Shooting Sports USA - July 2020 - 21

mag inserted and the charging handle
run to chamber the first round-they
may not chamber that first round if an
odd number of rounds are loaded. That
puts the first round on the right side of
the follower. They seem to prefer an
even number of rounds that puts the first
round on the left side of the follower.
I checked this with the PMag, and it
made no difference-even or odd number,
right or left first round, they all fed.
A full 30-round magazine of each of the
loads were run through the gun at multiple
targets on my range, and then each was
accuracy tested from my 25-yard benchrest.
The accompanying chart will show the
results. I have to note that this is one of the
most accurate PCC guns I have tested to
date, and it liked all the bullet weights.
With only one magazine a match was out
of the question, so I headed over to my
club's weekly Steel Challenge practice day
to allow other shooters to run it. The first
to grab it was our Match Director, Scott
Hartford, (a Grand Master RFRO). I had the
30-round mag full of the 115-grain CCI load,
and after emptying that on rapid five-plate
runs he loaded 30 rounds of his own 9mm
"soft" reload. After 60 rounds, I had
to almost resort to physical force to
pry the gun from his grasp. He was
impressed. Several other M and A
Class shooters ran it with their own
handloads and were as positive in
their opinion as Hartford.
By this point there were well over
450 rounds through the gun, without a
single malfunction. And with nothing
more than my initial out-of-the box
BCG lube. My own tests were with

factory loads, but after watching those various
handloads run through the gun I got curious.
Like any competitive shooter I want the
softest-recoiling load that will meet the
required Power Factor and reliably run the
gun. The RDB operating action on this gun
uses a lighter BCG than other PCC blowback
guns, and I wondered if that might allow the
use of lighter handloads. So, I dug out my
"Mouse Puff" Steel Challenge 9mm load.
This load launches a 120-grain Bayou
coated lead bullet at 935 fps (112 PF) from
the five-inch barrel on my S&W M&P
C.O.R.E. It will run reliably if the gun is clean.
It's perfectly legal in Steel Challenge. It also
makes it easy to recover my brass, because
it all will be sitting in a neat pile two feet to
my right. It won't run in my PCC or in many
of the other 9mm pistols I've tried it in. But
the Stormtrooper loved it and spit the fired

The six-position buttstock
includes an ambi sling plate.
The 16.1-inch medium taper
barrel (top) includes CMMG's
SV muzzle brake.
