN load.  I'm out of them anyway.  Again, 15 rounds.  They were kind of all over the place.

Then I shot some of the old 147 grain lead truncated coane bullets I used to shoot in my old M&P 9MM.  The new M&P 2.0 absolutely "hates" that ammo.  I didn't even take a picture of that target, just tossed it in the trash.  I went ahead and shot the whole box up just to free up the brass.  The CZ's don't shoot those loads well either.

The last ammo fired was the 115 grain Precision Delta hollow points the CZ's shoot so well.  I took a picture of the first two shots as they tore the same hole in the paper.  Then I screwed up and deleted it from the camera by accident.  When that happens it always results in me pressureing myself to keep the group "perfect" and that, or course, screws up the rest of the group.  I only have the 10 shot group picture.

Functioning was 100% as far as feeding, chambering ejecting.  A couple of the light/slow 147's did not lock the slide back on the last shot.

Right now, I'm kind of happy with it.  More shooting and maybe a better trigger might show up some better groups.  We'll see.

Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Nice shooting!

I've found the M&P 45 to shoot very well also.

I just picked up that exact gun last week at a pawn shop.  Now it's on my night stand with a OLight mini Valkarie ii.  Nice shooting gun that feels good in the hands.
