    This caliber shines at 45gr and under. There's really not any traditional JHP in this caliber. There's a couple all copper hollow points that do expand, but they're under 40gr.

    yesterday was glorious, some squashes don't like me much anymore, tested 195 lr-198lr for the first time,winter squash lost most of it's insides so now i'm a bit more confident in these rounds. Yeah SKI19, I adore it here and wouldn't live anywhere else it's paradfise but it does sometimes hamper my range time, 6 feet of rain a year ohhhhyyeeaaahhhh.
    I was going to ask this same thing about what's the heaviest projectile that could be safely/efficiently shot from the ps90. wonder why there aren't more of the heavier loads available. could you get a 45gr. bullet up to 2000 fps or more safely BUFFMAN? certainly would make it hit a lot harder, I think I read somewhere that the common rounds produce about 50,000 psi, i'm not familiar with how much projectile weight affects psi, should get a good gunsmithing book and learn more..

    don't think you'll see a 45gr around 2000 fps. I recall the 45gr BBS topping around 1800 fps. I'm not a reloader, so those are just based on my experiences.

    thanks for that BUFFMAN I've spent a lot of time on here this weekend researching this and I'm seriously considering reloading. Mostly wanting to get the heaviest hitting cartridge the ps90 is capable of, Looks like the tumbling ones are the best. Some of what EA and R&R Weapon Systems has looks like it fits this pretty well, some with very high velocities but the prices are just a teeny tiny bit too expensive IMO. Have you or anyone you know of ever shot a bare un-jacketed bullet out of this? I don't know of a way one could jacket their own bullets if it ever came to a complete lack of supply. Might just have to settle for more " primitive" methods in that situation.
