Very cool! I've eyed those since they came out just haven't pulled the plug yet. I have the M&P9c and just picked up the M&P22 a couple of months ago. The M&P line is really top notch in my opinon and you'll love the Pro.

i test fired the regular M&P9 and was impressed with the trigger pull -- the Pro is supposed to have a lighter/smoother trigger pull --- cant wait!! :D

Looking at the shot by Freakdaddy, I'm wondering why are bullets a gold color?

Looking at the shot by Freakdaddy, I'm wondering why are bullets a gold color?

The casings are made of brass and serves two purposes. It allows the case to expand when fired which seals the chamber to prevent hot gasses from cutting the chamber or bolt face like a plasma torch but also retracts to close to it's original size which aids in extracting the case. Considering the firing rate of a fully automatic weapon will give you an idea of how quickly this happens. Other metals are used such as nickel, aluminum and even steel but brass is what is seen most often. Brass is cheap, fairly corrosion resistant, easy to reload and a softer metal than what is used in firearms components therefore putting less wear and tear on things like your extractor/ejector and such.

Copper is used in the bullets basically as a jacket or plating (two different processes) that goes over lead. Lead alone will not hold up to the higher pressures generated by modern ammunition components used in today's firearms as it will melt but it's still desireable as it's a dense material that gives strong kinetic energy. The copper protects the lead as it has a higher melting point and retains the bullets shape after leaving the muzzle aiding in accuracy especially at long ranges. Copper is softer than the steel used in rifle barrels so it is able to "engage" the rifling without damaging it and offers less fouling of the barrel than lead alone which also aids in accuracy. Although some manufacturers offer different "coatings", they all work under the same premise and copper is what is seen the most.

This is my basic understanding of it but someone who reloads may be able to offer more insight and perspective on the matter.

A couple I did for a local gunshop that builds AR style rifles that offers an entire line of Zombie Slayer rifles and accessories. Diamondback makes the pistols then the shop dips them in this Zombie pattern.

Thanks! I actually used wooden bobbins like what is used to wrap thread around. The way the baseplate on the magazine is designed on the 9mm versions allowed the gun to balance perfectly but it was still like building a house of cards LOL!

For high velocity rounds like from a rifle, lead bullets won't work, but for relatively low velocity handgun rounds, un-jacketed bullets work well. However, you can load handgun bullets hot enough that they'll start leading the barrel, or if you use copper plated bullets instead of copper jacketed bullets, you can start fragmenting the copper off the bullet.

Before the advent of moly coated bullets, lots of us reloaded lead handgun bullets because they're cheaper than copper jacketed.
