We've come to that time of the year when our server lease and domain name registrations are coming up for renewal. In the past, many of you have expressed your generosity in the form of donations in order to keep the site running - I'm asking for your support again this year.

Please visit our donation information page for more details and, if you enjoy this site, if you've ever attended our gatherings or, if this community has brought you some knowledge or entertainment, please give what you can to keep us going.

I'm no expert with 45 ACP but a lot of the semi-wad holes I've seen are pretty crisp almost like a hole punch. Do you think they are key-holing a little bit? Where any hotter loads making more crisp holes? Just a thought I could definitely be wrong. :)

The bullet holes are not key holes. The tears are because the targets are not affixed to a firm backer.

I understand. The targets I see have a full cardboard backer so they punch out clean circles.

That group was very good so I think you have a winner. Not that you need me to tell you that! :D

Edit: I use poly coated bullets now too. They shoot very clean in the gun and are supposed to keep down lead in the air.
